    WWE Hall of Fame WWE Hall of Fame 2017 - Jim Cornette Inducting Rock and Roll Express~!!!

    Taken from WWE.com

    It’s true, it’s true! Kurt Angle will be taking his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2017 just two days before WrestleMania 33, as first reported by ESPN.com.

    “Kurt Angle’s accomplishments both in the Olympics and WWE were extraordinary,” said WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Paul Levesque. “He was one of the most gifted athletes to ever enter the ring, and we are honored to welcome him into the WWE Hall of Fame.”


    Before becoming a legend of the squared circle, the proud Pittsburgh native was a world-class amateur competitor, becoming a two-time All-American and a two-time NCAA Champion while wrestling for Clarion University in his home state of Pennsylvania. His incredible amateur career culminated at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, where he fought off the incredible pain of a “broken freakin’ neck” to win the gold medal for the United States of America.

    In 1998, Angle made the jump from amateur to professional wrestling by signing with WWE. One year later, the gold medal grappler made his debut at Survivor Series 1999, picking up the first win of an undefeated streak that saw Angle capture the European and Intercontinental Championships. His unbelievable rookie campaign culminated at WWE No Mercy in October 2000, where he defeated The Rock to capture his first WWE Championship.


    Though his wrestling ability was unparalleled, Angle adapted to the entertainment side of sports-entertainment better than anyone could have expected. Whether it was preaching his “three Is” – intensity, integrity and intelligence – taking part in a five-second pose with Edge & Christian or joining “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for a backstage sing-along, The Olympic Hero was able to make the WWE Universe laugh when he wasn’t wowing them with his athleticism.

    By the time he left WWE in 2006, Angle had become one of the company’s most decorated stars in a short period of time. His resume includes four reigns as WWE Champion, a World Heavyweight Championship, the WCW, United States, Hardcore, Intercontinental and World Tag Team Championships. In addition, Angle was the 2000 King of the Ring and even served as General Manager of SmackDown.

    In honor of these accomplishments, along with his incredible contributions to the WWE Universe during his storied career, Angle will be enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame.

    Marshall I'm gonna edit your post with the full story because WWE is tweeting about this so it doesn't need to be a spoiler.

    Great fucking news, let the rumors begin on might Angle face in his last match. Lesnar, Taker or maybe a young Lion from Raw or SD. Whoever it is, yeah it's just a HOF spot, but the man still has gas in the tank and I want him to unleash it someone before he puts away his Olympic shoes.

    Re: Kurt Angle Going Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

    His theme literally came on my spotify shuffle a second. Pumped for this. My all-time favourite growing up. Let the rumours begin. Angle to wrestle one more match? Stoked to see if it is just an induction or not.

    Re: Kurt Angle Going Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

    It didn't take long for someone to make a thread for this

    This is fucking great news. This year's HoF is going to be pretty loaded then, isn't it? Assuming we get Rude and DDP too. I assume with Angle going in they're going to hold off on putting in The Rock this year.

    Cannot fucking wait. I can't believe the HOF will be the first time Angle steps into a WWE event in 11 years.

    Re: Kurt Angle Going Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

    When I heard the rumoured class, I thought they were short of a headliner, so Angle ticks that box for sure. Wonder who inducts him, I'm hoping for Austin.

    I don't think they'd ever let him wrestle again.

    Not with his neck they won't. Surprised people think there is even a chance.

    As for the person to induct him Austin would be my first guess to.

    Re: Kurt Angle Going Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

    I think he's still scheduled to face Cody in a cage match in March, so this is interesting. Hoping for a match of some kind. Doubt it'll be at Mania, but hoping for something eventually. If nothing else, another GM/manager type role.

    As for who inducts him? Lesnar isn't a bad option but I doubt they have him do it. Triple H seems kinda obvious too. Austin wouldn't be bad though.

    Edit- Maybe even Shane?

    Re: Kurt Angle Going Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

    Shelton and Haas should induct him


    If Sting can get a couple of matches in WWE then I think it's not out the realms of possibility they might have Angle wrestle one last match.

    I'd love for them to storyline fire Foley and have Angle replace him as RAW's GM. Foley is bizarre now.
