Kurt Angle Wants Steve Austin as His HOF Inductor, Says He Hopes WWE Recognizes His TNA Career, More

Kurt Angle recently spoke with Justin Barrasso for Sports Illustrated Extra Mustard about his WWE Hall of Fame announcement; you can read a few highlights below:

Kurt Angle reveals why he wants Stone Cold Steve Austin to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame:
“That’s a no-brainer. I had just started with WWE and had a program with Austin right after I beat Rock for the world title. I had a quick skit with Stephanie and Triple H, and then it was right on to Austin. We had some memorable feuds and some very funny segments, so he is at the top of my list.”
Angle talks about the chemistry the two had and the influence Austin had on his career:
“Steve was one of the most giving individuals. He took me in and allowed me to shine even when it was still his time. I don’t ever compare myself to Stone Cold. He is the guy who elevated wrestling to a level that nobody ever went before, but he enabled me to show my talents when he very well could have said no. He was a very giving individual, and he is one of the guys who had the biggest impact on my career.”
Angle says he hopes WWE will recognize his TNA career:
“The WWE Universe is different from the rest of the world. Even though I was wrestling all these great matches, most WWE fans didn’t see those matches. That makes me sad, but it would be nice if WWE somehow got my TNA library, as well as AJ Styles’s, Samoa Joe’s, and Bobby Roode’s so people can see the stuff we did. Those guys will continue to have great matches, but we also had some great ones in TNA.”
