samoa joe

2017 was a huge year for Samoa Joe. He got called up to the WWE main roster, and he also challenged Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title in the main event of the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view.

Joe brought the fight to Brock Lesnar like no one before him, and during a recent chat with the In This Corner podcast, the former NXT Champion noted that knew he had to bring everything he had when he stepped in the ring.

“Brock is a guy who kind of feeds off of emotion, and if you come out and you’re flat and you’re not putting out what he is putting out, he’s going to eat you alive. That has never been an issue with me.”

Samoa Joe went on to say that working with Brock Lesnar is like competing in a real fight, and if you don’t know how to deal with him Lesnar will take advantage.

“If we are going to be in the ring together, Brock knows we are coming for a fight. I mean that literally and figuratively. There is no pulling anything with Brock. If you show signs of weakness, he’s an apex predator and he’s going to pounce on it and he’s going to attack and overwhelm. You have to know how to deal with it when you are in there with Brock,” Joe said. “He is a person who is going to accept nothing but the very best and if you don’t bring the very best, he’ll have no problems doing everything he can to absolutely wipe you out.”
