Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon named Baron Corbin the Acting General Manager of Raw
With a full-time, fighting champion back in the fold, Kurt Angle is feeling pretty good about things, even going so far as to tell Paul Heyman he’ll give Brock Lesnar his Universal Title rematch more or less when he feels like it (for the record, Lesnar’s preference is at WWE Hell in a Cell). Unfortunately, Angle wasn’t at attentive as he maybe should have been with his new Raw Women’s Champion, and Stephanie McMahon wasn’t happy about it.
Between allowing Baron Corbin to get beaten down by Bobby Lashley and failing to prevent Ronda Rousey from attacking Stephanie, Angle ended the show with the rest of Raw’s governing body firmly against him. And for the first time, those ever-present threats against Angle’s job were finally turned into action when Stephanie told Angle she was giving him a “vacation” to ostensibly recharge his batteries, promoting Corbin to Acting General Manager in the meantime.
