Negative Reaction Backstage To Baron Corbin Facing Kurt Angle, Ex-WWE Star At SmackDown (Photos)

— With Kurt Angle’s Farewell Match at WrestleMania 35 fast approaching, speculation has run rampant as to who “The Olympic Hero” would face on the way out. Prior to facing Chad Gable on Raw last week, Angle made a simple and appropriate selection: Baron Corbin.

“The Lone Wolf” supplanted Angle as Raw General Manager and made his life miserable, so he’s the one Angle wants to hobble before he rides off into the sunset.

According to Tom Colohue, a freelance writer who contributes to the Pro Wrestling Torch, several members of the WWE creative team believe that Corbin is the wrong opponent for Angle. The match, however, is still scheduled to take place because “a small minority above them” believe it’s the right move for WWE going forward.
