Samoa Joe was interviewed by Chad Dukes on Wednesday and talked about a number of things, including his departure from TNA Wrestling and return to Ring of Honor.
Regarding his decision to leave TNA and return to ROH, he commented:
“I think certain times in your career you reexamine things and a change of scenery is nice. It’s good for the fans, it’s good for me, and I think it’s healthy all around. I’m excited about some new matches for me, there’s some guys out there I haven’t had a chance to work with especially some younger guys, up and comers, that I think have tremendous promise and talent and I get to get in there and mix it up with them.”
“It kinda was a culmination over the past few months of various factors, various reasons. You kind of come to these big decisions and I kind of looked around saw the landscape of things and thought it was the time.”
CM Punk Tweeted the following to Joe:
Here’s what he told Dukes about the Tweet:
“Time will tell and that’s really up to him and obviously his obligations to UFC. I know he’s training real hard for his upcoming fight but if he wants to throw down, if he wants to scrap, you can come over here and start off with me and see what’s left when you go into the octagon.”
