The decision of WWE to make Kurt Angle face Baron Corbin in his retirement t match at Wrestlemania 35 came as a big surprise and was criticised by many.

Unsurprisingly, Corbin also defeated Angle and still carries the tag of defeating the legend in his farewell match.  Match against someone like John Cena could have been a dream for Angle and he did throw this idea to Vince McMahon, who rejected it.

Kurt Angle revealed it to Collider Live in a recent interview with them. “When I asked to retire at last WrestleMania, I threw Cena out at Vince and Vince said ‘Listen you have a program that you’ve been doing for a year…I’m not throwing it away…it’s with Baron Corbin. So whether you want to retire here or whenever…you’re going to wrestle Baron at WrestleMania.’ I said ‘You know what that’s fair;'” he said.

Angle was involved in storylines with Corbin right from the day latter became deputy general manager. Angle was doing his job as general manager after making a comeback in 2017 but after a year, Stephanie McMahon appointed Corbin as his deputy.

Soon, these two took on each other in a number of matches and Corbin had the upper hand most of the times. In Angle’s retirement match, the legend decided to put Corbin over himself and lost.

On the next night of WrestleMania 35, Angle again did the best for business as Lars Sullivan made his debut on the main roster and attacked the veteran superstar. Kurt Angle now works in the backstage in WWE and has no plans to make a comeback. He was one of the WWE legends to take part in Raw reunion.

As far as Corbin is concerned, he continues to hog the limelight on the show but failed to win the title at Extreme Rules. With Brock Lesnar again winning the Universal championship, Corbin now might have to wait for long to come in the title picture.

Seth Rollins remains to be in contention to win the title and the former Universal champion will be facing Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam.
