Kurt Angle

As reported earlier, Kurt Angle revealed Baron Corbin as his opponent for WrestleMania 35 in three weeks in what will be his retirement match.

The online reaction to the announcement was generally underwhelming.

Mike and Victoria Tedesco discussed this on last night’s Post-RAW #30, with Mike noting that even Angle was aware based on his mannerisms during his promo.

Angle took to Instagram to acknowledge that Corbin wasn’t a popular pick.

“My farewell match will be against Baron Corbin at Wrestlemania. I realize it’s not the most popular decision from a fan’s perspective… BUT I will make Corbin tap out on the biggest stage of them all…. and I Hope you can share this moment/accomplishment with me on April 7th. Baron is a legit tough guy. It won’t be easy but it never is.”
