Where is Kurt Angle?
Kurt Angle was released from the WWE in April as part of the company's budget cut operation. The Olympic Gold Medalist has since not signed with any other promotion.
The WWE Hall of Famer returned for a surprising appearance in May as the special guest referee in the Steel Cage Match between Timothy Thatcher and Matt Riddle.
He made another appearance at the end of May to introduce Matt Riddle as the newest edition of SmackDown. Angle was offered the role to become the manager of The Original Bro. However, the former WWE Champion refused the proposal as he intended to focus on his health.
Kurt Angle has also devoted his energy to his nutrition business while also spending some quality time with his family.
