What's the story?

The fans may witness the last of Kurt Angle's in-ring career at WrestleMania 35 as Brad Shepard revealed on the Oh You Didn't Know Wrestling Show that the WWE Hall of Famer is in a bad physical condition at the moment.

He opened up about the struggles that Angle is facing backstage and termed it as unfortunate to watch.

In case you didn't know...

Angle was brought back to the WWE in 2017 as the headline inductee of the Hall of Fame class of that year. He was appointed as the Raw General Manager after WrestleMania 33 and thus began a year-long stint as the decision maker of WWE's flagship show.

Since making his comeback, the Olympic gold medalist has wrestled twelve matches with the most recent one taking place this week on Raw. Angle teamed up with Finn Balor and Braun Strowman in a winning effort against the heel team of Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, and Bobby Lashley.

Cherish while you can as WrestleMania 35 may be the last time we see the former World Champion in action inside a WWE ring...

The heart of the matter

Shepard spoke about Angle's physical predicament on the latest episode of Oh You Don't Know and the situation doesn't look good at all.

"Now Kurt Angle can barely move. I'm told that he moves like Mick Foley backstage Standing still he looks pretty good, we can see that in the ring but, when you watch him, I've been told, getting in and out of his car, It's "unfortunate". So Kurt Angle is not in good physical shape at all and he is on his way out of the company, " revealed Shepard.

What's next?

It's truly unfortunate to see the man who won an Olympic gold medalist with a 'broken friggin neck' in the condition that he is. Angle has nothing else left to prove and should ideally hang up his boots at the show of shows.
