• Final RAW Before WrestleMania 35 Ends With Rey Mysterio Being Defeated
As we noted earlier today, WWE cancelled Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio for unknown reasons. This was supposed to be Angle’s final RAW match.
WWE instead did Baron Corbin vs. Rey Mysterio in the main event of tonight’s RAW and Corbin ended up defeating Mysterio in this match.
After the match, Angle came out on the stage and made Corbin tap out to the Ankle Lock to end RAW.

This was quite a disappointing finish for the go-home edition of RAW for this Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 PPV.
