In a plot twist straight out of a soap opera, wrestling legend and Raw general manager Kurt Angle announced from the ring that American Alpha’s Jason Jordan is his long-lost son and the newest member of Raw on Monday night. The two embraced on the stage after teasing the reveal last week.

Angle previewed the announcement as life-changing and potentially life-shattering but from the ring said, “I’m happy to say that my family is 100 percent supportive of this.” Angle is married with five children in real life.

As the story goes, Angle had a relationship with a girl in college who gave birth to a baby boy, unbeknownst to Angle, nine months after their “last date.” The boy grew up to become a three-sport athlete in high school and was even drafted to play baseball. Instead, he pursued his dream to become a WWE superstar.

Angle then introduced his son, Jason Jordan, as the newest member of the Raw team. Jordan came out onto the stage and into the ring where the two embraced in a long hug. Angle, with tears in his eyes, showed off his son to the cheering fans.

Later in the episode, Jordan and Angle sat down for an interview, in which Jordan explained how he found his father.

After finding out he was adopted, Jordan hired a private investigator to track down his birth mother, which he did. Then after arranging and having a phone conversation, Jordan’s birth mother revealed to her son that his father was none other than wrestling superstar Kurt Angle.

“When she told me [who my birth father was] I was shocked and excited,” Jordan said in the interview, as Angle smiled on. “I mean, come on! I mean, seriously? Kurt Angle is my dad?”

“The thing is, Jason and I just need to get to know each other more, we just came together tonight,” Angle added. “This has been a long night for both of us. I just want to make sure he doesn’t make the same mistakes I made. I want to be a father to him.”

WWE Raw airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on the USA Network.
