One of the biggest news to hit professional wrestling in a very long time is the announcement that Kurt Angle is going to finally be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during Wrestlemania 33 weekend in Orlando, Florida. That means that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be busy doing promotions to get as many eyes on that pay per view as possible. Angle was interviewed by Lilian Garcia this week on her podcast show. When asked who he would like to face one more time, Angle did not hesitate to name AJ Styles. The two of them had many a classic matches in TNA.

One of the ways for this match to take place is for Styles to defeat John Cena at the Royal Rumble to retain the WWE Heavyweight Championship. That would increase his chances of heading into Wrestlemania 33 with the belt. That along would be a tremendous story because very people once thought that Styles would be given such a high profile spot by World Wrestling Entertainment.

Angle could then win the Royal Rumble to earn himself a title shot against Styles. By going that route, management can skip the weeks it would require to set up a story line between the two. The commentators already have plenty to work with because of their history together in TNA. They do not necessarily need to mention the company. WWE can simply have them talk about the two of them being former rivals. Angle pulled out of a wrestling show in Scotland that is set to take place this upcoming weekend. That has led to speculations that he might show up at the Royal Rumble on Sunday night.

To their credit, World Wrestling Entertainment is trying their best to include as many surprises as possible in the Royal Rumble. Seeing Angle being victorious at the end of the night would count as a huge surprise.
