Samoa Joe on his future in the WWE
“As of right now I’m enjoying commentary on Raw,” Joe told Taylor Wilde on the Wilde On podcast. “It’s been a fun challenge. It’s something very very new, and I’m enjoying that. Obviously I’m not done in the ring by no means.
“I think right now I’m just kinda exploring things and seeing how I feel about things. And aside from that, doing a lot of voice acting lately, it’s kinda fun and cool…I’m very very fortunate, and I’m very very happy that I’m doing the things that I’m doing right now.”
Joe teased a return to wrestling when he almost had a go at Seth Rollins a few months ago. However, nothing came off it and he’s still on commentary. There is at least clarity on his stance in regards to his in-ring career.
