Unpredictable! One word that defines the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Leading Team RAW into Survivor Series 2017, Kurt Angle was hopeful to lead his team to a win in the traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series interbrand elimination match between RAW versus SmackDown match. However, Kurt Angle did not get the last laugh. With Shane McMahon, team Captain of SmackDown, the only survivor of his team facing three RAW superstars, Braun Strowman, Triple H and Kurt Angle, all odds were stacked against Shane. However, after Kurt Angle locked Shane in the Angle Lock, Triple H did the unthinkable. He gave a Pedigree to Kurt Angle and let Shane eliminate Shane. However, when Strowman was the legal man in the ring to face Shane, Triple H tagged himself in the ring to pin Shane for the win and let RAW win this match. While Triple H was celebrating, Braun Strowman attacked Triple H for not letting him take the win with two running power slams. Now that Triple H seem to be back in in-ring competition, and with WrestleMania 33 around the corner, I wonder if Triple H can go one-one-one against Kurt Angle at the Grandest Stage of them all, WrestleMania.
Kurt Angle did verbally confront Triple H at the night following Survivor Series, on Monday, November 20, 2017, when he told Triple H never to attack him from the back or “he (Triple H) can take his job and shove it because I am coming for you!”
Kurt Angle and Triple H were key competitors during WWE’s Attitude Era days and have had a number of matches during the 1999 to 2002. It had been a privilege to watch these two in-ring competitors give their everything in the ring. However, now that Kurt Angle is back and with Angle and HHH both entering the part of their careers where the next move is to hang their wrestling gear for good, the fans would want to see Angle vs. HHH. However, also in the equation is Braun Strowman, who, many WWE fans, including me, want to see become the WWE Universal Champion. Why? Because Brock Lesnar is overrated. Now that HHH and Kurt Angle’s rivalry is heating up, one can expect them to face each other in over a decade in a pay-per-view. However, with superstars as huge as HHH and Angle, their rivalry’s exclamation point must come at WrestleMania 33. Will it happen? Only time will tell!
