“Honestly? My Wrestlemania 35 match. I would have liked to go out with a win, but I understand why it didn’t occur,” he said.

However, Angle is also quick to point out that, losing was ultimately the right thing to do.

“As a legend or HOF-er or whatever you want to call me, my job is to leave the WWE by doing the honors for a younger talent. I did that. I would have loved to have won, but I don’t think I would have properly played my role if I did. You leave the company better than it was before you came,” Angle concluded.
