Kurt Angle has teased the return of Team Angle on Instagram.
Team Angle has had many incarnations led by the 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist but the matter in question refers to three man faction that consisted of Kurt Angle, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin that began in 2002 in WWE. The team of Haas, Benjamin and Angle was captained by the Olympian before he fired them from the stable for losing the WWE Tag Team Championship in 2003 and beginning a losing streak.
Haas and Benjamin shared such impressive in-ring chemistry that they continued to team up even after being fired from Team Angle. Dubbing themselves as The World’s Greatest Tag Team and sometimes going by the name Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team, the duo had dominated Ring Of Honor (2010- 2013) where they became two-time ROH World Tag Team Champions and had also graced the independent circuit.
Recently, the current on-vacation RAW General Manager took to Instagram to post a throwback photo of the group. Angle noted his desire to reunite the team “one more time”.
It’s no secret that the WWE Universe had earlier speculated a Modern Era Team Angle consisting of Angle and The American Alpha (Jason Jordan and Chad Gable). With Gable and Jordan’s singles careers having drastically headed deep south ever since their split, it would be quite interesting to see the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions form a three man faction with Kurt Angle given that Jordan is the Olympian’s kayfabe son in WWE.
Kurt Angle is currently on a “short vacation” during which Constable Baron Corbin is serving the duties of General Manager on RAW. According to reports, Angle was written off TV so that he could prepare for an upcoming in-ring return against Baron Corbin or Brock Lesnar in the near future.
Brock Lesnar laid the seeds for a possible feud with Angle when he attacked the Olympian a month ago on RAW. Corbin’s constant insults and interference in Angle’s bookings along with the misuse of powers as RAW General Manager are valid grounds for the 13-time World Champion making an in-return against the Lone Wolf.
