Lawler says he was kind of dissapointed when he heard that Baron Corbin would be Kurt Angle’s opponent in his retirement match at WrestleMania. He hopes there’s a swerve and another opponent is announced in the next couple of weeks. He thinks John Cena would have been a great opponent for Angle.
He’s not sure how he’d book the swerve, but he notes that the history between Angle and Cena should be enough to book the match. Angle was Cena’s opponent for his first ever WWE match, so it makes a lot of sense for Cena to be Angle’s opponent for his last match.
WWE announced this past week that long time employee, Sue Aitchison, will be this year’s Warrior Award recipient. Lawler informs that Aitchison was there when he debuted with the company in 1992.
She’s so deserving of the award in his opinion, and he’s happy to see WWE acknowledge her because this is what The Warrior wanted the award to be when he gave his speech before passing away. Lawler adds that there are so many people behind the scenes that deserve the award.
This year marks the 17th anniversary of The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 18. Lawler says that was his favourite match to call without a doubt. The electricity and atmosphere in the building that night was unbelievable and he’ll never forget it.
