On Kurt Angle’s return and whether he’d like to have one more match with Angle:

HHH: I think it’s awesome that Kurt is back in the ring. When Kurt first came back to the company we said, “Let’s kind of take it one step at a time and see where things go.” It’s funny, we had just started a process where we were taking Kurt through the medical, making sure he was healthy and all of those things. Coincidentally, totally a coincidence, Kurt and I had those conversations that started that process and then all of a sudden there was this situation where there was a need and his results had just come in. It was just a coincidence in many ways and I am happy for Kurt. To see where he is at in his life, to see the turn around and to see him come back home and get the response that he’s had and have moments like he is right now, it’s awesome. Would I love to get in the ring with Kurt and do something with Kurt? Absolutely, if it’s right. If it’s right for everybody. If he continues to want to stay in the ring, if I do and if it’s right for everybody… absolutely. Kurt is one of the best ever. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody pick it up as fast and become so good, so fast as Kurt. I am happy to see where he’s at in his life. It’s awesome.
