Between WWF/WWE, Japan and TNA, Kurt Angle has won 21 total championships. He is the only pro-wrestler in history to have won the WWE Championship, WWE's World Heavyweight Championship, the WCW Championship, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and the IGF's IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
Angle is also the only person to have been King of the Ring and King of the Mountain, as well as to have held both the WWE and TNA Triple Crowns. He has headlined numerous pay-per-view events for WWF/WWE and TNA, including both WrestleMania and Bound for Glory.
In 2004, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter inducted Angle into its Hall of Fame and later named him "Wrestler of the Decade" for the 2000s. He is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.
Former opponent and industry veteran John Cena said of Angle's legacy within WWE: "He is, without question, the most gifted all-around performer we have ever had step into a ring. There will never be another like him.
In a Q&A on his Facebook page, Angle talked about his first action figure: “It was pretty cool. My wife is kind of pissed at me because I never collected any of my action figures. I’m not much of a collector.
She’s trying to do it now and it’s costing us lots of money. It’s hard to find the old figures, but my wife has been buying them online. Rumors are I have over 150 different figures. We will see. Lol:)”.
