As noted, Samoa Joe will be making his comic book writing debut with the new BOOM! Studios comic book, and he recently spoke with CBR.com to promote the issue. On his first year with WWE, Joe had the following to say:
It’s funny. I tell this to a lot of people who ask me this — if I were to have stopped wrestling a year ago, I would have said I had a fantastic career. A very, very fulfilling career. And I think most people would agree with me. But I’ve found myself here on Raw, and I’m literally living in the bonus.
This year’s been absolutely fantastic — a lot of high points, a lot of milestones. Being a part of the Raw crew and WWE — I think now I appreciate it more than I would have [earlier], only because I’ve experienced pretty much every other scenario working in this industry outside of WWE. To be here now, it’s very fun for me, and honestly, it’s very enjoyable, because I’m at a point in my career now where I can go out there, I’m confident in what I can do, I’m confident in what I have to offer, and WWE has been very confident in letting me do what I do. It’s a very fun, mutual relationship that we have going so far.

Still lots of discussion regarding the WrestleMania 35 location. The difference between the 2 “finalists” is 96 miles. An hour & half drive. So is it that big of deal? If your flying in either way, it shouldn’t matter too much. Yes, the 2 cities / area is much different tho.
