So Many Memories: Kurt Angle's Tremendously Entertaining Hall Of Fame Speech

So Many Memories: Kurt Angle's Tremendously Entertaining Hall Of Fame Speech

The Kurt Angle Hall of Fame speech to end all hall of fame speeches. Oh it's true. It's damn true!

Kurt Angle led the class of 2017 at WWE's Hall of Fame ceremony and delivered one hell of an acceptance speech.

I think I speak for every child of the Attitude Era when I say that when Kurt Angle was making his name in the WWE I absolutely despised him. But of course that's what made the Olympic gold medal winner so bloody good. His character - not to mention his fantastic wrestling ability - made him one of the most memorable superstars to ever grace the WWE ring and, last night, he delivered yet again.

In a speech that stretched to over 15 minutes, Angle regaled the audience with some of his greatest hits, before dousing himself with milk as the crowd (lovingly) chanted 'You Suck!'

Great stuff.

The WWE also put together a highly entertaining video, where various big names discuss what made Angle brilliant and, yes, it includes the milk truck scene.

Here's his full acceptance speech for your enjoyment.

Meanwhile, Teddy Long was also inducted last night but amazingly did not change the main event of Wrestlemania to a tag team match. However on this occasion such a decision may actually have been an improvement to a card that pretty much nobody is really enthused about.
