She says she needs top people here to help her make these decisions, and that's why she has this next person working with her. And with that, Olympic gold medalist and RAW GM Kurt Angle makes his way down to the ring. Angle steps in the ring and begins to apologizing for SmackDown's assault on RAW two weeks ago, and Stephanie says she's not upset but she does want to know how The New Day got in the building last week.

They talk about Jason Jordan being added to Team RAW at Survivor Series, and Stephanie asks what accomplishments he has that qualify him for the team. Stephanie doesn't seem happy with Kurt's decision, and blames Kurt for costing RAW the chance to have John Cena. Stephanie says the fans believe in Kurt so she's going to give him one more chance. Stephanie asks Kurt what the first thing he'll do at Survivor Series is, and Kurt says he'll break Shane's ankle. Kurt says as team captain he's starting the match, and if Shane has any balls he'll start too. Stephanie says Kurt needs to get it through his skull that this isn't the 90's anymore and Shane won't start the match, he's going to let the others do the dirty work. Stephanie says Angle might have gone soft and can't even break anyone's ankle anymore. She continues to trash Angle, and it seems like she might be ready to fire him, but The Shield comes out to interrupt. They hit the ring and Ambrose says Angle is the best leader he's seen in WWE, and that Angle proved he's their leader and that he can still go in the ring. The fans chant "You still got it" and Stephanie is not happy. Stephanie starts trashing The Shield next, and Reigns asks where Stephanie has been for the last seven months since Triple H put her through a table. Reigns says they don't listen to Stephanie, they do what they want, and what they want is to fight The New Day at Survivor Series.
