While in conversation with Conrad Thompson, Kurt Angle revealed that he had forgotten about his pyro. He kept walking down the ramp, and when it went off, it scared him to bits.

“We didn’t really get affected by pyro because we were so focused on our matches. It didn’t bother me that much. But, at the first time I got pyro, I forgot about it. I walked out to my entrance music, I was supposed to stop and put my hands in the air and my pyro was supposed to go off. I forgot, I kept walking down the ramp and the pyro went off, I was like ‘holy sh*t!’ It scared the hell out of me. I turned around and you could tell I was scared to hell from that. It was a little bit embarrassing but I played it off like I was supposed to.”

He hadn’t gone to John Cena directly, therefore, he doesn’t know if it was Cena who rejected it. Nevertheless, John Cena was present at the arena at WrestleMania 35, and Angle was rather furious upon seeing that. Even though he spoke to Cena, he did not ask him why the match didn’t go through.
