It’s still not known who will be inducting Kurt Angle into the WWE Hall of Fame come WrestleMania weekend, however the Olympic gold medalist has four names that would be ideal.
“I would say Austin, Cena, Undertaker and Brock Lesnar are my four picks,” Angle told Forbes.com. The pick of who gets to do the honors for Angle is in reality down to WWE, with some input from Angle as well.
In the same article, Angle had heaps of praise for 16-time World champion John Cena. “John Cena is the man. I don’t know anybody else who has gone 13 years on top…I’m not going to say he’s the greatest athlete in WWE history, but he will go down as the greatest of all time in WWE history,” Angle said.
Angle was the first person that Cena confronted during the Ruthless Aggression era on Smackdown back in June 27, 2002 when Cena answered Angle’s open challenge. Kurt won the match, but a great showing from Cena was the beginning of many things to come.
“He has been the staple of sports entertainment for the last 11 years. The incredible thing about John, John has never been known, personally for all of us, as a fighter. He’s not a guy who’s going to to throw fists and mix it up. But what he has been able to endure for 12, 13 years. Nobody has ever done that,” Angle concluded.
