“I’ll never forget, he did a speech for me when I got inducted into the Hall of Fame in TNA. So articulate.
I mean, the guy was just so good with words and how he expresses himself. He’s one of the best promo guys in the business right now.”
Angle would go on to congratulate the former WWE United States Champion on lifting the AEW crown and had high praise for the West Huntington Beach, California native, stating his delight at Samoa Joe’s anointment to the top of the AEW mountain:
“Congrats, Samoa Joe. He didn’t get it in WWE, but he got it in AEW, and I’m really proud of him because that guy is so talented. He is one of the greatest big men I’ve ever wrestled in my life.”
