WWE Stars We Want to Return to the Ring in 2017

The ability to perform in front of millions of people around the world is always the dream for any professional wrestler, and the WWE is the only place that can make that happen at the moment. Wrestlers seem to crave the spotlight after retirement, which is why the WWE always seems to bring back a few old stars every year. The returns of Goldberg and Mickie James in 2016 shocked wrestling fans everywhere, and they are hoping for more of the same this year. These are the four WWE stars that we want to see return to the ring in 2017.

Kurt Angle

After having a strained relationship for years, the WWE recently announced their plans to induct Kurt Angle into the WWE Hall of Fame in April. This new working relationship has opened the door for Angle returning to the ring at some point this year. There is no denying that Kurt Angle is one of the most talented wrestlers to ever get inside the ring, so nobody will complain about seeing him deliver one or two more superb matches.

Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus may be the most talented female wrestler of all-time. Without Trish, there is no way that Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch would be able to headline WWE events. Stratus was supposed to return to a WWE ring in 2016, but that plan got canceled after she got pregnant. Since she clearly wants to wrestle again, nothing should stop Trish Stratus from making a return to the WWE in 2017 after fully recovering from her pregnancy.

Rob Van Dam

Rob Van Dam was a rising star in ECW before the company was sold to the WWE. Despite being one of the few men fortunate enough to win the WWE Championship, Rob Van Dam’s two stints with the company were rather disappointing. Van Dam finished his latest run in the WWE in 2014, and he has not made any independent wrestling appearances since 2015. Rob Van Dam has always been in excellent shape, so it should not take too long for him to get ready for a return to the ring.

CM Punk

CM Punk did not have many kind words to say about the WWE and Vince McMahon since his retirement from professional wrestling. While Punk stated he never plans to return to a wrestling ring, his new mixed martial arts career has not gone as planned. If CM Punk does not put on a good performance in his next fight, then he will likely never get a professional MMA fight again.

CM Punk was one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all-time, so he will always be welcomed back by the fans. Even if it happens in an organization other than the WWE, fans are certainly holding out hope that CM Punk changes his views on the professional wrestling industry very soon. The odds of this happening seem pretty good because it may be his only way to make a steady income in the near future.
