The comparisons between American Alpha and Team Angle have always existed. However, Kurt Angle himself has revealed that WWE nixed plans for a New Team Angle.
During his recent Q&A Session, Angle talked about pitching the idea of American Alpha joining him. However, Angle revealed that Jason Jordan’s injured derailed that idea. Here is the quote:
“I brought it up and they kind of let it go by the wayside. I kept reminding them and I think they would have eventually done it. I think I would have managed both Gable and Jordan but Jordan ended up getting injured.
When he got injured, I think the idea fell apart through the table and there was no other, you know, other wrestler (to fill the spot). Just managing one wrestler wouldn’t be a team, so you have to manage at least two wrestlers to make it a team. Since Jason got injured, I think that fell by the wayside and it wasn’t going to happen. I wish it would have, though.”
Jason Jordan would be revealed as the illegitimate son of Kurt Angle in storyline in 2017. However, a serious injury has kept Jordan sidelined since early 2018.
