It’s true, it’s true. As announced this week on “Monday Night Raw”, Kurt Angle will headline the 2017 Hall of Fame class. Angle debuted for WWE in 1999 and stayed there nearly seven years before moving on to TNA. His run there lasted until early 2016 and featured a lot of great matches in its own right. While it’s very rare to have TNA mentioned on WWE TV, Angle would like to change that up a bit.

Shortly after his induction, Angle spot with Sports Illustrated on a variety of topics, including his run in TNA. Angle had the following to say on the possibility of WWE acknowledging his time with the other company:

“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.”

While I don’t think there’s any chance at all of Angle’s TNA run being mentioned, it’s nice to hear him be so fond of his time there. Angle certainly did have some great moments in TNA and I’d love to see some of them again. He had a big hand in making a lot of the names over there and that history should be remembered.
