During the same weekend, Triple H was also in town to film some segments for WWE at the Arnold Sports Festival. The two of them made time to have a little meeting. No word yet on what was discussed, but since Angle is no longer with TNA and is a free agent, the belief was that they discussed a possible return to World Wrestling Entertainment.
