The second annual TNA Hall of Fame banquet took place Saturday night from the Grand Ballroom at San Diego Marriott Mission Valley. This year’s banquet was focused on the induction of Kurt Angle, the second member of the company’s Hall of Fame.
- Attendance was estimated to be under 300 fans along with TNA talent and staff. There was a 3 course meal included.
- Dixie Carter did not attend to follow along with her new heel character, while Jeff and Karen Jarrett were there and sat with Kurt’s wife, Giovanna, and their family.
- Sting, last year’s inaugural inductee, was also there and delivered a speech. Other workers that spoke included Samoa Joe and Magnus.
- Angle’s acceptance speech was short.
We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Kurt on a phenomenal career, whose legacy is still being written. Angle is the best worker of a generation and will go down as one of the greatest to ever step foot in a pro wrestling ring. It’s been an honor and a privilege to cover so many of his matches.
