WWE NXT Superstar Samoa Joe recently spoke to WrestlingINC. The former NXT and WWE United States Champion discussed several topics during the interview, including his opponent for this Sunday’s NXT Takeover 36 event, Karrion Kross.
‘Of course, why wouldn’t I?’ Samoa Joe replied when asked if he watches Karrion Kross when he appears on Monday Night Raw. ‘It’s on Monday night, in the comfort of my home, why wouldn’t I?”
“I always keep track of stuff and obviously he was having some troubles and some cracks in the armor” Joe continued. “I’m going to exploit those on Sunday and have a new NXT Champion.”
This will be the first match for Joe since he made his return to the NXT brand just a few short weeks ago to become William Regal’s ‘enforcer.’
