Kurt Angle

Kurt Angle

WWE

Kurt Angle is going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame March 31.

Kurt Angle is still an active wrestler.

So Kurt Angle will all but definitely wrestle for WWE again.

(The only apparent hurdle is Angle's health: His years of neck and other injuries may prevent him from passing WWE's medical testing.)

The Olympic gold medalist and six-time WWE World Champion returning to the company's ring after a decade away may seem like it promises a lot of interesting new match-ups.

It really doesn't, though.

Angle has already wrestled, and wrestled again, not only the company's part-timers (Triple H, The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and The Rock) and most established veterans (John Cena, Randy Orton, The Big Show, Chris Jericho) but also, through his time in TNA, many of WWE's fresher faces (AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe and even, through TNA's relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling, NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura).

This drought reflects WWE's struggle to build new stars in the time since Angle defected to TNA just as much as it reflects the future hall of famer's prolific, traveled career.

Nonetheless, if Angle does indeed don the singlet (then yank down the straps) for WWE again, there are few stars I'd like to see him wrestle for the first time:
