Samoa Joe Confident He’ll Win a World Title in WWE, Talks King of the Ring
July 22, 2021
Samoa Joe recently spoke with the Gorilla Position podcast where he discussed not winning a World Championship to this point in WWE. Below are some highlights of the interview with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On why he hasn’t won a World Title yet and if he believes he will:
“Racism,” Joe said before entering into a huge laugh. “I had to say that because I know some fans will say ‘we knew it, we knew it.’
“You know what, honestly, time and where we’re at in the story. In terms of what the future holds I’m pretty confident about it. Let me put it this way, I’ve faced a lot worse odds in overcoming things and I’m pretty confident of overcoming this one.”
On the upcoming King of the Ring tournament:
“I look at it like this as in terms of importance there are two varieties of it, Joe explains. “There’s what’s important to me and there’s what’s important to my legacy, which includes what the fans think.
“For my legacy and for what the fans who have followed me throughout my career, it’s very important. For me personally, I find a great amount of enjoyment in what I do. I’m able to do what I do around the world, this is my dream job and I love it.
“That being said, it’s also very important to me, damn it. Are you crazy? Of course, it’s important to me and my legacy. It’s important to both.”
