Mick Foley believes that Drew McIntyre should be the one who gets to wrestle Kurt Angle in the latter's farewell match at WrestleMania.
No matter what a former WWE Superstar does if and when they leave the company, there is always a way back. While the relationship between WWE and Kurt Angle didn't end on bad terms, it was still surprising to see him brought back into the fold in 2017. Not only to deservedly enshrine Angle in the WWE Hall Of Fame but also so he could wrestle a few matches too.
No matter how much you love Angle, it is plain to see that more than two decades of putting his body through hell is starting to catch up with him. That's likely why at WrestleMania 35, the Olympic gold medalist will compete in his last match ever. What we currently don't know is who that match will be against.
There are a few names being banded around, and Mick Foley has weighed in on who he believes should do the honors. Drew McIntyre. "I think the two of them would rise to the occasion, it would be the biggest match of Drew's career," Foley told Sky Sports earlier this week. He also touched on the pair's match last year on Raw.

McIntyre and Angle competed during the main event of Raw back in November 2018. During that match, The Scot humiliated Angle, using his own ankle lock on him. For that to come full circle and happen again on the grandest stage of them all would be pretty great. Angle doesn't necessarily need to win, just give a good account of himself in his last match and force McIntyre to respect him.
At the time of typing this, it feels as if McIntyre is being reserved for a WrestleMania match with Roman Reigns. If that is indeed the case, then we would like John Cena to be the one to retire Angle. Speaking of full circle, nothing would be more full circle than that. Cena's first ever match on WWE television was against Angle all the way back in 2002. For Angle's last to be against Cena would be a pretty incredible way for him to give that win back and sign off for good 17 years later.
