If you’ve watched WWE 24’s latest Kurt Angle: Homecoming, you’d know what it means for the WWE Hall of Famer to have finally returned ‘home’ after 11 years. Ever since he was named General Manager of Monday Night Raw the night after WrestleMania, it was obvious that it the GM storyline was WWE’s way of preparing a nice long build-up for his in-ring return.
The original plans was for Kurt to mark his return match was scheduled for Wrestlemania 34, but the recent angle (no pun intended), where the two-time WWE champion has been seen indulging in weird text messages (along with announcer Corey Graves) for weeks, is an indication towards something more than just one Mania match.

The boss’ daughter sandwiched between the Game and a nerdy Kurt even though they kept saying they’re just friends. So 17 years later, here is how it plays out. Notice how Graves mentions to Kurt that he is respected by all, and that his revelation will eventually be pardoned. So Stephanie marks her television return since going through a table at Mania 33, and Kurt discloses their relationship to the world. Add to that an irate Triple H and it…
