The Daily Star has a new article online featuring quotes from Kurt Angle. Below are the highlights:

Brock Lesnar's final UFC fights; subsequent return to WWE:

“His last two fights, it wasn’t really the true Brock I know. I believe he never got back to 100% after his illness. He did the fights for the money. Don’t get me wrong, the other guys were awesome.

“He knew he was going back to WWE. Brock was as good an amateur wrestler as he was a pro-wrestler. As good as he was a pro-wrestler, he was just as good a pro footballer. As good as he was a footballer, he was just as good an MMA fighter. I’ve had the privilege of working a main event at Mania with him and I’ve sparred with him.

“Brock’s athleticism and wits amaze me. He has the whole package. He’s a marketer’s dream – one of a kind.”

Not ruling out a return to WWE:

“I’m really happy [in TNA]. It’s why I signed a long-term deal a year ago. The number one question I get asked is: When are you going back to WWE? I don’t plan on it but I never say no. I am treated well. I have more freedom to do other things too, so it’s a win-win for me and for Impact Wrestling.
