Sadly, it’s true. It was announced tonight on Raw that Kurt Angle will be competing in his final match in WWE at Wrestlemania 35. He made the announcement in front of his hometown of Pittsburgh, where the show emulated from.
You can see a clip of the announcement below:
It is unknown at this time who his opponent will be.
All good things must come to an end. And while Kurt Angle held off Father Time longer than most, The Olympic Gold Medalist announced on Raw that he would be competing in his farewell match at this year’s WrestleMania. Who his opponent is remains to be seen, of course, but Angle kicked off his farewell tour on a positive note with a win over Apollo Crews — his last match, he noted, in his hometown of Pittsburgh.
Youth and speed were certainly on Crews’ side, but the intangibles that made Angle a natural in the ring have not faded one bit. The Olympic Hero dodged what would have been a match-ending frog splash from Crews, sprang up, and torqued in the Ankle Lock for a final hometown victory. Crews was, understandably, more than happy to raise Angle’s hand in victory: It’s not every day you share the ring with this particular legend, and the days in which you can say you have are officially numbered.
While I’m sad that this happening, only the person competing can decide when it’s time to hang it up. That being said, who should his opponent should be? Some names that were thrown around on social media tonight were John Cena, Jason Jordan, The Undertaker, Drew McIntyre and AJ Styles.
