For those of you wondering if WWE is planning a swerve for Kurt Angle’s retirement match, I have some bad news for you.
PWInsider is reporting that Baron Corbin is the planned opponent for Angle and it was not meant to be a swerve that would lead to someone else. Many fans are hoping for John Cena but that seems unlikely right now unless Vince McMahon decides to take the fans’ concerns into consideration.
Obviously, Corbin was picked by McMahon and not Angle. The word going around is that Angle wanted a higher-profile name for his farewell match. I was told that he did not know who he would be facing until he got to Raw on Monday.
There’s still a couple of weeks left before WrestleMania so there is still time to make a change and maybe that can happen if the fans are vocal enough about it like they were about Kofi Kingston.
