While speaking with For The Win, Samoa Joe elaborated on why exactly he wears a towel to the ring and revealed that it is inspired by boxing icon Mike Tyson.
“I think partially it was the grapplers that I enjoyed wore a towel to the ring and they looked like they were ready to rock and roll,” said Joe.
“Mike Tyson used to come out with the towel poncho. I didn’t get the towel poncho. Just the towel. It’s something I just started to do and never stopped.”
Although Joe did not reveal where he gets his towels from, he said that he has a roster of them.
