They later lost the titles to The Usos on the March 21, 2017 edition of SmackDown.

Kurt Angle's son (2017–present)
On the July 17, 2017, episode of Raw, Jordan was revealed to be the son of Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, following Angle coming clean after a series of mystery text messages were sent to his work phone and to Corey Graves from the announce team. Jordan was moved to Raw, thus disbanding American Alpha. The following week on Raw, in his first match for the brand, he defeated Curt Hawkins. On the July 31 Raw, Jordan was a guest on Miz TV. After a verbal dispute, Jordan attacked The Miz, with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex into Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas. The following week on Raw, Jordan quickly defeated a local competitor.

On the September 18 edition of Raw, Jordan won a Six-Pack Challenge to become #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship. However, at No Mercy, Jordan was unsuccessful in capturing the title following outside interference from Axel and Dallas. At TLC, Jordan defeated Elias. On the October 23 episode of Raw, Jordan defeated Elias again in a rematch by disqualification, after Elias hit Jordan with his guitar. Later that night, the SmackDown roster invaded Raw, Jordan was immediately attacked by his former tag team partner, Chad Gable and then by other SmackDown superstars. During the November 7 edition of Raw, Jordan defeated Elias in a Guitar On A Pole match after retrieving Elias' prized guitar and smashing it across Elias' back.
