WWE legend Kurt Angle has revealed he will say farewell to the sport at Wrestlemania.
The legitimate Olympic gold medallist has won it all in the promotion and has also been inducted into their hall of fame in 2017.
The multi time world champion finally addressed his future as he had been promising to do so for weeks now and did so in front of his home town crowd in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Clearly emotional, the Olympic Hero told the crowd “At WrestleMania I will compete in my farewell match.
"I’d like to thank the WWE, I’d like to thank every superstar I shared a locker room with and most importantly I’d like to thank each and every one of you. I’ve literally had the time of my life.”
Fighting back the tears Angle went on to say that he felt it was right that he had one more match in his hometown as part of his farewell tour.
Up stepped Apollo to take on the Olympian and the former NXT standout lost in quick succession as he was hit with the famous Angle Slam.
Kurt’s WrestleMania opponent has yet to be announced with speculation running wild that John Cena – who currently doesn’t have a match for April 7 at the MetLife Stadium – could be the man to fill that void.
With four weeks to go until the showcase of the immortals, rumours will run rife over who will get to face Angle in his final WWE match.
Meanwhile, Bobby Lashley regained the intercontinental championship from Finn Balor.
Balor was distracted by Lashley’s corner man Lio Rush who rang the ring bell as Finn was on the top rope going for his Coup De grace finisher.
As Finn jumped back in the ring he was hit with an all mighty spear and Lashley regained his title that he lost just 22 days ago.
