Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated on Twitter that WWE has been calling former talent about coming back to the company: ”[WWE is] calling lots of 40+ year old guys to return for the new era,”

According to sources, this talent includes the likes of Goldberg, Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio and TNA’s Jeff Hardy.

Goldberg has been rumored to return to the ring since WrestleMania 32, but it is likely his return will be limited run or a one-off match at WrestleMania 33. However, WWE is hoping they can squeeze a couple of big matches out of Goldberg so they can help bolster a brand split.

Tapping Into Big Data Is Easier Than You Think

Kurt Angle has been “angling” (no pun intended) for a WWE return for over a year with no success. WWE is discussing bringing Angle back and putting him on the Smackdown brand. To make things even more interesting, WWE is said to be kicking around the idea of aligning Angle with NXT tag team ‘American Alpha’ to form a new version of “Team Angle”.

Rey Mysterio is currently aligned with Lucha Underground but it is said that Mysterio is open to a WWE return and WWE is interested in the same. With WWE’s globalization efforts and brand expansion Mysterio, who departed WWE in early 2015, would be a great addition to either RAW or Smackdown, with the likely destination being Smackdown.

Although he is currently signed with TNA, Jeff Hardy has not been shy about a potential WWE return, where he aims to close out his career. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Hardy opened up about his desires to return to WWE:

“I can feel my body telling me something. I don’t know how much longer I’ve got, and naturally I would love to end with aWrestleMania and I would love to have a Hell in a Cell. That’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’ve always wanted to headline ‘Mania” Hardy said.

Hardy may have to wait a bit for a WWE return but I am told he is on their radar.

WWE is also interested in Carlito, John Morrison, Cryme Tyme (JTG & Shad Gaspard), Shelton Benjamin among others.

Javy Dreamer:

As long as they don’t rely too much in the old timers I would be ok, but I think they have enough talent to this right now. Otherwise we’ll get on the same issue, a lot of main players injured and no one else in a position to replace them.
