WWE has officially announced the first inductee for the Hall of Fame Class of 2017. It's former WWE Champion Kurt Angle. I had held out hope that he would be going in this year. I'm glad to see that it's going to happen Angle is certainly worthy of being the first ballot pick for the HOF.

When the matches were over, Kurt stuck around to do meet-and-greets in the ring with fans. Chad and I split the cost and got the photo opp. We chatted for a moment before posing for the pic. Although the encounter was brief, it was an honor to meet someone so accomplished in not just professional wrestling, but an Olympic champion too.
I was recently asked on a My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast what faction would I create with WWE Superstars. My answer was Dolph Ziggler, Charlotte and American Alpha managed by Kurt. I'd love to see him stick around in some capacity after the ceremony.
Congrats Kurt. I look forward to his induction and am still holding out hope that I might get to see it in person.
