• Kurt Angle Confirms John Cena’s WrestleMania 35 Status
During a recent interview with The Gorilla Position, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about his farewell match this Sunday at WrestleMania 35 and how he wanted to face 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena in his final match.
Below is what Angle said:
“I was hoping it was gonna be John [Cena], but it didn’t happen. I’m sure that he has another match in mind, but I wanted him to end my career just like when he started I started his career. So it was a good little storyline, but unfortunately, it’s not gonna work out.
I love John and I know that he will have a WrestleMania match. I’m not sure if they’ve announced it yet, but I’m almost positive he’s gonna be there.”
