Kurt Angle was announced as the second inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame yesterday during the Slammiversary pay-per-view.
The 44 year old Olympic gold medalist joined TNA Wrestling in 2006 after an eight year stint with WWE.
He made his TNA debut in October, a month after TNA President Dixie Carter announced that Angle signed a deal with TNA. His first match took place on IMPACT in November and then defeated Samoa Joe at the Genesis pay-per-view to end his undefeated streak.
During his time in TNA, Angle divorced from his wife Karen and she ended up marrying Jeff Jarrett, a scenario which created some real-life drama behind the scenes.
Angle had a successful run in TNA in terms of winning titles, becoming the TNA World champion on five separate occasions, the tag team champion twice – with Sting and AJ Styles – and even won the X Division title.
The former champion will be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame the night before Bound For Glory pay-per-view.
