Kurt Angle Discusses Facing Baron Corbin in his Retirement Match, if he’ll Wrestle Again


WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently did an interview with Wrestling Inc.’s Andy Malnoske where he spoke about a wide range of topics including if he plans to wrestle again and why it was the right call for him to wrestle Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in his retirement match. Here are the highlights:

On his retirement match:

“I don’t think it’s the match that I hoped for, I think it was the match that should have happened,” Angle said. “Baron and I had been doing a program for a year now. I decided that I wanted to retire at WrestleMania, so I kind of put Vince McMahon in a position. What does he do? Does he go with Baron Corbin—who I was supposed to go with—or do we change it up to John Cena, AJ Styles, or whoever else. It wasn’t really anyone’s fault, it was just the timing was Baron Corbin and it was the right decision.”

Possibly wrestling again:

“I don’t plan on wrestling again,” Angle admitted. “If something comes about, maybe my son, Jason Jordan, comes back and wants me to tag with him, maybe. But for the most part, I’m good. My body, I put it through hell the last twenty years. I know how I feel now and I know I want to have a quality of life after wrestling. Want to be able to play with my kids and hold them. I’m 50 years old, I’ve been wrestling amateur and pro for the last 45 years, so it’s time for me to step down.”
