TNA Wrestler Kurt Angle recently backed out of his scheduled appearance at the Dan Gable Museum Hall of Fame, where he was set to be inducted into their 2012 Class. The former WWE Champion said on his Twitter account earlier today that he missed the event due to obligations with his upcoming wedding.
It appears that WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco took great offense to Angle's absence, and auctioned off his award during the event for $250! When Angle found out about this, as well as some heated comments made by Brisco and fellow Hall of Famer Jim Ross, he took to Twitter and posted the following rant:
"Jerry Brisco made a mockery out of me and the Dan Gable Museum HOF by auctioning off my award. This award is a huge honor. (You) spit on me … Due to obligations I had with my wedding, I could not attend HOF. I even made a 10 minute video proudly accepting this great honor. I'm disappointed I couldn't go, but devastated Jerry gave away my award. Very classy, Jerry."
It appears that issues have since been resolved, as Angle updated his Twitter recently with the following:
Thank You All for Your Support. I Should Have Contacted Jerry personally. He Is My friend. We Will Resolve this. No Harm Done. Thk U!
