As announced on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, Kurt Angle’s “important news” will finally be revealed next week. They’ve been teasing this for several weeks to lead up to a big reveal that would boost ratings for Raw. More importantly, this secret is seemingly leading to something at SummerSlam.
The rumor that has been going around is that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon will be involved in some way and that would lead to a match between Angle and Triple H at SummerSlam. WWE is looking to load up this show and make it the biggest SummerSlam in history. An Angle vs. Triple H match will probably draw in a lot of subscribers to the WWE Network.
Angle has said in interviews that he does think that he will eventually wrestle again but he feels that his role as Raw GM is Vince McMahon’s way to test him out and make sure that he stays clean. Angle has been clean and sober for 4 years and has done a good job in his figurehead role. If he does wrestle then he will likely not go on a full-time schedule and they would use him for big shows.
WWE is expecting a big ratings boost for next week’s show. They’ve also announced that Roman Reigns will battle Samoa Joe in a number 1 contenders match to determine who will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
