WWE RAW REPORT: STAKES ARE RAISED FOR THE MAIN EVENT, SETH SENDS A MESSAGE TO BROCK, DAVE HAS A MESSAGE FOR HUNTER, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-04-01 22:59:00

We are back and Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

Kurt says the crowd is making this hard.  He says this is his last night ever on Raw.  He says he has been through good times and bad times.  He has heard some boos but mostly cheers.  From the bottom of his heart, Kurt says he wants to say Thank You.

We have a video package for Kurt Angle.   Randy Orton says Kurt excelled at every aspect of the game.  Cena says he is a once very two generation performer.  Mick says that when he heard the 'Three Is" promo, he knew he could make it.  Triple H says the best thing about Kurt was his ability to poke fun at himself and go with things.  Steve Austin says Kurt is one of the most talented guys he was in the ring with. 

Kurt mentions that he broke his neck again and he left WWE.  Kurt says he never thought he would be back.  Kurt says he was born to win a gold medal but his destiny was to come to the WWE to entertain the fans.

Kurt fights back the tears and out comes Baron Corbin.

He asks if he is interrupting a stroll down memory lane.  Baron says that should have been in black and white because that was ancient history.  That is not the man you saw in the video package.  The man in the ring cannot take off his jacket and he cannot last more than a few minutes without huffing and puffing.  Baron says everyone is bigger and better than him.  Baron says he is sick of hearing that Kurt deserves someone better than him as his last opponent in WWE.

Baron says the last image of Kurt Angle will be a broken down man on his back in the middle of the ring on Sunday.

Kurt says they will meet on Sunday, but why not have an exhibition match tonight?

Corbin makes his way to the ring and he thinks about entering the ring, but he has a case of LaceyEvansItis and goes back to the floor.  He says there is the Kurt Angle intensity, but where is the intelligence.  Baron says he will wait until Sunday.

As Baron goes up the ring, Rey Mysterio makes his way to the ring.

Rey says they get it.  You don't want to fight Kurt tonight, but someone needs to teach you a lesson in respect.  Rey suggests that he face Corbin tonight.

Baron says he will not do that.  Corbin punches Rey and Angle punches Corbin.  Rey with a springboard seated splash followed by an Olympic Slam from Angle.  Corbin goes to the floor.

We go to the back and we have Charlotte Flair in the interview area.  Charlotte is asked about the new stipulation for her match on Sunday and if she is concerned.  Charlotte says someone should ask Asuka if she was blindsided when she was forced to tap out.  The world will be blindsided on Sunday when she breaks Becky's leg and makes Ronda tap out.  Stephanie had to change the match since Charlotte says she has changed the game.

Charlotte is asked if she can keep her cool in the six woman tag match.  She says she is not like Ronda or Becky.  They better stay away from her after the match, or they won't make it to Wrestlemania.
