10+ years ago the name Kurt Angle was synonymous with success. Olympic Gold Medalist, multiple time World Champion, King of the Ring, Intercontinental Champion, Tag Team Champion, European Champion, the list goes on. Angle in 2005/2006 was a sure fire Hall of Famer and would likely leave one of the most impressive legacies in all of Professional Wrestling. To say I was a Kurt Angle fan would be a huge understatement. Even today the man still holds a place in my mind as one of the very greatest of all time. Defending 2016 Kurt Angle seems to be a daunting task though. Recent speculation and “confirmation” of an imminent Kurt Angle return to WWE has me thinking back at his career, WWE departure, and if a return is really a good thing.
