One of the greatest of all time will hang up his boots in just three weeks’ time, after more than two decades inside the squared circle.
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle wrestled his final match in the great city of Chicago this evening, tapping out Chad Gable with his patented Ankle Lock to score another victory on his farewell tour. While the Windy City poured down love and admiration for the Olympic gold medalist, they didn’t exactly appreciate what came after the match…
While Angle was celebrating his final win in one of wrestling’s most important cities, the legend was interrupted by none other than Baron Corbin. Fans may recall that the two have had a strenuous relationship — and that’s putting it mildly — ever since Corbin took his job as interim General Manager last year.
It was officially revealed that Corbin has been tapped to face Angle in his farewell match in just three weeks time, on the Grandest Stage of Them All. While the fans in attendance tonight loudly booed that decision, and some even chanted “WE WANT CENA!” — something virtually unheard of in Chicago — it looks like the match has now been made official for WrestleMania.
