Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar probably put on one of the best feuds of 2017.
The pair went one-on-one at the Great Balls Of Fire pay-per-view (PPV) back in July for Lesnar's Universal Championship. Joe took the fight to Lesnar unlike anybody that we have ever seen in his great reign, with the exception of Goldberg, attacking Lesnar on RAW at various points.
Before their match started Joe even attacked Lesnar as he made his way down the ramp to the ring. While Joe came very close to defeating "The Beast," it was ultimately an F5 from Lesnar that ended the night and retained his title.
Joe really solidified himself as a top force in the WWE with the feud with Brock under his belt, and it has spilled over well into his feuds with Roman Reigns and others.
He recently spoke to CBS Sports "In This Corner Podcast" and revealed what it's like to work with Lesnar.
"The Destroyer" said that when you're working with Brock, you need to show up 'ready to work with Brock' (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"I think when you are dealing with Brock Lesnar, you have to show up ready to deal with Brock Lesnar. Brock is the type of guy who is not going to give you an inch.
"If you are going to get anything from him, you have to take it and he's going to dare you to take it.
"Brock is a guy who kind of feeds off of emotion, and if you come out and you're flat and you're not putting out what he is putting out, he's going to eat you alive. That has never been an issue with me.
"If we are going to be in the ring together, Brock knows we are coming for a fight. I mean that literally and figuratively.
"There is no pulling anything with Brock. If you show signs of weakness, he's an apex predator and he's going to pounce on it and he's going to attack and overwhelm.
"You have to know how to deal with it when you are in there with Brock. He is a person who is going to accept nothing but the very best and if you don't bring the very best, he'll have no problems doing everything he can to absolutely wipe you out."
