• Samoa Joe Comments On Rumors Of Him Being Supposed To Be Umaga, Says People Comparing Him To Umaga Was “Mad Racist”
During a recent interview with Pop Culture, new SmackDown Live Superstar Samoa Joe commented on an old rumor of him being supposed to be Umaga (play the Umaga character in WWE) and people comparing him to Umaga.
Below are the highlights:
On rumor of him being supposed to be Umaga (play the Umaga character in WWE):
“It absolutely, positively, couldn’t be any more false. We never talked, like… What people didn’t get is, they couldn’t talk to me legally. I think I still had two years on my contract, I wasn’t going anywhere. So, it’s funny, I think people thought you could just walk away from a deal at that time. You couldn’t. We never talked, I was never even brought up to be Umaga.”
On people comparing him to Umaga:
“I thought it was mad racist, cause it was like, I had just come on TNA and I was Samoa Joe, and it was like this prominently featured Samoan character, and then it was like, oh, well this is WWE’s answer to Samoa Joe, right? No. You wouldn’t do that if it was any other, right? It was mad racist to me.
Why would you come up with that comparative, because he’s like… we weren’t even the same character! We weren’t even remotely anything like each other. But the fact that I was Samoan and he was Samoan, we were the same character. And I was like, what…what are you talking? That’s the comparison you draw?”
