Wrestling star Kurt Angle will be inducted along with several other professional wrestling stars as the Wwe Hall of Fame 2017 ceremony takes place this Friday evening. Fans will be anxious to see what the former WWE champion has to say during his big speech, as well as what is said during the other speeches by the newest 2017 class members. Luckily, the show will be available for WWE fans to watch live streaming online, just two days ahead of the huge "WrestleMania 33" PPV scheduled for Sunday. Here are the latest details on how to watch and who is going into the Hall of Fame.

WWE HOF Class for 2017

Headlining tonight's 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Class will be Olympic gold medalist and former champion Kurt Angle. While he spent the latter portion of his career wrestling with TNA Impact Wrestling, Angle will make his return to the stage at tonight's ceremony. A man who won't be there, but who was one of the legends of the "WWF" days, is former Intercontinental champion Rick Rude.

He'll be posthumously inducted into the hall on Friday evening.

Also scheduled to be inducted tonight into the Hall of Fame will be former "SmackDown" General Manager and manager of talents such as Mark Henry, Theodore Long.

In addition, "The Glamazon" Beth Phoenix, the legendary Rock N' Roll Express, and former WCW/WWE star Diamond Dallas Page will be finally inducted for their contributions to the business over the years.

In addition, the annual "Warrior Award" will be given out to a heroic competitor, as former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand will receive the honor. LeGrand was paralyzed during a college football game but has gone on to keep fighting and providing positive encouragement to people all over the world.

There will also be several other big names from the professional wrestling world on hand to help induct these stars. Among them will be former WWE manager and commentator James E. Cornette, former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, and former WWE "Raw" and WCW personality Eric Bischoff. It's expected there will be plenty of WWE stars in attendance in the audience as well.
