A lot has changed in WWE after Vince McMahon's resounding farewell, who decided to step aside last July. His right-hand man John Laurinaitis - former head of talent relations - has also been banned from the Stamford federation due to some inappropriate behavior.
Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. The 14-time world champion wasted no time and brought some of NXT's talents to the main roster, as well as bringing several released stars back to the company.
On the night between Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 November, Survivor Series: WarGames will be staged. The Survivor Series, along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam are considered the 'Big Four' of the WWE. In the latest edition of his now famous show, Kurt Angle praised Triple H's choice to make some changes to this historic PPV.
Kurt Angle on the 2022 Survivor Series
“Survivor Series is one of the most important pay-per-views on the WWE calendar, but it has never delivered such great twists. It's not as thrilling as WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam” - confided Kurt Angle.
“The world title is not up for grabs and it is hard to find a stake in the various matches. Triple H's idea of âârestoring the WarGames seemed very appropriate to me, although we will have to wait for the actual feedback from the public.
I'm sure the fans will have a lot of fun and it's right that WWE does what people love” - he added. The former Olympic gold medalist also reflected on the future of Randy Orton: “A lot of people don't realize it, but it's the back that controls everything.
You can't do anything if your back is blocked. The Viper had to stop due to back pain and it is not known when she will be back in the ring. It is hoped that this surgery will save his career, but there are no guarantees." During his recent podcast episode, Kurt Angle claimed that Seth Rollins had proven to be the modern-day Shawn Michaels.
"You know what? It's not too much of a leap to say that he is the next Shawn Michaels. I believe he will be eventually. He is not there yet because Shawn put in a lot more years. So you know, 30-something years. He does remind me of Shawn because everybody he wrestles, he has five-star matches with.
I mean, when you have that kind of chemistry with everyone, you're an incredible performer. And I think Seth Rollins is a lot like Shawn Michaels."
