It looks like an Olympic Hero is already close to re-signing with WWE after being included in the Black Wednesday massive WWE releases in April.

According to Wrestlingnews.co, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is close to signing a new deal with the company following his release back in April due to COVID-19 cutbacks. Angle was recently used on Wednesday's episode of NXT on USA as the special guest referee in the Matt Riddle and Timothy Thathcer cage fight.

Angle's non-compete 90-day clause is expected to end in July. Reports are that WWE higher-ups don't want to lose him to competition, and may bring the Olympic Hero back along with their furloughed employees.
