As noted, WWE officials reportedly confirmed to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter this week that despite speculation and reports from Kurt Angle himself, WWE would not be bringing him back to the company.
Angle took to Facebook this weekend and posted the following on his future, apparently blaming websites for trying to spin his comments on the Mark Madden radio show about returning:
In response to some of your questions today regarding the WWE, and all of the media fanfare about it the last few days, I want to, once again, say that our confidential conversation never discussed the brand split. A few wrestling sites seem to have put a spin on this by twisting some words around to fit their agenda, something that I have no control over. What I CAN control is my own life, and my life isn’t only wrestling. I do not expect to be in wrestling much longer. I AM excited about my future. Thank you.
