For the first time in 12 years, Kurt Angle competed on Raw and all he had to do to pick up a win was beat Drew McIntyre.
In the main event of this week’s episode of Raw from Manchester, England, Angle was fighting for the opportunity to become the captain of the red brand’s men’s team at Survivor Series.
The match was originally set to be Baron Corbin versus Angle, but the acting GM fled off in limousine after being chased by Braun Strowman for most of the night.
To his credit, Angle came out firing on all cylinders and even attacked McIntyre before the opening the bell.
Then McIntyre took control of the match and almost never looked back.
Angle did mount a few brief rallies, including an Olympic Slam out of nowhere, but McIntyre kept proving to be too big and too strong for his opponent.
At one point McIntyre got overconfident and started mocking Angle before finding himself in Ankle Lock submission. The Scottish Psychopath would eventually power out and hit an Angle Slam of his own.
To add insult to injury McIntyre then subbed Angle with an ankle lock and got the former gold medalist to tap out in the center of the ring.
This got uncomfortable and sad very quickly.
Kurt Angle brought everything he had but it still was not remotely good enough to topple Drew McIntyre.
Where do Angle and McIntyre go after a great main event of Raw?
