In an interview with TMZ Sports, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle noted that he is not ruling out a return to the ring, but noted that he WILL NOT be making a surprise return at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view this Sunday.

“Royal Rumble is not gonna happen. A lot of people are assuming it, a lot of writers are writing about it, I haven’t talked to WWE about anything after WWE Hall of Fame.”
