Match 5: Kurt Angle vs. Apollo Crews
Summary: Pittsburgh’s own Kurt Angle announced that he will compete in his farewell match at WrestleMania 35, prompting a huge “Thank you, Kurt!” chant. He then said that, as he is in Pittsburgh, he wants one final match in his hometown. Apollo Crews was revealed as his opponent. It looked as though Crews might get the win when he climbed to the top rope and attempted a frog splash. However, Angle moved and hit an Angle Slam to pick up the victory.
Verdict: This was a fitting way for Angle to announce his farewell match. It’s interesting that he used the word “farewell”, as opposed to “retirement”. The wording makes me think this is simply his WWE farewell but he could compete somewhere other than WWE in the future.
