WWE has announced Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe for tonight’s Raw television show. There is no mention of Joe’s U.S. Championship being on the line. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: There’s also no explanation offered for Joe crossing over from Smackdown to Raw. Joe is also advertised for tonight’s WWE Smackdown live event in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Angle will face Joe tonight and AJ Styles on Tuesday’s Smackdown in what feels like a best of TNA doubleheader.
