Kurt Angle issues statement on retirement match at WrestleMania 35

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has issued a statement on his retirement match at WrestleMania 35, which is the biggest event of the year for the WWE.

He made the announcement on Monday’s episode of Raw in Pittsburgh, PA at the PPG Paints Arena and then beat Apollo Crews in a singles match, which marked his final match in front of his hometown crowd.

Angle, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all-time, wrote the following on his official Instagram account:

“I want to thank my hometown, Pittsburgh, for the incredible reception I received on Raw last night. I couldn’t think of a better place to announce my retirement. Thanks to @apollowwe for stepping in the ring with me for my final match in Pittsburgh. It’s on to Wrestlemania, and regardless who my opponent is, I feel like I’ve already won my farewell match, because I know that every WWE fan will be cheering for me. I’m very grateful for the amazing career I’ve had, but it’s time for me to step down and move on. Wrestlemania will be a very emotional night for me, but I will enjoy every second of it. Thank you WWE Universe. #itstrue.”

As of this writing, his opponent at this show has yet to be announced. WWE will hold WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium and be broadcasted on their streaming service, WWE Network.
