Samoa Joe: "This is what it was like to fight with Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle"

Two of the most famous and most successful WWE wrestlers of the last 20 years, are surely Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle, respectively, current WWE Champion of McMahon and athlete belonging to the Stamford Federation Hall of Fame.

If the first still fights at very high levels in the rings of the number one company in the world of pro-wrestling, the second has now retired from competitions for a few years, with his last sad match that came against Baron Corbin, in that of Wrestlemania , with fans and insiders alike being quite embittered by this fairly anonymous career ending.

One of the fighters who managed to get into the ring with both of these wrestling holy monsters, is Samoa Joe, former NXT all-time champion, who in his TNA and WWE stint had great feuds with both Angle and Lesnar, with the Samoan who did not disfigure at all in such disputes.

In his latest interview with the microphones of the Kurt Angle Show, a radio broadcast of the WWE Hall of Famer of the same name, Samoa Joe wanted to talk about what it was like to get in the ring with him and his archenemy of the Ruthless Aggression Era, with the Samoan Submission Machine who in fact told: "I love Kurt and Brock.

Kurt is an efficient cougar, like an efficient panther, he is a feline predator. Like killing fast, really lethal, the fastest. I have managed to work with some of the best world-class wrestlers of my time. Kurt still has that touch of class that comes out of nowhere every time, very fast and really lightning-fast maneuvers.

Brock is simply like fighting a bull fist (like Jake LaMotta). He is a steamroller, he goes through things and people. What he does not achieve with technique, he achieves with power alone. So I think this is the best way to describe the differences between Kurt and Brock, believe me when I tell you it's like fighting with two predators, only of two different species."

Brock Lesnar equals the record of Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan

One of the most prominent Superstars of the entire McMahon company, WWE, is undoubtedly its WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar. After more than a year of absence, with The Beast Incarnate having lost its tracks, after Wrestlemania 36, ​​from which he had come out defeated against Drew McIntyre, at the time become the new WWE Champion, Lesnar preferred not to renew the his contract with the McMahons, leaving the company in the midst of the global covid-19 pandemic.

All this then ended with Lesnar's return to Summerslam, with the Beast of the federation going immediately to challenge the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns, after the latter's victory against John Cena, in a match valid for the Universal Championship.

After several face-to-face and a match at Crown Jewel, there should have been another title match for the Universal Championship on Day One, but due to the inability of Reigns to show up, due to positivity to the covid, WWE thought well.
