As we noted earlier on the site, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels told ESPN in a recent interview that he thinks he could tell a great story in a match with former NXT Champion Samoa Joe if he returned to the ring for one more match.
“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. We have contrasting styles. 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.”
Joe took to Twitter to comment on Michaels’ praise. He posted this:
I'll be your huckleberry. https://t.co/5Fp7RsJAFL
