Kurt Angle Reveals What He Would Have Changed About WWE Retirement Match


On Saturday, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle took part in another Q&A on his official Facebook page. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On wishing he wrestled more upon returning to WWE in 2017: "Yes, I wish I would have wrestled more when I came back in early 2017. I was wrestling really well then. Because of my inactivity of being GM, my body started to get arthritic. I got tighter, more sore, and less flexible than when I was active two years ago. In other words, the inactivity of not wrestling consistently led me to retirement a little faster. But, I can't complain. I loved doing what I did in WWE."

On if he could change something about any match he had, which would it be and why: "Honestly? My Wrestlemania 35 match. I would have liked to go out with a win, but I understand why it didn't occur. Many people believe that I should have had a different opponent. Maybe. Maybe not. But my argument as to why it should have been Corbin is pretty strong. As a Hall Of Famer and Legend in WWE, I came to my final match last Sunday. It was my retirement match.

"As a legend, or Hall Of Famer, or whatever you want to call me, my job is to leave the WWE by doing the honors for a younger talent. I did that. I would have loved to have won, but I don't think I would have properly played my role if I did. You leave the company better than it was before you came. I think I was able to do that by losing to Corbin and then getting laid out on RAW the next night to Lars. It may have felt wrong, but it was the right thing to do. Agree to disagree."
