Kurt Angle announced this week on Monday Night Raw that this year's WrestleMania will be his last, as he will be retiring after having one more match at the event.

Angle announced on Monday in his hometown of Pittsburgh that he would be having a farewell match at WrestleMania, 35 his last match in WWE before retirement, before going on beat Apollo Crews in a match.

Since his announcement, fans have been discussing which superstar The Olympic Hero will be facing in his final match in the WWE before riding off into the sunset.

WWE though may have already teased who his opponent will be at this year's Showcase of the Immortals with an image on Instagram.

WWE posted an image of Angle with six superstars with the caption: "Who you think @therealkurtangle's final opponent should be!"

The six superstars featured in the image are Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, John Cena, Samoa Joe, and Shelton Benjamin.

Recently on Raw, Angle has been having problems with Lashley, McIntyre, and Corbin, but the superstar that makes the most sense out of these three is The Lone Wolf.

Lashley will likely be defending the Intercontinental Championship at the show, while McIntyre is likely to face Roman Reigns.

Corbin took over as interim general manager of Raw last year when The Olympic Hero was forced to go on vacation, and the two have not been on the same terms since.


However, many WWE fans will be hoping Angle faces off against one of the bottom three superstars in the picture, as the WWE Hall of Famer has a strong past with each one of them.

Benjamin teamed with Angle as Team Angle during the early 2000s in WWE alongside Charlie Haas. They were together as a team until Benjamin and Haas were fired from the group by Angle in June 2003.


While Angle and Joe have never had a singles match against each other in the WWE, there were bitter rivals during their time together in TNA.

WWE could be looking to revisit the historic rivalry one final time at WrestleMania.


The match that is the most likely to happen though is Angle vs Cena. The 16-time world champion has already teased a possible Angle WrestleMania match on his Instagram account this week.

The Olympic Hero famously fought against The Leader of the Cenation in the latter's first match in the WWE on the main roster 17 years ago, so it would be cool to see Cena return the favour and be a part of Angle's last match in the company.

What is also interesting to note is that Raw next week takes place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.


This is the same arena which played host to the first Angle vs Cena match during the latter's WWE main roster debut in 2002.

If Angle vs Cena does go ahead at WrestleMania 35, it will be the first time the two superstars have faced each other in the ring in a singles match since January 2006.

We'll have to wait and see as to what direction WWE goes in for Angle at WrestleMania, but it should be a great match nevertheless.
