Rumors have been swirling that Kurt Angle might be making a return to the WWE in the near future.

Angle revealed that his TNA contract expires on Sept. 21 and said that he expects the next deal he signs to be his last one.

Here are the top five matches for the Olympic Hero upon his return to the WWE.

Everything about Jack Swagger screams Kurt Angle. I’d like to see Angle come in and reclaim his character; oh it’s true, it’s true.

Back in 2002, a kid wearing red shorts and boots made his pro debut against Kurt Angle; that kid was John Cena. I’d like to see Cena return the favor and wrestle Angle upon his return.

3. Randy Orton

Kurt Angle had some infamous Twitter outbursts where he claimed that Randy Orton stole his finisher, the “Angle Slam.” I’d like to see him get in the ring with Orton and take it back.

Alexander Rusev has been unstoppable in the WWE. I’d like to see Kurt Angle return and reclaim his position as the “American Hero” by ending Rusev’s win streak. #Murica!

One of the greatest matches that I’ve ever seen was Angle vs. Lesnar in an Iron Man Match for the WWE Championship on Smackdown, where Lesnar outlasted Angle 5-4 to become the WWE Champion. Plus, Angle lost to Lesnar at Wrestlemania XIX. I would imagine that Angle would like to correct those losses.
