While speaking to Pop Culture, Samoa Joe was asked about WWE raiding indie promotions for talent and revealed that he’s totally okay with it because that talent probably wasn’t being paid what they were worth.
“Hey, you know whose fault it is, that your favorite wrestler got bought out? The company he was working for, cause they were too cheap to pay him what he was worth. So he should get paid what he’s worth, and if WWE comes and pays him what he’s worth, that’s on your sorry ass. Get the money right. And start paying these dudes.”
Joe also spoke about people who have an issue with WWE raiding talent and told them they can kiss his ass.
“There are too many crazy talented dudes out there that aren’t getting paid, and if you have a problem with WWE making those dudes rich, you can kiss my ass. Cause those dudes deserve to be rich, cause they’re talented as hell.”
Lastly, Joe commented on WWE’s aggressive promotional and business tactics being the reason they are at the top.
“It’s funny because people are like, ‘oh, well that’s kind of messed up,’ No. No. That’s how you win. That’s why they’re the number one company in the world. You go out there and you get the best dudes. You don’t get mad at a tiger for being a tiger.”
