In a surprising move, NXT announced that WWE legend Kurt Angle would enter the cage to enforce the law when Matt Riddle and TimothY Thatcher deal with it this Wednesday. Angle is no stranger to the role of special arbiter, but has also been listed as one of the many talents abandoned by WWE due to the pandemic lockup. It’s unclear if Angle will come for a one-time appearance or if it means WWE has readjusted its books.

The man himself offers no clue as to his situation, only a quick slogan and confirmation. Given that cage fighting will likely draw on Riddle’s mixed martial arts community, Angle seems to be the perfect man to be in the middle of the action in any case.
