Every year, the WWE adds several superstars to their Hall of Fame the day before WrestleMania. Huge names have been added in the past such as Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ric Flair, and Edge.

Recently, former WWE superstar Kurt Angle has said in an interview with Digital Spy that he hopes one day he will follow those names and be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

He said: "I'll believe the hype when I decide to talk to WWE. I haven't. We were going to have some type of meeting last year, unfortunately it got cancelled. We really haven't spoken. I don't expect them to speak to me until my contract's up and I haven't really gone after them to talk to them.

"Somewhere along the line it'll happen, I just don't know when. Would it be an honour to be in the WWE Hall of Fame? Yeah, it's an incredible honour. Would it kill me if I wasn't? No, it wouldn't. The most important thing to me is being in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, which is Olympic wrestling. That's where my legacy truly is. It would be nice to be on the WWE Hall of Fame - it'll happen, I just don't know when."

The 47-year-old also said he is very proud that his former TNA friends, Sting and Samoa Joe, have managed to find success in the WWE. He said: "I'm not surprised. Or the Dudley Boyz, or James Storm. There is so much talent in TNA that could be on the main roster in WWE. The problem with TNA is not talent.

"Whether we've had the budget the last couple of years... we spent a lot of money and that hit the company pretty hard. We made some good decisions, we made some bad decisions. But overall, TNA survived and they tried to make that comeback again to where they were in 2009."

Angle even said himself that it is possible he would come back to the WWE again at some point in the future.

He said: “We’ll see. Would it be a possibility? Yeah. I’m not ruling out anything. I know that next year I will take off and then we’ll see where it goes. I have spoken to TNA about possibly coming back someday. That’s still on the table. The way TNA has treated me the last nine years, I can’t throw them away.

“Whether it’s TNA or WWE – or I could end up doing something myself. I have a match in March with Rey Mysterio… it’ll be kind of nice just to promote myself and wrestle guys like Rey.”
