Angle should take a few months and resurface around Royal Rumble Time, for a "Final Run" culminating at WM 32. Make sure fans know it's his "Last Match", maybe one last tangle with Lesnar or Taker, but make "Kurt Angle's Retirement" a centerpiece of the show, like the ends for Ric Flair & HBK were. Given the size of the stadium WWE will need to pull out all the stops to get a sell out and since top draws of the recent past like Austin, Flair, Hogan, & Hart all cant go in the ring and HBK is unlikely to wrestle then you've got squeeze every last ounce out of what you have....Cena, Taker, HHH, The Rock (if you can get him), Lesnar, and Angle.

It's a shame, given Angle's skill level he should be close to his prime performance wise, look at how good Taker, HBK, Flair, HHH, all were/are in their mid 40s, but Angle has had so many injuries that he is breaking down. Sting is in better wrestling shape at 56 than Angle, but after a break and some rest there is no reason he couldn't work a limited schedule of RAW's and maybe a PPV leading into a Mania farewell, especially since he wouldn't have to wrestle per se on every RAW/Smackdown appearance, he can move story along with promos (where he is great).

Just like Sting deserves a farewell tour of sorts and last hurrah so does Angle. He was an integral part of WWE success during some of it's most profitable times and one of the biggest superstars to come from the era AFTER the 80s (Hogan, Piper, Dusty, Flair, Savage, etc) and early 90s (HBK as a singles star, Hart, Nash, Austin, etc). Other than The Rock it's hard to think of anyone that started in the mid to late 90s and achieved higher success and name recognition than Angle, at least until Cena.

There was a time, when I believed WWE would bring Angle back for a HOF induction without any wrestling, but with the way things are now, I can't see that happening. The powers that be in WWE obviously want nothing to do with Angle, because they believe he's too much of a liability to take a chance on for a number of reasons, and Angle himself said WWE treated him like a "nobody" when he contacted them about a comeback.

And it's already been said, but Angle will not receive the red carpet treatment with the likes of Brock Lesnar, The Rock, and Sting. He'll have to settle for the second-tier team with the Dudley Boyz, and if all the reports about Angle wanting to return to WWE are true, you get the feeling Angle wants nothing to do with a secondary role, because he believes he should be in the upper echelon.

I just have a hard time picturing Angle returning to WWE in a non-wrestling or wrestling role, and I have no reason to believe it'll happen, when you consider recent events with Hogan, Snuka, and Seth Rollins' girlfriend. WWE quickly severed all ties with Hogan for something that happened eight years ago, and Hogan's legacy in pro wrestling easily trumps Angle's legacy.

Angle taking a break is the right the move, and as others have said, this might be a slow process for Angle easing his way into retirement. He's conquered every milestone imaginable in TNA, and I'll be shocked if WWE decides to give him another chance in the future.

Angle had given himself to TNA many, many times over, so he deserves to take as much time as possible to break up. He also deserves to be able to go wherever he may be needed. The guy has been in the industry for almost 20 years, and that means he's lot a lot of mileage on his body. Much like Sting I wouldn't be mad at Angle it he decided to have one more WWE run.
