Kurt Angle was lucky enough to have a long career inside the squared circle, but it all came to an end when he wrestled his retirement match at WrestleMania 35.
Angle was defeated by the one and only Baron Corbin, but during a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet Angle revealed that Jason Jordan was originally supposed to be his opponent at the Show of Shows.
“It would have been Jason Jordan. Jason, unfortunately, got injured, but that would have been my opponent at Mania.”
“I adore that kid. He’s so talented. He got a lot of heat for being my son. He played the part great – he was a spoiled brat. He was using me to get what he wanted. A lot of fans hated him just like Baron Corbin, but I think that’s good. He was really good in the ring.”
Jason Jordan has been out of action since February of 2018, but Kurt Angle noted that he expects him to return to the ring at some point.
“He’s good. I expect him to come back. He’s still waiting. He has some problems with his circulation and using his left hand. So, he’s going to have to wait a little bit longer. He might need another surgery, that might be why he still is not able to function properly, but he’s a lot better than he was.”
