Kurt Angle has confirmed he will once again step into a WWE ring later this month as part of the Mixed Match Challenge.
The Raw general manager confirmed on Twitter that he will take the place of Enzo Amore, who missed this week's episode with flu, in the event, which will be screened on Facebook.
Angle was involved in several matches at the back end of last year, notably substituting for Roman Reigns in The Shield in the main event of the TLC pay-per-view and on the Raw team for Survivor Series.
Amore had been due to defend his Cruiserweight title against Cedric Alexander and left hospital to travel to the arena but was turned away by company officials.
WWE has also confirmed that former women's champion and Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix will undertake commentary duty for the competition.
The contest sees 12 competitors from each brand square off in mixed tag matches for the prize of $10,000 to the charity of their choice.
From the women's division, former world champions Sasha Banks and Bayley are scheduled to compete while star performer such as Braun Strowman and Shinsuke Nakamura will be part of the group selected from the men's roster.
