WWE Universe received a shocking news of Kurt Angle getting back to action at the TLC PPV, out of nowhere. He replaced Roman Reigns who is suffering from viral infection. In the main event of the night, the Raw General Manager will team up with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins against The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Kane and Braun Strowman.
Now while we all are gearing up for the much-anticipated comeback for the former Olympian to in-ring action, we should remember that the odds are stacked against Kurt Angle’s team. First of all, the match itself is a 3-on-5 handicapped match. Secondly, Strowman himself is capable of the taking on three opponents. Thirdly, Kane will also be there to make things the worst.
On the other hand, Kurt Angle is not a regular wrestler. He is getting ready to return to a WWE ring after 11 long years. So, despite him being the agilest in-ring athlete of all time, there are some doubts about his current condition.

So, the monster among men did not hesitate while giving a strong message to Kurt Angle. Once WWE Universe went for the global trend for TLC marking an in-ring return for the former world champion, Strowman is the one who might have declared the truth of the current situation. He posted a video on Twitter quoting that he will make Angle suffer for coming out of retirement. This is his actual quote:
“Kurt Angle it’s been 11 years since you stepped foot inside a WWE ring. This Sunday at TLC, I promise you… you’ll wish you never step foot in a WWE ring again.”

However, Kurt Angle seems not to lose his aggression a bit despite not being a regular performer. He replied back to Strowman stating,
“You better have a gameplan, Braun. Angry people tend to forget what THIS is all about… winning. #itsdamntrue”
The last time we have seen the 2017 Hall of Famer competing in a WWE ring was in 2006 at an ECW show. He competed against Sabu before leaving the company and then heading to GFW then known as TNA Wrestling. It will be interesting to see whether he can be a suitable replacement for the Big Dog at TLC.
