Kurt Angle Announced For Upcoming Raw

Kurt Angle

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle will be returning to Monday Night Raw!

On the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus made her return to WWE television to address the audience in her hometown on Toronto, ON, Canada. She was interrupted by Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY, who initially pretended to be fans of her, but soon turned and asked why she was there. Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss also got involved ahead of the semifinal match in the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament that saw Dakota Kai and IYO SKY victorious.

During a backstage segment later in the night, Smackdown star Aliyah was being interviewed by Sarah Schreiber when Bayley, Dakota, and IYO once again made their presence known. When Bayley said that Aliyah must be stupid for showing up to Raw all alone, Trish Stratus appeared again to stand by her fellow Canadian as Aliyah challenged Bayley to a match.

Later on in the show, it was announced that another WWE Hall of Famer would be making a hometown Raw return next week as Kurt Angle is scheduled to appear in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. There’s no word yet on what Angle will be doing on the show, but if tonight was any indication, we could see multiple segments featuring the Olympic gold medalist.

Kurt Angle wrestled his final match in WWE at WrestleMania 35, where he lost to Baron Corbin.

Elsewhere on Monday Night Raw, Johnny Gargano made his return to the company nine months after saying a tearful goodbye to NXT back in December. Full results from the August 22nd episode of Raw can be found here.
