Kurt Angle Praises Baron Corbin: “Best Heel In The Business Right Now”

Kurt Angle competed in his retirement match at WrestleMania earlier this year, and many fans and critics were shocked by WWE’s decision to let Baron Corbin be the one who retires Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle appeared on the Busted Open podcast and talked about his retirement match at WrestleMania, the list of opponents he wanted to face, the fans’ reaction to Baron Corbin and much more.

When asked about the decision to put Corbin ahead of superstars like John Cena, Kurt Angle said he felt Baron Corbin was the right person to do it. Angle also said that originally they wanted Jason Jordan (Kurt Angle’s on-screen son) to retire him.

“I think Vince (McMahon) felt if Jason (Jordan) is not going to be around, we are going to use Baron,” Angle stated. “I think Baron ends up getting Jason’s spot and rightfully so, I loved Baron’s progress, loved his look, he is really good, takes care of you in the ring and he is a great worker. It occurred at WrestleMania 35 because that is where we were going in the first place.”

Kurt Angle went on to talk about how Vince McMahon had no clue that Angle was going to call it quits at WrestleMania 35.

Kurt Angle had nothing but praise for the former Money in the Bank holder, and he said “So, if I wanted to retire this year, it had to be Baron, I was fine with that and I respected the decision. Was Baron the right person? Probably not. But I think Baron Corbin right now is the best heel in the business right now. People genuinely hate him and that is real heat.”

Although Baron Corbin’s character and in-ring talent has been questioned quite often in the past, words of praise from a legend of the business like Kurt Angle is surely a plus point for him.

Baron Corbin teams up with Lacey Evans to take on Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch at WWE Extreme Rules in a Winner Takes All match for the Universal and RAW Women’s Championship.
