Kurt Angle Deserves To Headline WWE 2K18 And WrestleMania 34
January 19, 2017 - WWE
Monday on Raw, WWE announced Kurt Angle as a initial entrant in a 2017 WWE Hall of Fame. Angle is set to lead an considerable category that is rumored to include Ravishing Rick Rude and Diamond Dallas Page. Angle’s induction has naturally sparked rumors of a lapse compare with the promotion, something that hasn’t happened given a dual split ways 10 years ago. But WWE would be correct to check an in-ring lapse for WWE 2k season.
Last year, with assistance from final year’s Hall of Fame superstar Sting, WWE 2k16 sold an impressive 2.78 million units opposite all platforms. As WWE’s register of vital legends dwindles down, Angle is among a best choices as WWE 2k’s next print boy.
Newly minted WWE Hall of Famers competing during WrestleMania have a limited, despite positive, lane record. The final WWE Superstar to work a compare during WrestleMania a night after going into a WWE Hall of Fame was Ricky Steamboat in 2009. The following night, during WrestleMania 25, Steamboat dazzled fans in Reliant Stadium with a selected opening opposite Chris Jericho. The year prior, Ric Flair memorably wrestled his final compare in a WWE opposite Shawn Michaels during WrestleMania 24, only 24 hours after his induction.
Angle continues to contest on a eccentric circuit, though his story of neck surgeries, among others, make him a high-risk investment even as a part-time performer. But if Angle had to have one final match, WrestleMania 33 only doesn’t feel right.
