The Samoan Submission Machine spoke with Yahoo Sports regarding his return to the squared circle, and how his movement to SmackDown Live could be a game changer for the WWE. When asked who he thinks potential matchups could be, the Destroyer put EVERYONE on notice:
You look up and down that roster and it’s a laundry list of a lot big-time matchups and a lot of first-time matchups. It starts with A.J. Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. Then it’s Randy Orton, it’s Rusev. I’ll fight both of The Bludgeon Brothers at the same time. You look at that locker room and you’d be hard pressed to find a match you wouldn’t want to see me in.
Joe seems to have been suppressing a lot of anger. Makes sense considering he’s been with the company almost three years and still hasn’t competed at a Royal Rumble or a WrestleMania. Another interesting question asked by Yahoo was how he feels about the crowd’s response to him. More often then not, he gets cheered, especially when standing across from Roman Reigns. Here’s what Joe said on the matter.
I don’t think it’s anything I didn’t expect. I’m not out there lying to anybody. I’m out there telling the truth. You may not like the way I deliver the truth, you may take umbrage with the way I handle most of my conflicts, but that’s the way I do business. If we’re in a fight, we’re in a fight all of the time. It doesn’t stop just because the cameras are off. I’m going to come at you however I can. Roman knows how I play this game and its nothing he or the fans shouldn’t expect. It shocks me that people are still shocked that I behave this way.
NO ONE IS SAFE.
