Kurt Angle announces retirement match at Wrestlemania

Kurt Angle’s career is coming to an end and on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW in his hometown of Pittsburgh, he addressed the crowd about his future in WWE.

The WWE universe cheered him on and did his signature ”you suck” chants in respect. Kurt Angle came out to make the announcement in his ring gear.

He spoke about winning an Olympic Gold Medal with a “broken freakin’ neck” after leaving Pittsburgh 23 years ago. He said that he always considered Pittsburgh his hometown, no matter where he went.

Angle revealed that WrestleMania will be the last match of his career. He had one more match in Pitsburg before his final match at Wrestlemania. His opponent was Apollo Crews, whom he beat on this week’s RAW.

We will have to wait and see who Kurt Angle’s final opponent will be at Wrestlemania.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    It didn’t hurt John Cena one bit when he got cream by the Undertaker last year so losing to Kurt Angle would not be a big deal. John Cena is basically retire from WWE.

    That actually books quite well. Match doesn’t mean anything, but crowd gets a big pop when both Angle wins AND Cena loses.

  • Sparti Love

    Angle vs Shamrock: Ankle Lock vs Ankle Lock.. Book it

  • Rajah

    Open challenge at WM and Cena comes out. He started with Cena, let him finish with him.

  • Darrin Tyler

    Knew this for 2 months. Just don’t know who it will be. Hope its am older wrestler maybe someone that hasn’t shown up in years.

  • Yespage

    AJ Styles would be nice. I can’t imagine it’ll be a perfect opponent.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    I just hope it’s somebody good for his final ever match, not some mediocre talent that we’ll forget the next month.

    I’d say if he’s not booked then Angle vs McIntyre would be great but after what we saw on Raw I reckon we’ll have some sort of Ambrose vs McIntyre match at mania (assuming we don’t have a tag match)

    Another one I think would be great would be Angle vs Johnny Gargano in terms of match quality
