– Brian Fritz of Between the Ropes recently interviewed NXT Superstar Samoa Joe, which you can watch the full video for below. Below are some highlights.
Joe on if he lost his passion for wrestling before getting into NXT: “It’s funny, I was asked this earlier, and it was never about a loss of passion, but I can definitely see that point. In different places I was kind of stifled and it was more of a symptom of a larger issue. Even though you’re always responsible for what happens once end up inside the ring, sometimes you just can’t storm up the mountain with a mountain made of gravel. That’s kind of what I was faced with.”
Joe on getting called up to the main roster: “Time will tell. Stay tuned. That’s all I’m going to say, man. Let surprises be surprises, let fun be fun.”
