Joe has been praised for his commentary work and, based on what he said on WWE’s The Bump, it looks like he has no plans to step in the ring anytime soon.
Joe was asked if he’s had media aspirations before he started working on Raw commentary late last year.
“I’ve had zero media aspirations,” Joe said. “I pretty much kind of just drift through life and just let things kind of hit me as they come. I got on the commentary table and it was funny, when the lights shined on me and I started to hear the angels sing, I said to myself ‘I think this might be a good fit, I think this might work out.’ I remember I put on the headset and Vince came through and he goes ‘I don’t know why, it feels right.’ I go, ‘I know, right?’ It’s been a really weird journey and I’m still on it, it’s a quest. I’m just trying to take the world along with me.”
Joe did not say when he plans on returning to the ring or if commentary is what he will do going forward.
Joe also gave his thoughts on The Bump theme song, his debut at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable in 2015, Adam Cole vs. Keith Lee, the origins of the Coquina Clutch and more.
