"Yes, he looks like a Superstar. Randy Orton being back in the WWE, that's the best news I've heard in a couple of years. I mean, Randy is really special. He's an unbelievably talented individual and I think WWE really needed him," Angle said on the latest Kurt Angle Show podcast. "He does look great. I'm just happy he's back because he really struggled with that surgery. Yeah, wasn't getting better he was really frustrated and I'm just glad that he was able to make it back."
