Kurt Angle to serve as special guest referee for NXT cage fight next week

Kurt Angle, who was released from WWE as part of the mass layoffs that took place in April, will be serving as a special guest referee on NXT next week on USA Network.

Angle is being brought back to officiate the cage fight between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher, a match which will headline next week’s broadcast.

Riddle and Thatcher are former tag team partners as Thatcher was brought in to replace Pete Dunne who is stuck in the UK and couldn’t defend the NXT Tag Team titles with Riddle. But the partnership did not last long as Thatcher turned on Riddle after a couple of weeks. The two already wrestled each other on NXT, a match which Riddle won.

Before being released, Angle was serving as a producer for WWE and was surprisingly let go when WWE fired and furloughed over 50 WWE Superstars, producers, and many more staff from their corporate headquarters.
