Kurt Angle went off on the decision on Twitter: “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. U Spit on Me …Due to Obligations I Had With My Wedding, I Could Not Attend HOF. I Even Made a 10 Min Video Proudly Accepting this Great Honor. I’m Disappointed I Couldn’t Go, But Devastated Jerry Gave Away My Award. Very Classy Jerry.”
