Giovanna later deleted this tweet and then tweeted the following:
Guys, it's pro wrestling. Its like watching a movie. I'm no way upset with my husband wrestling Corbin. Lol I love having fun with yall. But It is really nice to see how many fans support Kurt on how he should be sent off. ❤ #AllLove

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. It looks like the result is going to be the same this time as well as Angle will put a young talent over on his way out.
