• Samoa Joe Says Vince McMahon Didn’t Want Him In WWE

During a recent interview with Fightful, former United States Champion Samoa Joe revealed that many people went to Vince McMahon about signing him to WWE back in the day, but Vince wanted nothing to do with him.

Below is what Joe said:

“Oh, there were tons here for years. Years. Vince vehemently opposed me being in WWE. He didn’t know me, wasn’t familiar with me. And now we have a great relationship, everything’s working fine.

I think he just realize he already bought it, so he might as well use it. No, like I said, with every partner I’ve ever worked with it’s about time and understanding. And we’ve had some time and we’ve had some understanding. It’s working out pretty well.”
