As seen on Monday’s episode of RAW, Jason Jordan was revealed as the illegitimate son of Kurt Angle. Dave Meltzer discussed this on top on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and indicated that reason why WWE decided on this angle was a way for the company to push Jordan.
“It may help Jason Jordan — it may hurt him,” said Meltzer. “I’m gonna guess he was going nowhere, but you get that stigma. You see, now the problem is he was going nowhere slowly but now he has to be pushed. And if he doesn’t succeed on his push he’s gonna be one of those guys like Drew Galloway or you know, that was given the big push and didn’t succeed and then they’re kinda like screwed. Whereas he was gradually pushed — let’s put it this way it wouldn’t be like he’s a failure it’s a slow build thing. But now it’s like he’s gonna have to be pushed and if it doesn’t take things are gonna be regarded as a failure and we’ll see what happens.”
