The WWE has announced a big singles match for Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Kurt Angle is scheduled to face AJ Styles in what they are billing as Angle’s final match ever on SmackDown prior to his farewell match at WrestleMania. It marks the first time Angle has wrestled on SmackDown since a match he had against Rey Mysterio in May 2006.

The two had an extensive rivalry throughout their time together in TNA with countless singles matches. Angle arrived at Impact in September 2006 and the two would have their first match in January 2007 at an Impact taping. Their last match together in TNA was in July 2013 for a BaseBrawl event in Pennsylvania.

Angle is scheduled to face Baron Corbin at WrestleMania while Styles is slated for a match with Randy Orton at the show in two weeks at MetLife Stadium.

This brand split really is pointless now.

Angle vs Styles on Smackdown and Angle vs Corbin at Wrestlemania. It makes perfect sense.

Who feel that this match will be a big disappointment that will end with orton being involve somehow. I don’t see this match going more then 5 minutes before all hell breaks loose.
