Kurt Angle announced a few weeks ago that he’ll be wrestling his farewell match, and he picked Baron Corbin to be his opponent at WrestleMania 35.
On the road to WrestleMania, Kurt Angle has been facing a number of high profile opponents on his farewell tour, such as Samoa Joe, and tonight he’s set to face AJ Styles on SmackDown, with a match against Rey Mysterio booked for Raw next week.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that these opponents have been hand picked by Kurt Angle himself. However, Kurt Angle didn’t have input in regards to his WrestleMania match with Baron Corbin.
Kurt’s match against AJ Styles tonight is being promoted as his last SmackDown match ever.
