Never did I ever think that this week on Raw would feature Kurt Angle bringing out a black man as his son. Did blackrasslin peak for the week?

Sasha Banks attacked Nia Jax

In what wasn't Bayley and Sasha vs. Alexa and Nia for the third week in a row, we got...Bayley vs. Alexa, with Sasha and Nia ultimately at ringside. Sasha was the difference maker, evening the score towards the end of the match.

Later in the show, Kurt Angle booked Bayley vs. Sasha Banks next week for the chance to take on Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's Championship.

Titus O'Neil hopped on the ring apron to stop a match

O'Neil figured Tozawa was getting his ass kicked and decided to get the match stopped instead of seeing Tozawa get ruined by a punk like Daivari...or something. I don't know, this moment fell flat IMO. It was weird to hear Tozawa scream "YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ME!" on the ramp; could they be ending this Titus Worldwide pairing already?

Jason Jordan made his Raw debut...as Kurt Angle's son

In the dumbest reveal ever, Kurt Angle revealed that some woman he smashed back in the day had a kid that she gave up for adoption. The kid ended up being Jason Jordan, which lowkey course corrects his IRL black daddy, although this might mean Jordan now has a black mom?

Maybe someone should've told Chad Gable, though?

Talking Smack might be dead, but Renee Young did have an interview with Jordan and Angle after the program. Looks like they're legit going with the "I'm adopted af," which might be the way they explain away the black daddy that was shown on Smackdown back in 2016.

This show was high-key lame for a number of reasons, but it also put a black man at the center of the conversation, so...win?
