SmackDown saw a family reunion of sorts as Kurt Angle was brought together with his ‘son’ Jason Jordan on the show.
On SmackDown in Pittsburgh, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was in his hometown as he celebrated his birthday. The show saw Angle emerge in front of his adoring public but he was quickly cut off by Alpha Academy’s Otis and Chad Gable.
Angle left the ring but only to re-emerge with another Olympic gold medallist, Gable Steveson. A milk bath was the natural conclusion to the show as Angle doused Otis and Gable in Angle’s favourite drink.
That wasn’t the only surprise for Kurt Angle on the show as backstage the star was reunited with his on-screen son and current WWE producer Jason Jordan.

Ricochet and The New Day were successful in six-man tag team action against Imperium, The Viking Raiders defeated Legado del Fantasma, and in a tag team-heavy show, The Usos retained their WWE Tag Team Championship against Sheamus and Butch.
