The last episode of WWE Raw Night on Tuesday was full of emotion and action as the WWE universe paid the tribute to star wrestler Kurt Angle before his retirement from the ring. Angle who walked towards the ring in order to take on Rey Mysterio became speechless when he was surprised with a tribute video instead of face-off. This was the final apperance of the Angle in WWE Raw.
The 50-year-old Olympic gold medallist announced his retirement from WWE in another Raw night at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he gave an emotional speech in front of his home crowd PPG Paints Arena. Earlier, in the match Angle had a one-on-one match with giant Apollo Crews in which he knocked down the opponent in just a few minutes of action followed by his vintage ‘Angle Slam’.

This year’s WrestleMania is going to happen on April 7 at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey where Kurt Angle will perform his last battle and women wrestlers like Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will perform their first ever triple threat battle in WrestleMania 35. Kurt Angle will face Baron Corbin in his farewell match. Though, the WWE universe is not so happy with the choice of Baron Corbin against Angle in Mania 2019 as there were many other strong contenders in the field to make the battle look like happened never before.
The Hall of Famer will next be seen in the biggest fan convention event of WWE Starrcast after WrestleMania 35. He will perform with other AEW superstars like Chris Jericho, The Young Bucks, and Cody Rhodes at the event.
