Stephanie McMahon, the Raw Commissioner, made her return last night on Raw and immediately put Kurt Angle on notice…and back in the ring for the Survivor Series.
McMahon, last seen at the conclusion of the Mae Young Classic finale, threatened Angle and told him that she will find a new General Manager if Team Raw does not annihilate Team Smackdown at the upcoming Survivor Series. She then named the WWE Hall of Famer the captain of Team Raw. Stephanie blamed Kurt for last week’s Smackdown takeover and said Shane embarrassed Angle and the whole Raw roster.
Angle has found himself back wrestling unexpectedly after Roman Reigns was ill and a replacement was needed for the TLC main event. Angle teamed with The Shield and defeated Miz, Strowman, Kane, Sheamus, and Cesaro in a 5-on-3 handicap TLC match.
The rumored Raw vs Smackdown traditional 5-on-5 match at the Survivor Series will pit Angle, Strowman, Reigns, Joe, and Balor vs Shane, Orton, Styles, Roode, and Nakamura.
