  1. Please…please God don’t say he is never going to wrestle again for wwe…I just …i just need to see him in wwe wrestling again.

    But yeah was very surprised and happy to hear this, one of THE all time best and well deserved.

    Also for celebrity wing it shouod be Muhammad Ali or Lenny from motorhead.

  2. I’m sure he’ll do at least one more match, since he’s still in pretty good shape for his age. Who knows… it might even be during that Wrestlemania weekend. I definitely see him getting involved in one of the matches, since he will be there. Regardless, he deserves the induction. One of the most solid wrestlers during his run in the WWE. Hell, even in TNA he still put most of the younger guys to shame.

  3. A couple weeks too early in my opinion. He could have entered the Rumble at #30 (imagine the pop), and then could have been announced on Raw as a member of the HOF. Now if he’s in the Rumble, it won’t be a surprise.

  4. It wouldn’t be a good idea vs. Brock, but he could be in the Rumble without really having to do any risky spots at all.

  5. I may be just be giving into my nerd fantasies but what if he ever faced off against Nakamura? Doubt that will happen but I think Angle would be a great fit in NXT working with the developmental talent while giving the brand a credible look to bolster up their roster.
