One of the biggest stories in recent months has been which WWE legends will be appearing or even wrestling at WrestleMania 39.
It had long been believed that The Rock would be wrestling on the show but the man himself has reportedly told WWE that he won’t have time to get in shape to compete. Meanwhile, it has also been revealed that Steve Austin was offered matches against both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns after his triumphant return in 2022. However, he turned down the chance to get back in the ring.
Although both men could still appear on the show it has been reported that John Cena will be in action taking on Austin Theory.
Another legend of the ring who will be at the event is Kurt Angle. Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the former World Champion confirmed he’ll be at the show but whether he’ll be featured on-screen remains a mystery.
“Right now, my flight plans leave Sunday morning. I’ll watch the first half of WrestleMania. I might stay and extend my flight to the next day, but I want to watch Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes because I believe he’s going to win the title.”
(Co-host Paul Bromwell pointed out that we don’t know yet whether Roman vs Cody is on the first or second night).
“I’m doing an appearance for WrestleCon. I believe I’m going to do some stuff for WWE as well. I plan on going to WrestleMania for one day. I’m really excited about it. This is the first WrestleMania I’ve gone to in a while.”
When Did Kurt Angle Last Wrestle?
After a 20-year career, Kurt Angle finally hung up his boots at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. In the lead-up to the show Angle announced that he would be retiring at the event, and his final opponent would be Baron Corbin. On the big night Angle was defeated by Corbin before saying goodbye to the crowd.
Angle later described his final match against Baron Corbin as “filler” before suggesting that he would have liked to have gone out against John Cena after a run with the World Championship.
