Kurt Angle Reveals Why Vince McMahon Turned Down His Dream Retirement Match At Wrestlemania 35
Angle ended up revealing that he originally told Vince McMahon that he wanted to face John Cena at the event. Angle ended up explaining why that match didn’t end up happening.
Here is what he said…
Yeah yeah it was. It was an idea. I’m not going to put any blame on anyone. The thing is…I decided to retire at Mania. Vince didn’t tell me ‘Listen you’re done after Mania.’ I went to him and said ‘Listen I want to retire. I’m not able to do what I used to, and if I can’t be the old Kurt Angle I want to get done now.’ I was hearing a lot of feedback from people that Kurt looks like he’s in pain in the ring and he’s slower then he used to be….guys I’m 50 years old of course I’m slower. I think they were hoping that Cena and me next year. When I asked to retire at last WrestleMania, I threw Cena out at Vince and Vince said ‘Listen you have a program that you’ve been doing for a year…I’m not throwing it away…it’s with Baron Corbin. So whether you want to retire here or whenever…you’re going to wrestle Baron at WrestleMania.’ I said ‘You know what that’s fair.’
