Kurt Angle made a big announcement on this week’s episode of WWE Raw. He confirmed that Baron Corbin will be his final opponent in the WWE at Wrestlemania 35. Last week, he confirmed to have one last farewell match at the biggest event of the year. Now the opponent against him was also confirmed setting up the match lineup.

WWE legend to face Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 35?

Some of the fans were definitely not happy with this announcement. Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin is an underwhelming lineup especially considering it is happening at Wrestlemania. Furthermore, this match is the last one of Angle’s career where he should have received a proper send-off.

Even Kurt Angle’s wife opened up about this lineup disappointing her just after the announcement came on WWE Raw. So the current news is that WWE might just go on to change the lineup and give the fans what they want. A true Wrestlemania caliber matchup should be waiting for him when the show of show emanates.

Sports journalist Justin Laber hinted that a bigger name to face off against the Olympic Gold medalist and thereby giving him a fitting farewell. The source could not confirm who the opponent would be for the former WWE Raw general manager. But he should be a marquee name matching up to Wrestlemania level.

Here’s more from the source,

“Baron Corbin vs Kurt Angle isn’t going to be Angle’s Mania retirement match. Saying Corbin vs Angle is to get people to appreciate the actual match they will get. They will remove Corbin just like they did him as GM.”

“The match isn’t going to happen. They will remove Corbin on the basis of fans are displeased and do just what they did when they removed Corbin from the GM role. They will reward everyone with the big match.”

As clarified by the source, WWE would remove Baron Corbin from this match just like they did during his tenure as the acting GM of Monday Night Raw. However, there are conflict reports as well which claimed that Baron Corbin vs. Kurt Angle is the original lineup for Wrestlemania. WWE was aware of negative reactions after the announcement and they went forward with it, knowingly.

Ever since the announcement of Kurt Angle farewell match happened, big names were in speculations to be his challenger. Names like Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Rey Mysterio, and John Cena were in the list. Even The Undertaker was also under speculation. We’ll see whether anyone from them takes Corbin’s place when Raw airs, next week.
