If you haven’t already seen, Kurt Angle made one of the least inspired decisions in wrestling history by picking Baron Corbin as his opponent for his retirement match at WrestleMania.
Now, it’s fair to say a lot of people aren’t all that pleased about this. Angle’s wife Giovanna called the match “very underwhelming“, and fans from across the world have expressed their disappointment.
The response from the live audience was so negative that WWE quickly incorporated it into a storyline, with Michael Cole referencing the negative reaction on commentary.

But Kurt is still doing everything he can to put the match over, and has defended his choice.

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. #itstrue #wrestlemania35 #wwe #wrestling
I’m sorry Kurt. You’re great and all, but this is just the wrong match.
