11 months ago By Sports Desk

A renowned figure in wrestling, Legend Dutch Mantell, Suggests WWE executives consider incorporating Kurt Angle into an NXT Storyline.

Gable Steveson’s WWE In-Ring Debut: Olympic Gold Medalist’s Start Mirrors Kurt Angle’s Path

Drawing a Parallel with Angle, Olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling and NXT newcomer, Gable Steveson, initiated his WWE in-ring journey on July 30. The 23-year-old marked his debut at The Great American Bash, engaging in a six-minute contest against Baron Corbin which ultimately concluded in a double count-out.

Insights from Dutch Mantell on Angle’s Potential Return

In a segment titled “Story Time with Dutch Mantell,” the seasoned booker elucidated the rationale behind Angle’s potential return:

“If the simple acknowledgment of Gable Steveson’s name in conjunction with Kurt Angle is occurring, that represents a noteworthy progression.”. WWE’s approach would likely be, ‘Kurt, return to guide this young talent for a brief period, perhaps a month or two. Attend TV events, collaborate with him, and subsequently feature in select pay-per-view appearances to elevate his status.'”

A Previous Interaction between Steveson and Angle

Notably, on the December 9, 2022, episode of SmackDown, Steveson shared a segment with Angle. This encounter involved the Olympic champions playfully drenching Chad Gable and Otis from Alpha Academy in milk to celebrate Angle’s birthday.

Dutch Mantell’s Perspective on Steveson’s Rivalry with Baron Corbin

Although positioned as a protagonist, Gable Steveson faced an unexpected response at The Great American Bash, encountering boos from the audience. Notably, during the match, fans chanted in support of Corbin, vocalizing “Let’s go, Corbin!”

According to Dutch Mantell, Aligning with Angle Could Transform Steveson’s Reception

Mantell believes that Steveson stands to gain immense popularity simply by sharing proximity with Kurt Angle. Moreover, he contends that the astute NXT fans possess knowledge about Corbin’s challenges on the main roster, which has earned him newfound respect.

Steveson’s Recent Appearance on RAW and the Contemplation of Angle’s Return

In an untelevised appearance on August 7 during RAW, Steveson’s attack on Dolph Ziggler was met with cheers from his hometown crowd in Minnesota. This event further fuels the speculation around Kurt Angle’s potential return as Steveson’s ally.
