Perhaps one of the biggest names in the world of professional wrestling today, not to show up on the main roster in the WWE is Samoa Joe. Although he made his mark in various other territories, he still has not been elevated to the main event status. He recently sat down for an interview with the Forbes magazine.
He touched on different topics, most notably his dream match against Brock Lesnar at next year’s WrestleMania.
When asked who he would like to come on top in the match this Sunday between Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton, he said that he wanted Brock Lesnar to come on top for his own selfish reason of wanting the beast to carry forward his momentum, so that he gets a chance to have a match at WrestleMania this year. He was asked the same question about who he would want to face at WrestleMania 32 and he immediately responded Brock Lesnar.
Although there has been no talk of elevating Samoa Joe to the main roster, it might happen sometime soon. With recent reports of Paul Heyman negotiating more dates and him wanting to get involved with story lines, this report might point at something. When Paul Heyman was asked who he would like to advocate for, pat came his reply, Samoa Joe.
This has been a match that we have all been waiting to see! It could be a clash of the beasts, or maybe WWE could create a storyline similar to the one with CM Punk and Brock Lesnar. It is known that Brock works very few dates and after Summerslam, he might return for the next biggest pay per view event, Survivor Series. WWE have recently been teasing us about the possibility of matches that we would like to see, superstars we would like to see and the stipulations. They recently released a footage of Brock calling out Goldberg as a promotional material for the WWE 2k17 game.
They did tease us the same way with HHH and the Rock. Make this happen!
