Following the return of WWE Hall of Famer and seven-time World Champion Trish Stratus to the promotion on the latest episode of WWE Monday Night RAW in Toronto, WWE has now announced the return of another veteran superstar. As per the latest announcement by WWE, Hall of Famer and five-time world champion Kurt Angle will make his return to the red brand, during their upcoming show in Pittsburgh. The 53-year-old Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling has made occasional appearances on WWE’s TV shows ever since his General Manager storyline ended in 2018.
