Raw GM Kurt Angle added to WWE Live

It’s true, it’s damn true! For the first time in 11 years, Kurt Angle returns to New Zealand.

The Raw General Manager will oversee all the action when WWE Live comes to Christchurch on Wednesday, September 13.

Angle was last in New Zealand in March 2006 for the Road to WrestleMania 22 event at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium.

“This has been one of the most enthusiastic countries we’ve been to,” Angle told NZPWI in 2006. “I’ve been all over the world, but this is one of the most enthusiastic countries. The fans have been really excited, they really appreciate what we do. They’re watching our shows every week, and we’re very grateful for that.”

Angle went on to retain his World Heavyweight Championship in a triple threat against Mark Henry and The Undertaker.

Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the WrestleMania 33 weekend earlier this year, Angle returns to New Zealand as the Raw General Manager, ready to oversee some big match-ups.

Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns clash in a Street Fight, while a Battle Royal determines who will challenge The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
