WWE Superstar Samoa Joe was recently interviewed by Vulture Hound to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Joe will take on AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam later this month (Sun. August 19, 2018). During the interview, “The Destroyer” was asked who his favorite talkers in the history of professional wrestling were.
Joe named WWE stars such as Ric Flair, Mankind and Jake “The Snake” Roberts:
“I like promo guys for, I’m sure like a lot of people, a lot of different reasons. Obviously, when it came to eliciting a reaction from an audience, especially at the time, I think Ric Flair is the guy who is constantly up there. Especially when you talk about speaking with passion and being able to convey a ton of emotion with his words and his body language.
“And you know, there’s other guys. I think Mick Foley, Mankind, had a brilliant delivery. Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, he’s also got…you know, when people look back and they understand nuanced abilities as far as promos come, he’s one of those guys. But the list is long.”
