We are now almost three weeks away from WrestleMania 35, and still there is lots to be sorted out in relation to the make-up of the match card.

As of this moment seven matches are officially slated for both the main card and the Kick Off Show, and considering last years event had 14 bouts spanning over six hours, there are still things to be worked out.

One match that is confirmed but not finalised is the final ever match in the career of Kurt Angle.

The 1996 Olympic gold medalist joined WWE in 1999, switching from real-life wrestling to the sports entertainment form, and picked up the tricks of the trade quicker than anyone.

A six-time world champion with WWE, in addition to being a Grand Slam Champion, a Triple Crown Champion and a Hall of Famer, Angle has had quite the career in the sport and the company.

But he will officially bow out at the Metlife Stadium on April 7, but no-one as of yet knows who his opponent will be.

Mick Foley has stated his desire to see Kurt Angle get revenge on Drew McIntyre for being humiliated on Raw in November

Angle will reveal all this coming Monday on Raw, but fellow Hall of Famer Mick Foley has stated who he would like to see him go one-on-one with at the Show Of Shows.

“I’d like to see him wrestle Drew McIntyre," Foley told Sky Sports during his flying visit to Sheffield, England this week.

"Drew beat him with his own finishing hold [on Raw]. Kurt’s a man of tremendous pride. He’s the most competitive person I’ve ever met and I think the two of them would both rise to the occasion.

"It would be the biggest match of Drew’s career, and Kurt Angle is not going to go home with anything but his best effort.”

Despite Foley wanting to see that match happen again, it looks as though McIntyre instead will be going face-to-face with Roman Reigns in New Jersey if last weeks Raw is anything to go by.

Surprisingly the dirt sheets haven't heard a concrete name for Angle's opponent, but many want John Cena to return and be Kurt's final match, just like Angle was Cena's first match.

If Cena has no better plans then expect the match to be made in a few days time as Raw rolls into Chicago.
