WWE securing the services of Samoa Joe is a huge scoop for them, and everyone is excited to see what he will bring to the developmental brand.
One man who is particularly excited for a future with Samoa Joe in WWE, is current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
Rollins is set to defend his title on Sunday night against Dean Ambrose and has been speaking this week ahead of the match whilst also discussing Joe's arrival.
"I was very thrilled for Joe. He’s a guy who was an idol of mine growing up, someone I watched when I was in my formative teenage years. He’s someone whose style I emulated when I first started.” - Rollins on Samoa Joe
Rollins was filled with admiration for Joe who has been around for many years despite only just appearing within the WWE.
Joe was often referred to as a loyal servant to TNA and his arrival in the WWE has sent shock waves through the wrestling industry, but Rollins believes it has also sent shock waves somewhere else.
"it creates a lot of super- interesting match-ups, so it’s a great time to be a professional wrestling fan, a great time to be a WWE fan for sure.”
Set for a clash of brothers
Rollins is just over 24 hours away from yet another main event match against his former Shield brother Dean Ambrose.
Ambrose and Rollins gave us some of the best matches in 2014 and the two will now meet again but this time, for the richest prize in the WWE.
Rollins is once again expected to retain his title but in any match where the Lunatic Fringe is involved, no-one can ever guess what will happen.
