- Kurt Angle posted a blog on his official site regarding his upcoming induction into the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania weekend on Friday, March 31st. He noted that he didn't watch wrestling before winning the Gold medal at the Olympics in 1996.
"I loved entertaining the WWE Universe, whether they loved me or hated me. Wrestling guys like Stone Cold, Rock, Undertaker, HHH, Randy Orton and John Cena, among others, was so much fun, and challenging to say the least. To be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame shows the impact I had in only 6 1/2 years, a very short career. So thank you WWE and WWE Universe. I'm very grateful to be among the very best. I'm humbly grateful. Oh, it's damn true!"
