• “It does hurt” – Kurt Angle On Comparing His Retirement Match To Batista’s Retirement Match
During a recent edition of The Kurt Angle Show, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle compared his retirement match against Baron Corbin to Batista’s retirement match against Triple H, both of which took place at WrestleMania 35.
Triple H vs. Batista lasted for 25 minutes, while Angle vs. Corbin only lasted 6 minutes, and Angle isn’t happy about this.
Here’s what Angle said:
“It does hurt, but, like I said before, you understand your role in the company at that time.
You understand the position of your match, you know, they were a featured match, and if they wanted more time, they were going to get it; and obviously, they were going to cut my time.
That’s just the way it is, and that’s the way it will continue to be.
I just felt like, with my status, that I would be treated a little bit differently, but I understand. I did what I was told to do.
I made my retirement match at WrestleMania, I did the honors by doing the job, and I put Baron Corbin over so that he continued on to get to the main event status.
So, I did my job, and that’s all I can ask for.”
