Kurt Angle has an opponent for his farewell match.
During the episode of Tonight's Raw, it was announced that Angle would face Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35. Angle had to pick his opponent in the screenplay and said that although there was a lot of people he wants to face, Corbin is the only person he wants to fight.
As part of his farewell tour, Angle defeated Chad Gable on Raw tonight. Corbin came out after and made a promo on how he will dominate his match against Angle at WrestleMania.
Angle announced on Raw last week that he would be playing his last match at WrestleMania. His program with Corbin goes back several months. Corbin replaced Angle as an authority figure on the screen for Raw before the McMahon took over.
WrestleMania 35 will be held April 7 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Here is the updated map:
