WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle made a heroic return to Raw in his hometown of Pittsburgh. When he refused to accept a special one-night offer to join The Alpha Academy, however, Chad Gable and Otis took exception. Before the confrontation became volatile, though, The Street Profits emerged to stand with The Olympic Gold Metallist. Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford proposed a tag team match with their adversaries. In response, Gable & Otis would only agree to the contest if a win by them meant Angle would be forced to join them.
In the match that followed, Dawkins knocked Otis over the announce table. The Street Profits then used their incredible tag team prowess to gain the advantage on Gable, paving the way for Ford to deliver an incredible Splash off the top rope for the win.
In the aftermath, Kurt treated the victorious tandem to a refreshing serving of milk.
