• Kurt Angle Reveals His Original Retirement Match
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle revealed that his original retirement match was scheduled to be against Jason Jordan at WrestleMania 34.
However, that match couldn’t happen due to Jordan’s neck injury. Vince McMahon then wanted Angle to be a wrestler for another year and Angle then ended up retiring at WrestleMania 35.
Below is what Angle said:
“Yeah, it would have been [my retirement match]. Vince [McMahon] wanted me to go another year.
For the most part, yes Jason [Jordan] would have been my last match and it would have made sense. I adore that kid. He’s so talented and you know he got a lot of heat for being my son and he played the part great that’s why people hated him.
He was being a spoiled brat about everything. He was using me to get what he wanted. It was a great…Vince was great with that.
A lot of fans really did hate him just like Baron Corbin. A lot of people don’t think that’s good, but I think that’s really good. He was really good in the ring, really good.”
