Samoa Joe Says Brock Lesnar Match Met His Expectations

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/07/17


Samoa Joe spoke with The Mirror for a new interview promoting SummerSlam on August 20th. The highlights are below:

On his his match with Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire lived up to his expectations: ďAside from the result, it was every bit the physical encounter I expected it to be. Brock is one of those special athletes, so everything in the ring is elevated to another level with him. Iím a very intense individual and I have no qualms in saying he definitely lives up to his hype as a very intense individual too. It was furious. It definitely lived up to the experience I thought it would be.Ē

On being presented as a genuine threat to Lesnar: ďYeah and itís also because Brock sees it that way. He knows what Iím capable of and what I can do in the ring. I think there is this false assumption that heís really tone-deaf to the rest of the world, when really heís probably, from what Iíve seen of how he has conducted himself, he is probably one of the most savvy businessmen in our industry, if not all combat sports. So he knew what he was getting into, who he was doing it with, and he understood the magnitude of what was going to go down and what kind of threat I presented to him. I think him being convinced if anything was what kind of lent more fire and hyper meaning to the match.Ē
