It appears Samoa Joe doesn’t want to get involved in the drama between CM Punk and The Elite.
CM Punk’s AEW return is set for the premiere episode of Collision. As expected, rumours and speculations have picked back up as the time for Punk’s return to TV comes closer.
The unresolved issues between The Straight Edge Star and The Elite is the main cause behind all the controversies. The failure to resolve the issues between them has created a bitter environment that continues to fuel the hatred between the two sides and their fans.
Samoa Joe says it’s not a divide
Though it appears that Samoa Joe doesn’t want to take a side in this debate. The ROH veteran was asked about the divide between the two sides in his recent interview with Sports Illustrated. Joe explained that it’s a disagreement and the grown men can figure it out:
“This isn’t a divide, it’s an argument between men. All those dudes don’t represent the entire genre of their generation. They have their own issues and their own problems. I don’t think it’s that deep. They’re grown-ass men. They have disagreements, they can figure it out or not. That’s between them.’
Samoa Joe will be part of CM Punk’s return match on Collision this Saturday. He will be teaming up with Bullet Club Gold to square off against Punk and FTR.
