This past Monday on Raw, Kurt Angle revealed that he in fact has an illegitimate son. It turned out that his son is former NXT and Smackdown Tag Team Champion, Jason Jordan.
This reveal has already had its fair share of critics. It is a textbook ‘Attitude Era’ style storyline, and one that is at its core very silly. However, we are not yet privvy to information about where this angle could be headed, so passing judgement is a bit premature at this stage.
One man whose opinion holds stronger than most is the legendary ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, and he seems to be keeping an open mind to it.
The Texas Rattlesnake had this to say on his latest podcast:
I like the fact that they are shooting a hell of a big angle. They got a lot of negative responses but hey man, it was a big-time response seemingly from everybody. Big time angle, lot of rub for the kid. He’s a good-looking guy, read about him when I was coming over here to talk to you on the podcast. Outstanding credentials as an amateur, could possibly have a bright future ahead of him and if it is done off the back of this angle, more power to the kid, good luck to him.
Is this leading to a betrayal of Kurt’s trust or somebody trying to set him up to oust him from his position? And will it result in Kurt Angle returning to the ring to wrestle at a big-time Pay-Per-View?
Where do you see this storyline heading? Is Jason Jordan a future World champion?
