According to PWInsider, Angle wanted a high profile farewell match at WrestleMania 35 (which would’ve been against someone like John Cena or The Undertaker), but it looks like WWE has better plans for Cena and Taker.
Angle & Corbin have faced off in singles matches before as well and Corbin beat Angle in those matches.
