The of general manager Monday Night Raw Kurt Angle recently interviewed with CBS Sports Podcast ‘In This Corner’. In the interview, Kurt talked about the story that involves him and WWE superstar Jason Jordan. According to Kurt, Vince McMahon knew that the WWE universe would not accept Jordan, and so far, everything goes as he had imagined.
“You know what’s crazy? Everything that the fans have gone through the last three or four months, most of the fans can’t stand him,” Angle said. “A lot of the fans are saying, ‘He’s getting the wrong kind of heat because we really don’t like him for real.’
“Everything that has occurred up until now, Vince [McMahon] already knew how they were going to react, so this has been working. As many fans will say ‘it’s not working’ and ‘get rid of him’ or ‘I’m not buying it,’ now that the storyline has started to span out and developing further, it was a good fit. Jason is doing a great job, and he has carried the storyline very well. We will see where it goes from here but it should be pretty intriguing.”
In addition, the general manager spoke about the progress of Jason Jordan in recent months.
“[Jordan] is developing every single week. He’s getting better and better, and his promos and pre-tapes are getting better and better. His in-ring ability — I said this before and I will say it again — he has got to be in the top three or the top five in-ring performers from an athletic standpoint right now today. A lot of people would disagree with me but continue to watch him and see what he can do and you will see what I’m talking about here in the future.”
