9. Former ROH Champion Thinks Samoa Joe Will “Out-Brock” Brock Lesnar Again Tonight

During an interview with USA Today, former Ring of Honor World Champion Christopher Daniels discussed Samoa Joe’s Universal Title match against Brock Lesnar tonight at the Great Balls of Fire 2017 PPV. Below are the highlights:

On Samoa Joe taking on Brock Lesnar tonight:

“I’ve been in there with Joe there before and I knew I was going into a match where I was going to get roughed up. I think when you go in with Brock Lesnar that’s what happens, too. If anybody can take the punishment that Brock Lesnar can dish out, it’s Joe. I think this will go a little bit longer than Brock’s recent pay-per-view matches and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Samoa Joe with his hand raised. Joe’s gotten the upper hand in the last few encounters. That might be something Brock is not used to. Joe almost choked him right out on the stage on one of the last RAWs. I don’t think Brock’s been in that situation. It’s going to be interesting to see how Brock responds to someone ‘out-Brocking’ him.”

On Joe’s unique style:

“He’s always had that swagger that he knew he was one of the toughest guys in the room. He knows that people look at him and assume that he’s one-dimensional. He goes out and proves that he has that variety to his style. He can go in there with a guy that can fly and hang with him, or a guy that can brawl and hang with him, or a guy that is technical wrestler and hang with him. I feel like that’s what he’s been doing his whole career. People assume one thing and he throws those assumptions on their ear.”
