Samoa Joe’s accolades as a pro wrestler speak for themselves as he has done all there is to do as far as being an in-ring competitor is concerned. Joe won the NXT Title and was later placed on the main roster, even if he was told he shouldn’t expect to receive a call-up.
Samoa Joe has competed against the best of the best in the pro wrestling world and that includes Brock Lesnar. The two faced off at the WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view in 2017 for the WWE Universal Championship. While the match was a little over six minutes long, fans certainly loved it even if Joe lost the match.
While speaking to Matty Paddock of Daily Star, Samoa Joe talked about his time working with Brock Lesnar, stating that he and Brock share an unspoken gentleman’s agreement as both of them were ready to go to war whenever they faced off.
“I think it really comes down to the simple fact that, when Brock shows up for fight night, he wants to be in a scrap. He wants to go out there and he wants someone who is going to smash someone in the face, and he wants to smash somebody back! Brock knew he had that with me – he understood, and I understood I had to have that with Brock.
“It’s an attitude. He wants people to go in there and go after him. It is all of those things. I think that was the simplistic but major reason that we click the way we do; we step in the ring and we’re stepping in there for chaos and destruction to happen, and nothing less than that. I guess it’s some weird, unspoken gentlemen’s agreement we have!”
Samoa Joe also previously mentioned that Brock Lesnar doesn’t respect those opponents who can’t match up with his intensity, which is certainly the truth. Joe is currently the NXT Champion while Brock Lesnar made his return to WWE television back at WWE SummerSlam but hasn’t been seen since then.
