In Ring Segment: Kurt Angle

Angle welcomes the crowd to the show. Before Angle can finish his thought, Sunil Singh walks out on the stage and introduces the newest member of Monday Night Raw, the United States Champion, Jinder Mahal. Mahal complains that he didn’t get to travel tot he arena via a motorcade. Angle says they never agreed to that. Mahal says he deserves what he asked for because he is better than anyone on Raw. Mahal says he deserves the same perks as Brock Lesnar. Angle basically tells Mahal no freaking way. If Mahal thinks he is better than everybody else than Mahal needs to prove it in the ring. Angle asks anyone in the back to come out because Mahal is defending the United States championship right now. Mahal goes nuts. Jeff Hary’s music hits.
