Kurt Angle & Stephanie McMahon In-Ring Segment: 

The entire Monday Night Raw locker room is on the stage. Usually, Angle comes out with a smile on his face, but last week Shane McMahon took what he thought was friendly competition and took it too far. Angle wants to apologize because he let his friendship with Shane get in the way. He put everyone in harm’s way and that will never happen again. Stephanie McMahon comes out to interrupt Angle. Stephanie wants Angle to lighten up.

She brings up the 25th anniversary of Raw that will be occurring in  January. Stephanie has supported the decision to make Kurt Angle the general manager of Raw. Even with the illegitimate child situation, the viral infection spreading through the locker room, and Braun Strowman being compacted in a garbage truck.  Angle had earned her respect, until he let her brother Shane put Raw under siege.

It takes 20 years to earn a reputation and 20 seconds to lose it. Stephanie is not here for his excuses. Shane lost at Hell in a Cell to defend his family’s honor and he didn’t get the job done.  Shane wanted to bully his little sisters show.  Angle’s kindness is his weakness. Stephanie tells to Angle to add incompetence to the Three I’s. Kurt Angle will be the team captain of Raw at Survivor Series. If Team Raw doesn’t win, she’ll find a new general manager. Oh it’s true, it’s damn true.
