Wrestling fans waiting to see Kurt Angle get back to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) might need more patience because the company is unlikely signing him back following the recent issues that involved some of its superstars. 

A few days ago, there were rumors the WWE is reaching out to its former superstars with the brand split approaching. One of the names included was Angle's, who wrestled for the company from 1998 to 2006. 

This news delighted fans because Angle is one of the best technical wrestlers in the industry. Along with this, he is also skilled in cutting promos and took part in some of the unforgettable storylines in the WWE. 

However, according to Cageside Seats, a comeback for Angle is not being considered as of the moment because the WWE, "is hesitant to do anything with anyone who might be controversial." This was brought by the recent issues that placed Adam Rose, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler, and Roman Reigns under the spotlight. Rose and Lawler were arrested for domestic assault charges, while Reigns is currently serving a 30-day suspension for violating the company's wellness policy. 

Angle also had issues in the past, including legal battles. Perhaps that is the reason why the WWE is not planning on bringing him back for now, although it would be easier to sign him to a contract since he is no longer working for Impact Wrestling (aka Total Nonstop Action Wrestling). 

Currently, Angle is busy wrestling for independent promotions and has a couple of matches scheduled for this year. 

The news is unfortunate for Angle, who has expressed his desire to return to the WWE a few times. Recently, during a guesting on the Mark Madden radio show, Angle sounded confident regarding a comeback, with the only uncertainty is when it will happen.
