• Kurt Angle Was Originally Scheduled To Lose Twice At WrestleMania 35
As seen at WrestleMania 35, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle ended his career with a clean loss to “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin.
According to The Dirty Sheets, Angle was originally scheduled to lose twice at WrestleMania 35.
WWE officials decided to have Corbin beat Angle by cheating. This would’ve then led to John Cena coming out and saying Angle ain’t going out this way.
This would’ve then led to a John Cena vs. Kurt Angle match, with Cena defeating Angle to retire him.
However, Vince McMahon eventually came to a decision that the crowd isn’t booing the Angle vs. Corbin feud because they don’t want it, but Vince thought it was because of Corbin’s ‘excellent heel work’.
This resulted in Vince booking Corbin to defeat Angle clean and then Cena was booked for an angle with Elias at WrestleMania 35.
