WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle’s retirement match has been confirmed. On last night’s (Mon. March 18, 2019) episode of Monday Night RAW, Angle announced he’d be facing Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35. Angle wants revenge for the hell Corbin caused him when he was General Manager of RAW.

However, upon the announcement, fans were extremely disappointed with the decision. Instead, chants of “we want Cena” broke out. John Cena is expected to be competing at WrestleMania 35, but is currently without an opponent. It looks like the likes of WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross share the WWE Universe’s disappointment.

In response to the news of Angle vs. Corbin at WrestleMania, Ross called the news “underwhelming” on Twitter:

Even Angle’s wife, Giovanna, had some unfavorable comments about the match-up on Twitter. She initially Tweeted out, “The fans chanting We want Cena…..we feel ya!” She later responded to Ross’ “underwhelming” Tweet with, “Very.” Both of Giovanna’s Tweets have since been deleted.
