There have been endless rumors about Kurt Angle potentially returning to WWE for a final run with the company before hanging up his wrestling boots once and for all.

Kurt Angle is likely to be a hot topic in WWE news and rumors through at least Wrestlemania 33 next year, but 2017 may end up being a return to WWE for Angle only not in the way most people have been thinking.

This year, WWE has relied heavily on marketing Goldberg as a “special addition” to 2K Sports’ WWE 2K17, which will be released next month for all major game consoles.

Naturally, that has lead to several rumors about a potential return to WWE for Goldberg, but it seems that the early word for the next “additional character” for next year’s WWE2K18 could be Kurt Angle himself.

According to a report from, 2K officials are considering Angle as their top choice to help market the game next year, which typically leads to being feautred on WWE programming in some fashion.

WWE 2K17 hasn’t even been released yet, so it is very early to be talking about next year’s edition of the game. However, it could be the thing that finally bridges the gap between Angle and WWE.

Do you think Kurt Angle is a good choice for next year’s WWE 2K18?
