While everyone was thrilled to see Kurt Angle get the nod for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame, one of the big questions on everyone's mind circles around when and where Angle will step back into the ring as a competitor.
Rumors have been swirling that Angle might have been a surprise entrant in the 2017 Royal Rumble, but his nomination makes that seem less likely, considering more people are now expecting to see the former champion.
Yesterday on Twitter, a current superstar may have given us the answer as to who Angle will step into the ring with first.

Rusev makes perfect sense for an Angle return program. As we saw with the brief return of Shawn Michaels, Rusev seems to be the WWE's pick for comedic heel to take the fall of a returning legend. Considering that legend is draped in the red, white, and blue, and Rusev is still saddled with a 1980s evil foreigner gimmick, we shouldn't be the least bit surprised if the Bulgarian Brute has to face off with the Olympic Hero.
