Kurt Angle lost his farewell match to Baron Corbin at WWE WrestleMania 35 last Sunday.
Even though many fans wanted to see Angle face-off against John Cena in his final bout in WWE – both men have a boatload of ruthless and aggressive history behind them, of course – WWE stuck with the former United States Champion and Money In The Bank holder for the match.
Angle recently hosted a Q & A on his Facebook page and explained why he lost a match many people thought he would win before taking on Cena: “I would have liked to go out with a win, but I understand why it didn’t occur.
“Many people believe that I should have had a different opponent. Maybe. Maybe not. But my argument as to why it should have been Corbin is pretty strong. As a HOFer and Legend in WWE, I came to my final match last Sunday. It was my retirement match. As a legend or HOFer or- whatever you want to call me, my job is to leave the WWE by doing the honours for a younger talent. I did that.”
