WWE announced today that Olympic gold medalist and twelve-time world champion Kurt Angle will in fact be headlining this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class.
On the topic of his induction, Angle told ESPN (who broke the news shortly before WWE’s official announcement) the following—”It’s a huge honor. This is the only Hall of Fame that I’m not in and probably [the one] I want to be in the most. This is the one that means the most for me. I had a lot of fun entertaining the fans for seven years with WWE, and I’m glad that my hard work paid off.”
Triple H personally called the Olympian this afternoon to inform him of the news, following up (with a bit of a delay) on a conversation they had last May.
ESPN’s interview continued, covering ground that’s sure to be of interest to many of us, asking Kurt about the possibility of him wrestling for WWE once more.
“We have not talked about any wrestling,” Angle said. “Whether we do or not, that remains to be seen… There are no guarantees. I think right now the most important thing is the Hall of Fame — and I think both sides feel that way.”
Angle will be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame this March.
