Drew McIntyre and Kurt Angle battled it out in the main event of RAW with the stipulation being that if Angle wins, he will lead the RAW team at Survivor Series. However, McIntyre emerged victorious after executing Angle’s moves and destroyed the hopes of the Olympic Gold Medalist to lead the team.
As per Sports Illustrated, Kurt Angle met with Vince McMahon to plot the match story and then proceeded to reveal the creative plans to McIntyre.
Angle and McIntyre have quite the past from their days with TNA. Before departing the company, Angle reportedly requested one more match to put McIntyre over. The last bout between them in TNA took place at Manchester, the same city as the last episode of RAW.
Despite not being the captain of the red brand, Kurt Angle is speculated to be added to the team on the go-home episode of RAW. As far as McIntyre is concerned, this is apparently a start to a major push that will see him get elevated, with the creative team having huge plans for the star in 2019.
