Earlier today, WWE announced that Monday Night Raw General Manager Kurt Angle will be making his in-ring return at TLC.

Angle will be replacing Roman Reigns at the event and will team up with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to face Braun Strowman, Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus and Kane in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs 5-on-3 Handicap Match.

This will be the first WWE match for the Olympic Gold Medallist in more than 11 years.

The heart of the matter

The news of Kurt Angle’s in-ring return has broken the internet. Reactions have been flooding in from all corners of the world and a good portion of the fans are still in disbelief.

A string of WWE superstars have also reacted to the news and the tweet from McIntyre reveals how the NXT roster processed the whole situation.

What’s next?

The 2017 edition of TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs is set to take place at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 22, 2017. The in-ring return of Angle is clearly one of the major attractions of the pay-per-view.

Apart from the addition of Angle, WWE has also announced a match between Finn Balor and AJ Styles for Sunday night. Elsewhere, the WWE Raw Women’s championship and WWE Cruiserweight Championships matches will also be on offer at the event.


Author’s Take

There is a clear sense of excitement across the wrestling world about Angle’s match at TLC. McIntyre’s tweet indicates that this excitement is not confined to the fans as wrestlers are ‘melting down’ as well. Nevertheless, the late addition of Angle has given WWE a huge boost ahead of TLC which happens this Sunday night.
