Current WWE superstar Samoa Joe recently sat down with the Press of Atlantic City to promote WrestleMania next weekend. He discussed a number of topics, including his run so far in WWE as well as what his long term goals are.
He was asked a number of questions, and answered them as follows:
How perfectly does the “Destroyer” monicker fit you?
SJ: “I think it’s very, very perfect. I was kind of tasked with a mission, and whenever I’ve been given a mission at any point in my career I’ve fulfilled it. Right now, my mission is to run through the WWE roster, wreck as many people as possible in the most efficient fashion. Me being called the ‘Destroyer’ is a monicker I seek to live up to.”
Your runs against Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura were some of the best matches NXT has ever seen. How proud are you of the work you put in with those guys?
SJ: “Tremendously. Obviously (despite) whatever differences manifested our having those matches. Finn Balor is somebody I’ve known for over a decade, Shinsuke Nakamure is somebody I’ve known for over a decade and had a hand in their emergence as global superstars. So to come full circle and face them at NXT in front of jam-packed arenas, there’s kind of a special twinge of satisfaction that goes with that.”
Now that you’re here and you’ve accomplished quite a bit in NXT and now on the main roster, what is the goal for you?
SJ: “The goal is gold. I think that goal has never really changed. I’ve been a champion everywhere I have gone and WWE will be no different. I will be a champion here. I will capture as much gold as humanly possible. That’s my mission right now.”
What can we expect from Samoa Joe going forward?
SJ: “I like to give people the formula. I will show up, I will wreck somebody’s shop, I will walk away and I will show up again and kind of rinse, dry and repeat. There’s nothing really complicated about what I do. Expectations shouldn’t be anything different from that. I’m here. I’ve made my statements and now it’s time to deliver. So here we go.”
Joe also discussed WrestleMania, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins and more.
