WWE Legend Mick Foley Names His Pick For Kurt Angle’s Final Match At WrestleMania

Mick Foley has revealed the one WWE superstar that he would like Kurt Angle to face at WrestleMania 35.

The 50-year-old Olympic Gold medalist made the announcement on Raw that he would be having his final match at the Grandest Stage of Them All.

Foley has been visiting the UK after he received an invitation from Billy Sharp, who used the WWE legend's 'Mr Socko' for his celebration, to watch Sheffield United play against Brentford at Bramall Lane.

Sky Sports spoke to the WWE Hall of Famer and asked him about Angle's news, along with the superstar who should face him in his final match with the company.

"I'd like to see him wrestle Drew McIntyre," he said. "Drew beat him with his own finishing hold.

"Kurt's a man of tremendous pride. He's the most competitive person I've ever met and I think the two of them would both rise to the occasion.

"It would be the biggest match of Drew's career and Kurt Angle [is] not going to go home with anything but his best effort."

McIntyre returned to WWE in 2017 and has climbed the ranks of the WWE roster, with some believing that he could potentially challenge for the WWE Universal Championship at some point in 2019.

However, the superstar won't be the only one lining up at the opportunity to face Angle.

In fact, John Cena has caused a fair bit of rumbling in the wrestling circles after he posted an old image of the WWE Hall of Famer on his Instagram.

"Faaack, this is happening!!!" one user wrote in response.

A second said: "Give us the match we want."

A third wrote: "Very emotional match it would be."

A fourth added: "Would come back and watch WWE if John came back as [the] Doctor of Thuganomics vs Angle for his retirement."

For those unaware, the leader of C-Nation made his debut against Angle in 2002 when he took up the Olympic Gold medalist's open challenge on an episode of SmackDown.
