Many believe that Kurt Angle facing opponents like Samoa Joe and AJ Styles is WWE’s way to compensate for the unpopular choice of his WrestleMania opponent in Baron Corbin.
However, if we believe Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio then this is not the case and these opponents have not been chosen by WWE.
According to Meltzer, it’s Angle himself who has handpicked these last few opponents to be part of his farewell tour before his retirement match at WrestleMania.
Though as we noted before, the opponent which the Gold Medalist didn’t get to chose is Baron Corbin, who WWE has picked for him to face at the Show Of Shows.
Kurt Angle is currently scheduled to face Rey Mysterio in his last Raw match next week and he will then go on to challenge Corbin at WrestleMania next month.
