The WWE has announced the first official member of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017 and that is none other than the first Olympic Gold Medal winning superstar, Kurt Angle. Starting his career at the 1999 Survivor Series, he went on to become a multiple time World Champion for the company.  

The announement that he’s going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017 is definitely welcome news for Kurt’s fans. Much like Joe Montana who, after leaving the Kansas City Chiefs to sign a one day contract with the San Francisco 49ers so he could retire as a member of the organization that made him famous, Kurt receiving the ultimate accolade from the company that gave him his big break is one hell of a way to end his in ring career. And wrestling being wrestling, could we see one more match with him involved in the Royal Rumble?
