Samoa Joe recently appeared with Eyes on the Game to talk about various topics. During the interview, he was asked what CM Punk said to him once WWE signed him. He noted that before he joined WWE, Punk was kind of championing for the company to bring him in. Once Joe signed with WWE, Punk told that, of course, the minute he leaves, Joe joins the company and so on. Joe added that he has always had a very interesting relationship with him and that they’re kind of like brothers who fight all the time.
When asked about wrestling John Cena 18 years ago, he noted that their match ultimately led to WWE hiring him. He noted that they were close friends early in his career and that they drove a lot of miles together. He added that it would be an absolute pleasure to reunite in the ring.
Joe also discussed AJ Styles and more. You can watch the interview here:
