Kurt Angle was among the WWE cutbacks on April 15th. Now he’s coming back for at least one night.

Angle is going to be on hand this week during NXT. He will officiate the Matt Riddle vs Timothy Thatcher cage match. That match can only end in KO or submission.

BREAKING: @RealKurtAngle will serve as the special guest referee for @SuperKingofBros and Timothy Thatcher’s #CageFight this Wednesday night on #WWENXT!

Angle was very happy about this announcement. He tweeted out: “I’m coming to WWE NXT next week. #itstrue.”


This is likely a one-off appearance for Kurt Angle. You can never say never in WWE. He is certainly a big name that could pop a rating.

Next week’s episode of WWE NXT will feature (so far…):

  • Io Shirai & Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair & Mystery Partner
  • Jake Atlas vs Drake Maverick vs KUSHIDA
  • Matt Riddle vs Timothy Thatcher – Cage Match (Kurt Angle as Special Referee)
