Samoa Joe Responds To Shawn Michaels’ Comment To ESPN

– As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels recently participated in a interview with ESPN and mentioned Samoa Joe as someone he would be interested in facing if he returned to WWE for one more match.

Check out the original highlight from Michaels below:

“I look at Samoa Joe and I’ve told him a number of times that I see his stuff at NXT and think to myself, ‘Man, I could have a great deal of fun with you.’ He’s a guy I have sort of enjoyed, and one of those sleeper guys that no one talks about,” Michaels said. “We have contrasting styles. I get that everybody wants to see me and AJ or Seth or Dolph [Ziggler]. From my standpoint, I think really telling a great story out there [is most important]. I could do it with a guy like Samoa Joe. His stuff looks really good, and sometimes he just looks like he’s beating the tar out of somebody.”

Samoa Joe then took to Twitter and issued the following response to The Heartbreak Kid:

I’ll be your huckleberry. https://t.co/5Fp7RsJAFL

WWE Hall Of Famer Larry Zbyszko Recalls Hulk Hogan Asking Him For Advice, His Take On What Killed WCW

– WWE Hall Of Famer Larry Zbyszko was recently interviewed by Hannibal TV about his thoughts on fellow Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan, check out the highlights below:

His thoughts on Hogan’s lawsuit victory against Gawker:

“In 20 years he’ll start collecting and if they have any money after all the appeals, he’ll probably be dead. To be honest with you, I never think about the Hulk. When the Hulk came around, I was doing my Bruno thing. They brought Terry in because they needed a big guy for Andre to beat up. So after about six, eight months of Andre beating the snot out of Hulk, he came up to me one day and said ‘You’re my hero brother, give me some advice I’m getting tired of getting beat up by Andre every night. Because I’m just his whipping boy.’ And I gave him the advice, I said, ‘Hey you’ve been here in the WWWF, getting beat up by Andre every night. The best thing for you is you’re a big guy, you can move — just get the hell out of here and go to a different territory.’

“He listened, he left, and he went to the AWA and that’s where they gave him a break, turned him into a baby face and people — things were changing. Then our paths never really crossed after that, and I think in the beginning Terry was a nice guy, but I think as years went by, I think he got a little too big in the head for a while. It bit him in the ass. Some other guys did that too, Lex Lugar was kind of a narcissistic ego kind of guy, then when something bad happened to him you kind of laugh and are like, ‘Hey, karma brother.’ Not that they’re bad guys, he’s probably a much better person now because he brought hell upon himself when he got a real prima donna head. But I didn’t deal with guys like that.”

On Hogan in WCW:

“I didn’t really deal with him… Hulk we were getting him ready for the Goldberg transition thing. I never really dealt with Hulk, Hulk was a good manipulator and [Eric] Bischoff kinda fell for it. Unfortunately Hulk kind of swerved Bischoff into giving the farm away where too many guys got not only a big contract, but the clauses were they could do whatever they wanted. So they killed the programming.”

Xavier Woods Talks Breaking Tag Record, “Making Sure” Kofi Becomes WWE Champion

– WWE Superstar Xavier Woods recently participated in a interview with Sporting News to help promote this year’s Royal Rumble, check out the highlights below:

On officially breaking Demolition’s tag record:

“You’re never sure. Raw is a live show and, as we always say, anything can happen at any given moment at any given time. It was a terrifying day and a terrifying show.”

On the controversial “Black Excellence” tweet:

“Essentially, it’s just saying, for us, when we were little, there weren’t a lot of people who looked like us who were in a role of being a champion on the shows that we watched. We’re essentially saying we’re very excited to look the way we do and to give kids that sort us inspiration. And not only for people who look like us but kids who look any type of way that they can say, ‘oh, you can be a champion regardless of who you are, what you look like, what background you came from, what language you speak.’”

On Kofi Kingston as WWE Champion:

“It’s not that I want Kofi Kingston to become champion,” Woods said. “I will make sure that Kofi Kingston becomes champion. He’s a man that deserves it. We don’t speak in maybes, ifs, ands or buts. We speak in declarative, demonstrative statements.”
