Triple H Returns To Raw, Announces Himself As Fifth Team Member At Survivor Series

Jason Jordan has been sidelined, with The Game taking his place.

WWE unveiled a major shock with regard to the Survivor Series card, as Triple H returned to Raw, Pedigreed Jason Jordan, and revealed himself as the fifth member of the brand's team.

The pay per view takes place this Sunday (November 19th), and the men's elimination match will now see The Game join forces with Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, and Braun Strowman. They'll take on a SmackDown quintet consisting of Shane McMahon, John Cena, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Bobby Roode.

Jason Jordan was originally scheduled to be the fifth member of the team, as last week he persuaded storyline father Angle to pick him. That was undone this week, as he was supposedly injured by Bray Wyatt towards the start of the show.

Later, Stephanie McMahon demanded that Kurt remove his own son from the team and announce a replacement. When Angle stalled, Triple H made a surprise return and revealed himself to be the new Team Raw member. He then hit Jordan with a Pedigree.

This is the first time Triple H has been seen on a main roster show since losing to Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 33. He's appeared at various WWE Live events (even as an unofficial Shield member), and was present for the finals of the Mae Young Classic, but has stayed well away from main roster storylines until now.

This surprising turn of events could have major implications going forwards. Most notably, it could lead to a future showdown between Angle and Triple H (perhaps at WrestleMania 34) - a match that was speculated upon when Kurt first returned as Raw GM.

Equally, it casts doubt upon the future direction of Jason Jordan. It was assumed that his position as the GM's son would lead to some form of tension, perhaps with other wrestlers accusing Kurt of nepotism, or even friction between Angle and Jordan themselves. Now it's even less clear what will happen regarding the former American Alpha member, although a revenge run-in at Survivor Series could be one outcome.
