WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle retired from in-ring action at last year's WrestleMania pay-per-view, and since then, he's been serving as a backstage producer. The Olympic gold medalist competed against Baron Corbin and put the current superstar over, which triggered a push for the younger talent. However, according to Angle, he was originally scheduled to face another rising superstar.
As quoted by Ringside News, Angle recently discussed his final match in an interview with Chris Van Vliet, and revealed that he would have competed against his fictional son if circumstances had allowed him to.
"Vince wanted me to go another year. For the most part, yes Jason [Jordan] would have been my last match and it would have made sense. I adore that kid. He's so talented and you know he got a lot of heat for being my son and he played the part great that's why people hated...him. He was being a spoiled brat about everything. He was using me to get what he wanted. It was a great… Vince was great with that."
