What is Kurt Angle's big secret?

For weeks now, they've been running an angle on RAW with Corey Graves and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle about some mysterious text messages, emails, etc. that could potentially "ruin" Kurt Angle's career, life, and family. There's a lot of intrigue surrounding this angle and, with Dixie Carter recently appearing on the WWE Network as well as the fact that Kurt is going to reveal this secret on RAW this coming Monday night, which emanates from Nashville (where TNA Headquarters is and was located), there's a lot of people who think that this angle may be a way to get Dixie Carter on WWE TV.

There are so many different ways WWE could go with this whole thing. History has taught us that WWE can either greatly succeed with an angle or tank it in an instant. I think the most memorable time that WWE put so much effort into something so mysterious was the whole anonymous RAW General Manager angle and we all know how that ended up.

If it's something that will ruin Kurt both personally and professionally, that seems to suggest some sort of affair. Maybe it's with Dixie Carter or maybe it's *shudders* Stephanie McMahon. I also would not rule out the possibility of WWE booking an angle where Kurt comes out of the closet (though being gay would not ruin him professionally, I wouldn't think). I'm also intrigued by Corey Graves' involvement. How does he have this information? In any case, I thought it was worth making a special thread for so we can discuss what this secret might be.

Well Steph did say this year that she would love to start using LGBT storylines when/if it was appropriate. Seems weird that Corey is getting the same 'text messages' that Kurt is getting.

Oh god. You don't think that Corey is Angle's secret lover, do you? Surely they wouldn't do that.

I think it might somehow involve his brother and also occasional wrestler Eric Angle. He has appeared with Kurt before.

Have to admit, it crossed my mind at the end of Raw last week. However Dixie is pretty awkward on TV and she really wouldn't have the charisma to make it work. Plus what would the payoff of the storyline be?

I doubt WWE would risk any of their PG deals with a LGBT affair storyline.

I can't see them doing any kind of affair with Kurt to be honest, what would/could it lead to? I wonder if it could be something along the lines of having one 'final' match.

Couldn't he have continued his affair with Steph. I think that would be cool.

Well that reveal was...

Interesting?

Silly?

Head spinning?

All of those?

Also I am on mobile and can't figure out how to use spoiler tags so don't read on until you see raw.
















Does this mean AA tag team are splitting up? That sucks if so.

Have to admit, I wasn't expecting that!


Love Angle's face in the above pic :laugh:

Suppose there has always been that similarity with American Alpha and TWGTT/Team Angle. I guess Jordan needed the boost more than Gable, who I think will do fine on Smackdown.

It seems like WWE is having a clear out of their tag teams at the moment, first Enzo and Cass, now American Alpha and I can see Mojo/Zack going their separate ways in the near future too. NXT were killing with great tag team matches but that hasn't really progressed to the main shows yet.

To flip that around, I doubt any of the sponsors would risk being tarnished as anti-LGBT by commenting / acting negatively towards such a storyline.

Well who cares! We got some rubbish storyline instead. The only way I would be up for this is if it led to a new Team Angle thing going on. But tbh we could have got there some other way!

To go on further, maybe they would though. If there's a heel or authority figure oppressing a "LGBT character" then it might just do some damage. It's unfortunately a risk all around.

I'm not gonna be happy with this storyline until they reveal that Gable is also an illegitimate Angle spawn, and his secret kids have been a tag team this whole time without knowing they share the same Dad.

This storyline is already in ridiculous soap opera territory, so why not just go with it full tilt?

I have seen whispers that they are gonna do a big DNA Test reveal around start of next year.. Angle turns super bitter and sets up a match with them at WM. Which would be really cool to see if they go all in with this Jordan push.
