Kurt Angle Discusses Jason Jordan’s Push In WWE

During his recent podcast, Kurt Angle talked about Jason Jordan’s push in WWE prior to injury:

“I was excited because I wanted to pair up with Jason and Chad [Gable] when they were tag team partners. I wanted to wrestle and I wanted to be the world champion and have them be the tag team champions just like Team Angle. I thought it made a lot of sense and they decided that I was going to have an illegitimate son and they weren’t sure who it was going to be. They decided to pick Jason over Chad, I’m not sure why, it might have been a politically correct move.”

“I was happy, I was excited about it because Jason was improving. He was on his way to main event status until he hurt his neck, that’s when the program ended. I was stuck high and dry without a partner for the next WrestleMania [35] because that’s who I was going to wrestle was Jason.”
