Kurt Angle spoke with ESPN about his WWE Hall of Fame induction and revealed who contacted him. “I figured they either decided they didn’t want to do anything with me or they forgot,” Angle said. “Hunter (Paul “Triple H” Levesque) said they never forgot and he called and told me this is the first thing they want to do. And whether I wrestle or not after this — which is irrelevant right now — I’m just really proud to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I gave a lot of energy and time to WWE those first seven years, and I’m grateful that they recognized it.”
Angle also stated that his Hall of Fame deal does not include a WrestleMania match. “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.” Read more at ESPN.com.
Powell’s POV: The big question is whether Angle could pass WWE’s medical testing at this stage in his life. He has stated that his surgically repaired neck is doing well, but he’s put a lot of milage on his body over the years and there’s no telling whether the neck or other injuries would be red flagged. The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will be held on Friday, March 31 in Orlando, Florida at Amway Center.
