This WWE Hall of Famer has some high praise for this talent.

WWE Hall of Famer and current Raw General Manager Kurt Angle made his first appearance at a professional wrestling event in 1996 with his in-ring debut following in 1998.

He signed a contract with the WWE that same year and participated in his first televised storyline in March 1999.

Angle was a six-time world champion (four reigns as WWF/WWE Champion, one as WCW Champion and one as WWE's World Heavyweight Champion), a one-time United States Champion, one-time Intercontinental Champion, one-time European Champion, one-time Hardcore Champion and one-time WWE Tag Team Champion.

He left WWE in 2006 but returned last year to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Angle recently did a Q&A on his Facebook page. During the session, he made it known that he has high expectations for former TNA World Heavyweight Champion EC3, who has wrestled Angle on several times in Impact Wrestling.

EC3 began his professional wrestling career in 2002, and wrestled for several promotions beginning in 2006. In July 2006, he signed a contract with the WWE where he wrestled as Derrick Bateman.

He was assigned to WWE's developmental territories Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, where he won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship with Johnny Curtis. During his time with WWE, he competed in the fourth and fifth seasons of NXT.

On May 17, 2013, he was released from his contract. He joined TNA Wrestling in September of that year. He is a two-time TNA World Champion.

Here is what Angle wrote on his official Facebook page: "He's coming! The kid's got a huge future in WWE."

Angle was asked if his epic Street Fight with Shane McMahon at the King of the Ring 2001 PPV (pay-per-view) event was his greatest match.

"It was incredible. But it was what it was...a street fight. Me vs. Shawn Michaels [WrestleMania 21], Taker [No Way Out 2006], or Chris Benoit 2003 Royal Rumble are among my greats."

When asked by a fan about who would win a Last Man Standing Match between Braun Strowman and Andre the Giant (in his prime), Angle wrote:

"That's comparing apples and oranges. Honestly? Braun. Andre was amazing in the ring, but Braun is incredibly athletic for his size. He's very explosive. I'd give the edge to Braun."

Finally, when asked about The Shield and Dean Ambrose returning to in-ring action from injury, Angle noted that, "Yes, Shield will be back someday. Dean is healing nicely. He will be out for a bit, but knowing Dean, he will be back relatively fast. That's all I can say."
