WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has admitted that he wishes he would’ve won his last match inside of the squared circle.
Despite the fact that many fans expressed interest in seeing him take on a number of WWE stars including former WWE Champion John Cena for his farewell match at WrestleMania 35, WWE had other plans. Thus, Angle ended up losing to Baron Corbin at the WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium.
Angle took part in a Q&A session on his Facebook page and during it, he noted that he would have rather won this match but believes his job as a veteran superstar is to help the younger stars
“Honestly? My Wrestlemania 35 match. I would have liked to go out with a win, but I understand why it didn’t occur,” he said. “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 honors for a younger talent. I did that. I would have loved to have won, but I don’t think I would have properly played my role if I did. You leave the company better than it was before you came.”
