You know kind of the first the. Will just be some more general. The ring so I was. I was for my first show. The problem was that my first indy shows you know all of a sudden. If you look at motorcycle and say hey. Joyner show, and then it was a couple of other states motors, and then you kind of grew I didn't change my name because I didn't want to miss work. If you belong won't smoke JOE NOT FUCKING Lance Super Sabre. Ever. Been I didn't even I didn't even get a chance to really flesh out what learning to be in like I said Ball. A couple of years later I was like what else. Man Let's talk about that match with Kimiko. Bosch was the first time you worked with him. That shot and ring of honor. Yet I time ever We had met previously a couple times when I was over in Japan just real resale. Hey, how you doing meetings and then You know when we got into New York and we got down. Man That was a hell of a a match was I mean. It was just a great match, a hell of a damn match so obviously mutual respect on both sides. Had He seen you from You know film pastor knew who and what you were. you respect It was fighting. Kabashi, coming into America you know he really saw that nobody knew who the hell he was, and he also thought that you know he wasn't going to reaction. He thought he was going to be booed. Like Mr Fuji or something I. Mean That was really just perception of what would happen if he'd never been over here before. And I'm trying to explain to them in my somewhat conversation with Japanese that. Everybody out there knows you. Everybody knows who you are. Trust me.

That that that that fan reaction was enough to convince them that all right these people here to see me and I mean we had a lot of it was brutal typical, but you know when you get those opportunities and guys. Are you take advantage of in Boston? A great vibe in that little arena we're we're we're. Was that because I'm in a couple of thousand people there. When the biggest place in the world, but man atmosphere was bad ass, and of course like you said the soon he came to the curtain. They knew who he was. knew exactly what they're getting in.

"The year end awards were all rightfully delivered to who deserve them even though there could be arguments made on just about every category. What an unbelievable year for all things next tea but let's not live in the past? No no we Shan't let's look ahead to twenty twenty. I'm excited to see what the tea flavored surprises are in the royal rumble match. We saw glimpse of it last year. I Know Adam Cole competed. If it wasn't last year it was two years ago. My memory is just mush But you can bet on it that we'll have a presence at royal rumble and more than unlikely going forward. Here's to hoping there will be an annex t match of some sort or multiple at Wrestlemainia But you know the royal rumble. Match particularly cularly is chock full of surprises. At least the good ones are off the top of my head. I hope keithly continues his run from survivor series into the royal rumble physically. Speaking just on that level alone keithly looks like he belongs in. WWe guys impressive. He is a terrifyingly talented altered athlete. And keithly really opened a lot of is of the. WWE Universe with his performance at survivor series. Coming down to the wire against the big dog Roman reigns keithly easily. Could continue to break out and in two thousand twenty. You've heard triple h say right here on the show. It's all about creating new stars at all times and opportunities. Unity's to be capitalized upon. And I think this is another opportunity. If not for keithly then for somebody else I would bet my bottom dollar that someone if if not multiple people from an xt will make massive impacts in the royal rumble matches in a few weeks And from the women's end of things I I mean I don't think I'm talking out of school when I say. I think it's pretty safe to assume SHANNA. bazars got her eyes on the women's Royal Rumble match. Shane had a massive night just like keithly at survivor series. I think Shayna in the women's royal rumble matching could be a legitimate contender. Give me. Shane Obeys Lert at wrestlemainia against anyone. Anyone sign me up cosign at Stanford. I'm here for it. We learnt here on after the bell on my very very special gift to you. D- excess that HP Shawn Michaels one of if not the greatest of all time has got his hands full helping shape shape annex t UK. So I have to Throw a little plug to my guys over there in Europe and X T U K take over Blackpool part art do this Sunday on. WB network the UK champion. Waltzer my affinity for watching him do what he does is no secret versus versus Joe. Coffee got a triple threat for the annex. T U K Women's Championship Kaley Ray. Tony Storm Piper Niven a big fan of Piper. What she does? I think this could could be a big night for her. I will be perfectly honest. I did not watch the first annexed takeover Blackpool because I had prior engagements but after hearing hearing the buzz that it created. I immediately sat down on my couch and watched and it was pretty frequent unbelievable so I will not be making that mistake again this week. So whatever you do in the Sunday make plans around annex t UK takeover Blackpool.

"Lana coming off of the very I smack down of the year twenty twenty which trust me I still have not adjusted to. I've been writing twenty nineteen on every bit of paperwork. I filled out since the new year. Sure but that has not stopped these smackdown train from moving forward as we barrel toward royal rumble so the next chapter in the fiend. Daniel Bryan Ryan's saga. I really dug it. I love this whole Daniel Bryan reawakening sort of thing I love Daniel Bryan just fearless just playing kamikaze Makasi sacrificing himself to try to take out the fiend so far to no avail but I have no doubt that at royal rumble the fiend Bray Wyatt versus Daniel Bryan for the universal championship will deliver But elsewhere on the show was kind of a weird show almost felt like everybody was sort of lulled into that weird period between Christmas and new years. When no one's sure what day it is or what's supposed to be happening and everyone kind of arrived by surprise at smackdown on Friday the whole day felt kind of off kind of weird but picked up steam thankfully and I felt like the night is a whole kind of kept that same theme? The show itself started it off with less than a bang. We saw a bit of a different side of the Ms. Ms Seems to continue to unravel before our very eyes. Courtesy of the fiend Bray Wyatt. I Love Bad Guy Ms Ms does anybody wants to like the MS MS as a human being is a likable guy. But as an onscreen character I love personally to be completely obnoxious. And over the top as pertains to ms and I think that's where Mrs Wheel Houses. So maybe this is a return to the dark side for Ms. Maybe it's just another chapter in the story being told I I as well as you will find out in the not too distant future but it was a big week of returns. We saw the Celtic Warrior. Shameless shameless return. After weeks of vignettes. It's amazing how some time off can really freshen up a superstar. We'd seen shameless wrestle. Everybody there was is to wrestle. Shameless has done just about everything there is to do in. WWE But absence makes the heart grow fonder the Celtic Warrior. who was a guest here? On after the bell a few weeks ago came back in phenomenal physical condition. And I'm excited for some of the matchups even though it's been what eight nine. Ten months since shameless was regularly on our screen screen I'm excited for him to to lock horns with some of the different superstars now on Friday night smackdown. Also we've got a very quick glimpse obs- to hearken back to the MS conversation of a returning. John Morrison I excited for John Morrison and to come back Very very interesting unique superstar the guy seemingly doesn't age I bumped into him backstage and he walked into the locker room and just just look like a rockstar movie star. It was pretty cool. I think Morrison's GonNa Bring another cool dimension. Hopefully it's a Friday night smackdown. I don't think anything official has been announced announced yet but it was a cool way to sort of reintroduce morrison thrown back to the days of MS and him tag teaming together and let's not forget that wonderful segment they used to produce the dirt sheet. Let's hope that doesn't come back because then I'm out of a job and I would be remiss to exclude another massive massive return to the blue brand this week. My next guests fresh off of some well deserved time away from the WWe universe but we are happy to have them back to my favorite dudes in the entire business. Jimmy and j the USOZ Jimmy. What's going on in Socorro? Oh Corso Busse Jay. How're you here? You're here finally there. We go welcome back welcome. They still haven't avenues. Dogs been a mini. It has man. I miss you guys. It's weird how you get used to life on the road and a TV and you and you always around the same dudes and then all of a sudden you guys disappear disappeared for a minute and it's like Whoa. There's this gaping hole and our businessmen. A month can feel like a year here. You know what I'm saying so I definitely feel like years has gone wrong with a little over five five months mass. Oh man we happen to be back or I'll tell you them was happy me. Ourself the boys in the locker room and the WWe universe all stoke that you're back in our line of work you don't get a ton of time off so a mask you what What did you guys do while while you were not under the bright lights of things? WWe Man you know what What we it was a whole lot of you know self reflecting a whole a Lotta prioritizes but most importantly it was mainly being with the family you know we never get a chance to be home only to be injured? You know. God forbid that happens but that's like the only actual time you actually get some time off man we was runnin. Horman running off. You had to take a step back and alike. Sit home. Home sits stealing hill you know. Yeah definitely like my brother. said he'll is the most important word. Let me ask you this. What was it like to have that time I am? You know looking inside yourself and stepping away from things. Well I mean you know how it is Manley Bliss. Remember you know we beings. We make mistakes Rousseau's make mistakes and everybody everybody know about it. You know what I'm saying when we do that. You know we never really had a chance to lake system because you say movement so fast you know we we home a day in half the next day you on the road again. You know. We're in five cities and four nights. Mansell road it just keeps on going so it's almost like you don't have time to address anything then you just move onto the next hale and that's exactly what it was those that's exactly what it was never really sat stealing. Got The realize you know when when you mess up it trickles down you know in the most people that To Asia close when the circle is your family.

You always moving forward and never have time to sometimes even enjoy what you're doing at the moment of course awesome and I think that's what it got hard. I think that's what it was.

You Bet you bet take time for yourself to slow down and that's exactly what we did took that time slowed down and now about how we come back. We look all young. We look like we got some rest. Go bags on the F.. As crazy crazy when a couple of good night's sleep will do for you. I don't know that hustle man they just see us on Monday and Friday and I think that's it man they think you wrestle for six minutes a week in living your best life if the rest of the time realizes the grind that goes with it right it all hits you like a ton of bricks. Obviously you guys can speak a lot more to this than I can. But you're playing this role all the time so even when you're supposed to be quote unquote normal or human. You don't necessarily have the luxury that goes with it and it. It wears on you week after week after week. I'll tell you what does host with nowhere in the world you can.

Television is massive. If this is huge there's some tumultuous stuff that has happened over the last five years between him punked in the. WWe See punk. You might know him from the guy that got his ass kicking them. MMA fight he was not that in wwe he was a champion. He was a stud.

"The hope is it will have them if not today. Then monday. Okay. Now, do you think RJ, do you think that your RJ brother RJ Barrett, was wearing pink and black because of Bret Hart last night? I may have something to do with it. Thank you be quite a moment j Barrett. The hitman. Oh my God, that was horrible RJ, bur. You know what? Michael Kay MC that same joke later today. Please do fantastic way. Let's make it a thing. Our keep relative states championship, Matt Samoa. Joe verses ricochet, Samoa Joe and ricochet. We were talking about Mazdas and bad acid that need to get wins. And as much as we love ricochet this needs to be one of those matches where he tries to fly around the ring. He gets plucked out of the sky thrashed because we need to be reminded who Samoa Joe is. I'm going with some. Oh, Joe, don't think they're going to do that. But I still gonna go, they're gonna go ricochet. It's interesting. You watch richocheting what you hope he doesn't get is the treatment that Joe got which like you show up and you're a big deal and everybody likes you. And when does it really means something? So for that to happen ricochet has to get wins this title would make sense for him. A win over some. Oh, Joe is is, is reasonable. And though I wish it started with Samoa Joe beating him down. More in him. Eventually overcoming Samoa Joe right? My guess is we won't get that we'll just get richocheting win. And then Samoa Joe trying to get back against him. But I'm gonna go see us. Ogle ricochet, geographically, though, isn't this a step down for Ricky shea 'cause he was just North American champion every now is United States. Greg. You're three for three on may Maget for that one. I'm gonna give Mitch moving right along role women's championship. Becky Lynch, verses Lacey. Evans. By the way, we haven't really discussed what the hell is Becky talking about when she implies the things about being willing to do whatever it takes backstage. What you know, becky's doing welcome to shoot. Yeah. Davies get warmed up for the next of his chip. Okay. Okay. For sure. But, but yeah. I don't know where she's going when she says, all that, like, that's it has it has totally rings of Bret Hart, having sunny days, definitely does. She keeps going there and the sort of fortunate though too. Right. Because when she branded herself the man, she was embraced, as like a feminist icon. And now she's calling other girls hose basically. Yeah. Slept on way to the time she's next week. Becky to come out with the whole train..

"Is it more valuable to do that, while you push guys like? Elias, and drew McIntyre and people like that. Or do you wanna put one of your very limited top spots on Samoa? Joe you know, it might be. And I don't know. But it might be more valuable as much as, as fans you and I, both would love to see some oh, Joe get utilized to the to the upmost that some oh, Joe can be utilized. It might be more valuable long-term to WWE to allow people to get some victories over this guy. So prediction for the US title at summer slam. Are we saying this match? In a rematch. Or is this sort of a one off and they move? They move both guys in a different spot. If richocheting wins, then I think this extends through summer slim. Extreme rules is an interesting, pay per view, extreme rules is the July pay per view, and extreme rules allows you to do, even if some oh, Joe were to win. You could have Rick. I think it would it would make a lot more sense of ricochet wanted to tell you the truth, if you know, the, but you could also do a stipulation match at extreme. Rules, have ricochet lose the non stipulation match it at at at stomping grounds. Then ricochet wins a stipulation match. But Somalia, Joe you know, you can't beat me one on one you needed kendo sticks or whatever happened at extreme roles a ladder match whatever it was. And then okay let's settle it at summer slam. And then at summer slam. You have ricochet getting that definitive win. And you've also then given it from you, given the summer to see what we were just talking about how did ricochet resonate. So if if, if Samoa Joe wins, I could also see this going to. Summer, slim. I could. Yeah, I could see it either way. And I think having Joe win clean over ricochet is a fine option to. I don't think it defines, Don ricochet irreparably. And you can tell a different kind of story with him and build up, Joe as a guy who's just having a US title rain, for the ages, and he's taking on a one challenger after another Cedric Alexander steps up. Ramos stereo comes back, the MS goes after him hack, build up. Braun strowman, eventually as can he finally unseat Samoa, Joe? And you can even have Joe win that one and use that to make Joe that threat to whomever. The universal champion is at the time come post wrestlemainia. You're from now. Like you could tell your story arc and all of a sudden, and I like the long term planning like this, where now you're saying, all right? You know, barring injuries, we want to enter may twenty twenty with Joe being this unstoppable force, whose finally about to get the shot at the universal championship whoever is holding it, which could be parlayed into Joe turning baby. Face to because fans like dominant dominant restaurants in that way. And he can morph along the way into someone who's winning clean, and gloating a little less, but still having a bravado. And confidence at attract that has always attracted fans to him dating back fifteen years. So there's a lot of ways you can go. That's why there's not a correct finish Sunday, but I think you want to take advantage of whichever finish you do and make sure it counts yet. Notably. Yeah. So we also have to tasty matches the new day KO and Sammy Zane. I don't know. There's a lot to say about that began Abeer against him. And she would be a good tech match. Yeah. I think so too. I think that it's a good opportunity for KO and Sammy's Zane to get the victory in the sense that Kofi Kingston being the champion is really what fuels the new day right now and biggie, and co and executor can afford to lose. I think, and it gives Sammy in Keio the opportunity to really, you know..

"It is seventy two degrees right now in the American standard cooling weather center. Going to be a high of eighty five today. The time is seven forty six. Stephen just found before. This. I support President Trump's efforts. I want him to be successful. Because when the president is successful. That means the United States is successful. That's what this is supposed to be about. I was found by the Lugar center. Senator Richard Lugar, a your icon. To be the most bipartisan Senator serving in the United States Senate. And so we want to work together. So that President Trump is successful. But I will also tell you this. We have to make sure that our military has everything they need to be successful at every turn that they have the equipment. They need to be safe that they are never ever in a fair fight. You can't trust Mike because he wants to cut defense spending directly against what secretary Mattis says that the first and biggest pay rate the biggest pay raise in nine years. He would have been against we want to stand with our men and women who if we do go into conflict that we have their back that Senator Joe Donnelly from the debate last night. Tony cats, a good TV with you. Samoa Joe is supposed to be here right now isn't could be delayed. If we comes and later, we'll get to him later. But the debate last night. That's right wrestling, we do it all here, folks. The Indiana Senate debate. It was something else. Now, by the way, again, a bit of front from Joe Donnelly, they're talking about military spending and the need for it, certainly not they're going along with his party. And and how they have been about military spending. You've heard me talk about the need for military spending. But this is the conversation about whether or not you would have engaged a spending Bill versus just the NBA just a military spend Bill, so I if you're talking about being opposed to a total spending Bill, well, sometimes you have to do that. When you actually stand on principle to the concept of too much spending. Right. That's a real issue. But you know, he gets to score some points. They're politically on that subject and Lucy Brenton the libertarian also made her voice known. I think the first thing that we have to do is go right to the founding fathers playbook friends to all allies tonight. Non it's the entangling alliances that brought us into World War One and World War Two and the Vietnam war if the entangling alliances with which put our sons and daughters, husbands, and wives. Brothers and sisters at harm American troops. Should not be fighting those wars why in the world are we giving money to foreign governments. So that they'll be at peace. What is it like ten million a day to Israel and eight million a day to Palestine, how do we even do that? When at home, we have people who are not eating food security in our country is absolutely an issue, and we should be talking about feeding our own people first before we start handing out money to foreign governments in the name of. Piece. It has certainly bodice. No peace well for Lucy Brenton. I think that again the attempt to score points in the idea of foreign aid versus taking care of American citizens is always a problem. I would ask Lucy Brenton when you say we're giving eight million dollars today to Palestine who in the world is that what Palestine are you possibly and in any way, referring to because well, it doesn't exist.

"This was probably meant to be a one off, but Mark my words, true TV is going to become a regular fixture on smackdown with the reaction that had got.

Fans are just tired of dance stuff going on in WWE. All. Together, but. They loved this seven second dance bring and Carmella is perfect for because Carmella has gone from somebody who would have laughed at our truth to somebody who's buying into our truth. I think Carmella is the only person who could somehow at authenticity to what Archer is doing. She's actually making it seem like she buys into this whole world like she does think it's funny, but she also doesn't. She doesn't think it's fake. You know what I mean? When the car the character of Carmella when you watch her, she it's working because she's sitting there believing in what are true is selling, and it makes us as fans feel okay, would buying in to everything are true this selling regardless of how ridiculous it is. And I mean a good God is that guy in good shape. You know he he could be thirty five years old in that ring. It's amazing the way he looks the way moves. I'm just such a fan and, and I think you know, we go back. Probably a year or two at this point and listen to the interview that we did with our truth on this show. You could see he's got a great relationship with Vince McMahon who thinks he's absolutely hilarious, like it it. It's just so nice. 'cause Archer was off TV for a while. So the idea that he's back on TV and making the impact that he's making is huge to me. I just I'm such a fan of everything Archerd is doing right now, and he adds so much to smackdown and that's one of the things that makes smackdown so special. I think of art truth were on raw because raw is a show that is so centered around the stars. Raw is a show that is so centered around Roman reigns around Braun strowman around this story. Think about it this way. Smackdown is telling the main story on smackdown right is for the WWE championship between Samoa Joe and AJ styles. And I would argue that they've been successful in the Samoa Joe AJ style storytelling. They only spent what twelve minutes on it on smackdown this week. One segment, you know, they hyped it up throughout the night, but one segment at the very end of the show, and it was an interview segment and it was Samoa Joe at AJ's house and everything, and it all worked beautifully. But when you think about how much time is spent between the shield Dolf Ziegler drew McIntyre andbranch Stroman. You've probably got a third of the show being spent on those guys. Two different philosophies are now existing on ruin smackdown for me, the smackdown philosophy is working better and we'll get into that. But one of the reasons it's working better is because it gives people like our truth, a chance to really shine. There is no circumstance where our truth is getting twenty minutes on an episode of raw to be as entertaining as he was on smackdown. And that's because he's not a proven main event, household name. The way the guys that they're trying to push on raw are you know, other people are getting chances Dov Ziglar has gone from somebody who wasn't even in the conversation to one of the top guys on raw. And I think that at least impart due to the fact that he and Seth Rollins where having the best matches of the summer, the wrestling quality to me, the match quality on raw. It's definitely an argument. I think the match quality on raw is better than the match quality on smackdown. You know, when you're talking about like the revival, you're talking about Seth Rollins in dolph Ziglar..

"If you feel different, you drive different drive high, get a DUI drive sober or get pulled over number four. This week on the state of wrestling are the heels. I don't want to say the full. He'll turns because smackdown wasn't a full. He'll turn, but the heels of Ron smackdown we'll start with smackdown and the Becky Lynch thing. Clearly it's not working only because I think that the WWE didn't realize how much goodwill Becky Lynch had raised with the WWE universe Brier to summer slam. I don't think that the WWE realized quite how popular Becky Lynch was. Maybe that's because she hasn't sold as many t shirts, maybe that's because whatever, but I'm gonna tell you Becky. Lynch doesn't have the greatest t shirts in the world. That's probably part of it. You know, I don't know. You know the last kicker tee-shirt like that's cool. But. You know, I don't know how like like part of it. That's why merchandise sales can't be your end OB all you know Samoa Joe was talking about that in the interview this week, but some Joe had a really cool t-shirt when he came out, and that was part of its emoji already had a name value to him and his tee-shirt was really cool. So people bought the shirt, right. Kevin, Owens always has cool teachers. I have a lot of Kevin owns t-shirts. Seth Rollins, usually as really cool t shirts. I've a couple of south Rollins t-shirts. Roman reigns defies that because he doesn't have the greatest shirts in the world, but he's just extremely popular. So his shirt sell Becky Lynch is that level of superstar where if she had really cool shirts, they would sell a lot because people like Becky Lynch and I don't think and maybe I'm just, you know, maybe the t shirt thing is in my head because I don't have any merchandise statistics in front of me clearly. But. I think that the WWE didn't realize how popular Becky Lynch really was. Because the reason that this he'll turn is not working is not because of Charlotte. Charlotte's lucky that there is a lot of love for Charlotte, Charlotte is I don't think she's in danger of falling into Roman reigns territory because people love Charlotte so much right people are not booing Charlotte because they don't like Charlotte. People are booing Charlotte, just out of residue for cheering Becky Lynch. People just really want to see Becky Lynch have a period of time where she's successful and the thing about having athletes like Ronda, Rousey Charlotte and Oscar on your roster is you have to keep them out at least sometimes of and nyah jacks, kind of maybe fits into that. You have to keep these women out of the title picture sometimes because there were other women that people want to see hold the title. There's only one title on smackdown people wanna see Becky Lynch with the. Championship. So you gotta give her some time to shine. And that's not happening because of Charlotte and she's catching the brunt. Now, I think Becky Lynch is doing a phenomenal job as a heel. It's it's rolling over into her social media, which as if you guys listen to the podcast, you know, I always think is a good idea, but it's not gonna work because people want to see Becky Lynch succeed too badly. And when it seems like she's being good at being a heel, which she is people are going to cheer for that. So I don't know what's going to happen. I heard. I don't remember which pike cast it was. It might have been jumped Pollick podcast. I don't remember somebody I read right before I did this that there was talk of maybe kind of adjusting course a little bit. So there wasn't really a, he'll baby-faced dynamic between the two of them. I don't know what they're gonna do. That's a possibility just because they don't want Charlotte to get booed because the fans are rebelling, you know, I think both women needed just tell their stories, and this one just needs to be allowed to play out the way it's gonna play out..

The the more sane you stay, especially in this in this industry, how long when you when you first. Starting how long into this business did it take for people in the business to understand? Yes, you're Samoan. No, you're not in the anti family. We're still fighting Trump. Judas Ross Pige. Now let's see. Listen, I go big, ran of this, but you know, there's different levels of racism and you know, brothers in here. Y'all been dealing with your racism and small races little. It's a little lighter. And we have just like kind of stereotypical things a, we're all related. All of us, and we do nothing to help that stereotype because you know, I'm sure you ask any of my cousins if they related to the rock big rock. Dwayne. Deejay deejay. Are you talking about DJ. They said the wrong guy. And more. And I told me like Samoa Joe was I, it was kind of weird circumstantial thing. You know, the just starting on wrestling, there's two in the gym named Joe, and of course, instead of calling the other guy, Caucasian, Joe. All of a sudden I'm some old. Yeah. Do you guys understand white privilege now that makes sense to you, get it, you get it yet. Real. I did not want that's become us over. So what would you so it was it was it was a gag, like I was. It was a gag valet gimmick. You know, I'll have the stereotypical Simone guy who's who's kind of like with this other dude. And the funny thing was I was I was pretty decent at this wrestling thing and promoter starting asking for Samoa, Joe, and I got so terrified a change in my name because I like the work I couldn't. I couldn't show up the next week be, you know, Johnny thunder mountain. So so so the name stock and next thing you know, I was hired fulltime and a company, and they were calling me some more Joe and. I might as well trademark name and here I am. That's it. Is it who's next? Kathy got Ernest from Brooklyn Joe's Goodman was good is from Brooklyn. The very woke movie that you had been white privilege. I want to switch gears a little because I know you're rep fan, interact while the DNA DNA about a rap king in the house where you at. Right back there. Yes. Give it up. Where's the chance? DNA DNA.

Between between push between pusher and drink. I mean how to write battle very sort lose. It wasn't really a battle. Exactly. But let's say they were to get into the ring, who would you win? It's rain to help beat the other Drake or push it seeing what? What a question. This has gotta levels. Well, you know, there's always inherent beef with whoever I train. So if I trained if I train Drake, I'm all good in Houston that much. I do know. But if I try and push you now got problems and I gotta go hang out with Connie and Trump all the time.

And when I'm on the road, you know, you kinda concentrate on the stuff that's kind of centered around the job. One of the gym, finding hotels, kind of keeping up. You know, the ship is rolling along. And then when I'm home, I definitely make an effort just to be one hundred percent home.

"Intensive schedule of any. Sports entertainment slash wrestling company in the world and to. It doesn't even hit the first week and it's like your fourth week out of being gone four to five days out of your week. You kind of realize like, wow, this is this is my life. Now, this is not just the job. This is something I do like the road is where I, where I lived the majority of my life. So I think it's kind of like a shocking realization, but everybody kind of gets over it and get used to it. And then you move on from their life continues. Do you see yourself in a position in either WWE or the wrestling business in general for all your life? Like do you? Do you see yourself getting out of the ring and then doing kind of what you didn't developmental training people and producing or doing whatever or once you're done in the ring, are you done? If I have something that I can contribute, and my participation in the industry is going to make it better. I'm all for it. I'm definitely not going to stick around longer than on that. I'm welcome. So, but that being said, I know. I've been in talks with WWE and several other people about, you know, at some point in my life. Doing some more backstage stuff. So I'd love to be involved in the development, a lot of the newer wrestlers. And by next year I really enjoyed. And I think that the program and the culture that they're that they're, you know, starting down there is something special and I wouldn't mind being a part of it later in life. I'm going to tell you something similar, Joe, and I hope you guys are paying attention to every word that he says because he's dropping pearls of wisdom to go way beyond wrestling that go into life and way before you clap. There was something that he just said that is the lesson for everybody. He said, I've been having talked with WWE and a bunch of other people to talk, and you know what that is. That's the beginning of a great negotiation. That's that's. That's letting you know. I'd love to be here. I don't need to be here. That's it's mart.

Let's go to the questions here. You know, we're with Samoa Joe at Caroline's on Broadway, packed house here and the audience would like to ask some questions to Samoa Joe. Kathy, who do we have? I John, what's your question? John, who's your favorite of a may fighter? Ooh, good one, Brock listener. No. It isn't. Favourite MMA fighter all time because you saw Caraba just for what he did in the industry and being the first guy to beat the grays and the first pro wrestler, the representing the sport, like somebody should.

"Say older, but some of the the women who competed in in ariz- gone by coming back to proclaim there's as the best I liked the idea of some of the divas coming back and saying, like how dare you, Maria, Maria. Canals, even the bell is I mean, Nikki Bella longest reigning divas champion of all time. Like I think it'd be cool if the bell is in MAURICE and Maria and maybe bring back like a Tory Wilson or even a Molly Holly like Molly, Holly was one of the people in the women's Royal rumble. That was so so good. That could be wrestling right now, and you can have a couple of that. You could have Molly, Holly is the world coming back to support the divas movement to say, look at what I was doing back then as sort of that he'll group to compete with the the volved win. Oh, you're evolved, oh, this is an evolution will I didn't think anything was wrong from the beginning I'm better than you guys are now type of thing. I loved it. I think it's a good idea. But what I was saying was Molly Holly was one of the women in the women's Royal. That you look at our new, we're going, wow, you know, I know it's cliche at this point, but she's still got it. Unbelievable. The stuff that she was doing and there were a handful of women that you felt that way about one of them was Trish Stratus. It was clear when she was in the ring that she still has it as an athlete, and she still has wrestling in her DNA which is interesting because you can come from wrestling, but obviously eventually she got there. And when she got there, she was like a fish to water, and I believe her skill as a wrestler seems to be the same way. People are with riding bicycles. I think the Trish Stratus is going to be able to really, really show up at volition, and I think she knows how important it is. And the fact that it's the only match officially announced a lot of people had their graphics and rumors about Nikki, Bella and Ronda Rousey. But the only match officially officially announced, I think, is Trish Stratus versus Alexa bliss. So clearly they're banking on this to sell some tickets. This is going to be one of the main events of the night. So you know, I think it will be important, and I think Chris Stratus is gonna show up, and she showed up this week on raw, and we're just amazing, amazing as you saw, I'm sure on my Twitter account if you were following it, but we'll talk about. Evolution as we get closer to it. Of course, I think next week on the show we'll talk more and more about the may young classic because bracket tala Judy comes out this week at the time of this podcast. It came out last night so you know, in the coming weeks, we'll talk about evolution. We'll talk about the may young classic this week. I wanna talk about the guy who's on the podcast this week, and that is similar Joe. By the way. We're also of course going to talk about all in, and I do want to tell you guys. I was before we get to Samoa Joe while I wanted to give Troy Kwan his props because a lot of you were talking about the intro. I do want to say thank you to all the people who signed up to be not Sam shells over on patron. I have this vision for not Sam wrestling and one of the reasons why change the name of this podcast and not Sam wrestling is because it goes well beyond a podcast. I have this vision for a wrestling content company, a wrestling content brand. Who knows. What's next? All I know is in order for not Sam wrestling to achieve its full potential, I would like it to have a community behind. I really want to build this thing into a community, and I feel like we kind of have you know a lot of you listen to the show every single week, and I feel a sense of community. But think of not Sam wrestling on patriot think of all the not Sam shells coming together as a community center, it's where we can all get together..

"It's because of the Becky Lynch thing. It's because of Rollins, AIG ler. It's because of MS and Daniel Bryan and it's because of AJ styles versus Samoa. Joe, you talk about a match delivering. You talk about a match being so good that even a disqualification ending couldn't damage it. I mean, Joe is so good at making things personal AJ, having his wife and children in the audience. Joe doing that amazing promo before the match and then grabbing the mic to really bring the fire out and AJ styles. I mean, if you don't care about this rivalry, I don't know what's wrong with you. They did such a good job of extending it on smackdown when AJ style says he's gonna kick Joe's ass in Joe, pulls him right off the. Podium and goes, what are you gonna? Do you believe Joe? In fact, there's a great the Samoa Joe chronicle the documentary that's on the w network right now. It's this amazing. Joe does such a good job. Of being real life while standing and character. It's like nothing I've ever seen before it is so good. I was so happy with the Samoa, Joe AJ styles match. I went out onto the floor to watch Daniel Bryan versus the MS and AJ styles versus Samoa Joe with the audience at the Barclays center. And I am so glad that I did because man to absolute barn burners. And to me for me, that's what made summer slam. I thought the things that I liked AJ Joe MS and Daniel Bryan Becky Lynch. Rollins, Ziglar, all of those things trumped the things that I didn't like, which were the squash matches and the trickery at the end. You know, you can't love everything, but I liked way more than I didn't like. I thought the four hours went very quickly as compared to out could have gone. And you know, I think that that for the most part. Everything kind of mattered. Everything felt like it mattered. And so on that note, I think it was successful. Let's get to story number four, which is takeover Brooklyn for of course, takeover Brooklyn had a huge had a lot to live up to a huge amount to live up to for a couple of reasons. Number one, because take goes takeovers have been so good number two because you had Gargano and ciampa for the third time in the first two matches were so great. And number three, because takeover Brooklyn is supposed to be the best show of the year. I thought that the man that was gonna steal, the show was the tag team match. I was wrong. It was a decent match. It didn't steal the show for me, the match that stole the show. Was Adam Cole versus ricochet. I mean, I was talking to Adam Cole after the match, and they've only wrestle each other, like three times ricochet wasn't. They weren't even doing that match on on the live events. Ricochet hadn't been wrestling on the live events. This was as I mentioned a little bit of time and just execution to perfection. I mean, it was it was it was an amazing, amazing match, especially for guys who on paper you might be worried contracting styles. But when they got in the ring together mandate those styles complemented each other. Of course you're talking about the springboard moon, salt and the way that I mean, it was just hit with such precision. And that's another thing I was talking to Adam Cole about. He was talking about being in the ring with ricochet and how when he he did. So I talked to both guys, right. Adam, Cole was saying that richocheting moves so amazingly and so slowly that he's doing this springboard moon Saul. But he's like gliding through the air, and it gives you time to kind of line up perfectly and that's why he said he was able to hit ricochet so perfectly. Whereas ricochet when I talked to him, he was like, I don't know, man, maybe it's just because of the way I move. But you know, I was doing this spring board moon Saul. And as I was going, it felt like it was taking forever. And I was like, am I going to get kicked out there? It is, and he got kicked right in the face. But when they did that slo MO replay and you can see that Adam Cole hidden perfectly. I mean, that's just compliments to both guys..
