– As previously reported, Kurt Angle is reportedly set to return to the ring on a very limited schedule barring a passed physical. According to Ringside News, WWE has been considering bringing Kurt back on the Smackdown brand because that’s where he spent the majority of his WWE career, and they also feel that Smackdown could use the star power more than RAW. However, it’s also being said that he may just be a brand neutral talent and alternate between RAW and Smackdown.
– WWE announcer Tom Phillips has gotten himself into some controversy, as an Instagram user claims that he sent vulgar sexual messages via Instagram and Twitter. The woman, who’s Instagram handle is “missythetattoedgirl” decided to make this public when she was informed that Tom Phillips was engaged. Below is a picture of the messages (contains some suggestive language) along with the caption. No word on if WWE has been made aware of the situation or if any disciplinary action will be taken.
“This is why I don’t trust people. Without my friends, I never would have known that a high profile WWE commentator who was talking to me and wanted to get together, is engaged. I had zero idea and I couldn’t be any more sorry to the girl involved. You deserve anybody. Nobody is faithful anymore.
