Kurt Angle announced as the second inductee in the TNA Hall of Fame

Kurt Angle

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.
