It has baffled me a little how they've used Kurt Angle, they kept him out of the ring for the first year pretty much and then suddenly started using him fairly regularly on tv as a wrestler but completely jobbed him out in pretty low key matches. 

Kurt is past his prime but I think he has a few great matches left in him and I thought they would use him on a special attraction basis for a few dream matches against top talent at major events. 

Trouble is now the way he's been booked has all but killed his big star value and when he wrestles now I view him more as a ageing veteran with a little star power left being used as a enhancement talent, not the legendary the Kurt Angle who can still compete with the best.

I'm thinking hes working few and far between to keep him in ring shape and reducing the risk of injury.

Teh fact hes still on the roster must mean they have something for him because normally HOF members just disappear once any angle they were required for is finished

i'd assume, once Mania is gone, he'll be back as GM of Raw, and we won't see Steph, HHH and especially Vince until the next big need for them to be front and centre, which will hopefully be next Rumble.

*DOUBLE POST

so we're building to a final match at Mania...

doesn't seem like there's going to be a feud leading into this, so will be interesting to see how his opponent is selected.

I partly thought that Crews would attack Angle after the match on Raw, and that would be used to build up the match.

will also be interesting to see if things in WWE do return to normal post-Mania, and he is again put in an authoritarian role, perhaps shipping over to SDL, or if he will bow out of WWE. if the latter, I wonder if that really will be his last match.

Well I hope they use this storyline as a way to make someone and not completely waste the opportunity like they did by having Lesnar break The Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak. 

Kurt has lost a step in the ring and I read a report recently where he admitted he can't go in the ring like he used to and that's why hes retiring. 

It's a shame The Undertaker is now too old and broken down as it would have been fitting for Angle and Taker to face each other at Mania as a retirement match for one or both of them, but with both men too past their prime there's a good chance this match would now be awful. 

Again that's why they should use it as a chance to build a younger future star, Apollo Crewes would be a good shout or maybe even someone like Gargano or Aleister Black or perhaps ECIII but not sure he's got the skills in the ring to get a decent match out of Angle. Another guy I'd like to see in the ring with Kurt is Bobby Lashley.

I personally think they should have Mcintyre retire Angle and give him that thing to kick start his momentum back off and propel him closer to the title scene - especially when Rollins wins hes going to need some fresh Heel competition

I would have agreed with you but McIntyre seems set for a showdown with Roman Reigns.

A rumour is circling that John Cena may be the guy lined up for Kurt's farewell, I hope not as Cena is not the right choice to give Angle the quality match he will want to bow out with.

A guy I didn't think of before is Samoa Joe, these two tore it up in TNA and their styles mesh well, plus if Joe went over it would be killer bragging rights for him to be the guy that retired Angle.

Makes kinda sense to be Cena in a way as his debut was against Angle so i guess then the storyline has went full circle
