So WWE have just announce their first inductee into this years Hall of Fame. And this years headline inductee will be none other than the Olympic gold medalist (which he won with a broken frikin' neck, by the way), the 4 time WWE Champion, 1 time World Heavyweight Champion, 1 time WCW Champion, 1 time United States Champion, 1 time Intercontinental Champion, 1 time European Champion, 1 time Hardcore Champion, 1 time WWE Tag Team Champion and 2000 King of the Ring. Oh it's true, it's DAMN true, it's real it's DAMN real:
Yes. Kurt Angle is FINALLY back in the WWE. And even if we never get to see him wrestle again, I'm very happy that he's getting to take his deserved place in the WWE Hall of Fame. He's without question for me the best pure wrestler ever and I'm very excite to see him back. I hope we get to see him come out to cut a promo on Raw at least or something, but how awesome would it be to see him wrestling just one more time in WWE? A match vs Rusev? A match vs AJ Styles? Any of those at Wrestlemania would draw a hell of a lot of money.
But as mentioned, even if he won't be wrestling again, I'm very happy to see him back in WWE. We could even see him become an authority figure, as there's been talk of Mick Foley getting the boot as GM. Could Angle replace him? I think it's possible. Otherwise I think he'll just be signing a legends deal and perhaps take a backstage role as a trainer int he performance center. I think that would be a really fulfilling role for him and one he'd excel at.
So angle is without question a worthy headliner for this year's HOF, but ho else could we see go in? there was talk of Goldberg going in but I think they'll probably hold off on him now until next year given that he's wrestling at Wrestlemania.
Vader has been rumored to go in too, and with his recent declaration that he's been given 2 years to live then it would be in WWE's interest to induct him sooner rather than later.
Rick Rude has been another heavily rumored name to go in this year, and that's another worthy name that's well over due.
DDP is the other big favorite for this years class. Again there's no denying that DDP's well worthy of an induction. Even if he hadn't had an excellent wrestling career (which he has), the fact that he's essentially saved the lives of Jake Roberts and Scott Hall is enough to warrant him an induction.
So what are your thoughts on Kurt Angle going into the Hall of Fame? Who else do you see possibly going in this year? Who would you like to see inducted this year?
