Kurt angle's forced leave of absence as the Raw GM is so he can train to get back in the ring. Whether it's part time or full time isn't known yet

Ugh Kurt. You're my favorite wrestler of all time. But stay retired. Too many injuries

On the other side, Kurt's bastard son Jason Jordan may have to retire ring due to his neck injury. He has been learning the ropes as a producer

So the father comes back and the son may have to retire

Seriously speaking, that's a shame for Jordan if it turns out that way
But like Corey Graves before him, they are preparing him for another role, though less glamorous than being an announcer

That's a shame. Jordan really had a long road with WWE. NXT for 5 years, finally catching on with American Alpha where others might've been released long before then. The start-and-stop push on the main roster lead to a sudden split, putting him in the joke role as Angle's son and became the mid-card version of Roman Reigns (minus selling merchandise).

Jordan had the look and was very good in the ring

Gable was great in the ring and was muscular (but at 5 foot 8, he didnt have the look of the 6 foot 3 Jordan)

Neither are good on the mic.  Though Jordan did play the whiny part well.  why dad?   I think they would have eventually turned him heel as part of the story line.  But then he got hurt

But I was surprised when they pulled the plug on them as a team.

Y'know, if Gable's the right weight, he could actually benefit from a career revival by going to "205 Live".

I figured he was about 210. Google says 203

Yep he'd help the brand. And get a push

There's no excuse to not have Tyler Breeze there either, specially with Fandango out for 8-10 months minimum.

He's billed at 212. I would've guessed 200 max.

Doubt they'd put Almas on 205 live. But he's billed at 210

Breeze is as big as Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy. That's definitely a gimmicked weight.
