TNA star Kurt Angle appeared on "The Big J Show" on KRSQ in Billings, Montana as hype for this Sunday's Bound for Glory PPV. You can hear the full audio at Among the highlights:

Dixie Carter and Hulk Hogan storyline: "I love the heel turn Dixie has made, it has helped a lot. Obviously we have had a few bumps in the road the last few months. We've been able to iron it out. Hogan is not under contract right now, but I have a feeling he will be back. I don't know when. He's an icon, he's a guy that has done so much for wrestling you always want him under contract, even if he can't wrestle anymore."

A possible WWE Hall of Fame induction: "I am very honored to be in the TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame, but any hall of fame that's out there especially the WWE Hall Of Fame you wanna be a part of it. That's where I started. I have to give them credit on my character development and for teaching me my skills. You always want to be a part of their Hall of Fame. It's legendary."

His support through rehab: "They have been awesome. I had to take some time out and clear my head and physically get better. TNA has been awesome. They have been 100 percent supportive. Dixie Carter has been amazing. The WWE Rehabilitation program has been awesome for me. My road to recovery is great. I'm really happy to be where I am right now."

Shore's Slant: Kurt sounds in good spirits and spoke frankly about his rehab. It's a fast interview that covers a lot of ground but it’s worth sitting through.
