• Reason Behind WWE Choosing Baron Corbin To Defeat Kurt Angle At WrestleMania 35
As seen this past Sunday at WrestleMania 35, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle lost the final match of his career to Baron Corbin.
Angle got his revenge on last night’s RAW though, when Angle layed out Corbin with an Angle Slam and made him tap out to the Ankle Lock (this was before Lars Sullivan made his debut and laid out Angle).
According to the Wrestling Observer, Corbin was chosen to get a big win over Angle because WWE is grooming him for a feud with “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this plan.
