As noted, Kurt Angle’s very last match with WWE will be taking place at WrestleMania 35 this April. Although his opponent is currently set as Baron Corbin, the details regarding that are now being reconsidered, according @Wrestlevotes. WWE officials apparently did not expect such a negative reaction, and they don’t want to leave a bad taste in people’s mouth for such an important match.
