Posted by on Sunday, October 20th, 2013


- Below is the video that was shown at last night’s TNA Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Kurt Angle:

- Around 250 fans plus TNA wrestlers and staff were in attendance for the Hall of Fame ceremony last night in San Diego.

- TNA President Dixie Carter did not attend the ceremony. The decision was made for her not to attend because of the current direction of her TV character.

- Karen and Jeff Jarrett were in attendance and sitting at the same table with Kurt Angle’s wife and family. Sting was also in attendance.

- Fans in attendance noted that Angle’s speech went between 2 minutes and 5 minutes. We know that others, including Magnus, spoke before Angle.

    He deserves being in the Hall of Fame don’t care if its WWE or TNA he has created history. WWE has other wrestlers in the Hall of Fame that never work for them an considering that he started with WWE he should be in the WWE Hall of Fame also sooner than later.

      There are a lot of guys in the wwe hall of fame that couldn’t touch. Kurt is a hall of famer in any true fans eyes, he’s destroyed his body giving 110 percent every damn time . he’s an amazing performer and most likely the only guy who ever helped tna and quite possibly one of greatest wrestlers ever,

      • Rene Ramirez

        so right an he is TNA an has raise the level on AJ Styles, Bobby Rude, and Samoa Joe hopefully be back in WWE but he himself stated that he is happy with TNA.

  • Ralph Ramos

    Both Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar have secured their spots as the 2 greatest pro wrestlers ever. An Olympic Gold medal and a UFC Heavyweight title attest to this. They had the greatest feud in WWE history, and probably the greatest matches ever.
    Today, I feel blessed to be able to watch him wrestle in person against Bobby Rood. I know this match will be an awesome one, and the rest of the card should provide a lot of excitement as well at Bound For Glory. Can’t wait!

    • Rene Ramirez

      Keep on with good positive comments for TNA its building up an will surely become a good company to keep an eye out for something better.

  • Ralph Ramos

    Gracias Rene. It truly was a great card. Angle and Rood had a good match, although Angle didn’t accept his Hall of Fame induction because he feels unworthy due to the personal demons he’s battling. Great card though.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA – TNA and Hall of Fame will NEVER go together…
