Samoa Joe is still working at the top of the wrestling industry but might have more matches behind him than in front of him and he explains how a serious injury helped prolong his career.
Samoa Joe will challenge MJF for the AEW World Championship at Worlds End over twenty years after he first held major world title gold in Ring of Honor.
While Joe’s contemporary Bryan Danielson winds down his wrestling career, it seems The Samoan Submission Machine has no thoughts about doing the same quite yet.
Samoa Joe Plans To Go Out With A Bang
Speaking to Adrian Hernandez, Samoa Joe discussed how long he plans to keep lacing his boots and says taking time to heal from a serious injury helped him prolong his career:
I’ll probably stop well before then. I’ve been really, really fortunate. When I came off the concussion, I took two years off to really get everything back into order, and in that time too, just in the recovery process, really changed a lot around in my training and changed a lot of things around that have benefited me to a great amount health-wise. I feel good right now.
As far as where the train will end, I’ll let it play out a little bit more. But I will say this, I definitely have more than a handful of good years left in me. Beyond that, I’m excited…if we are gonna out, we’re gonna go out with a bang. So it’ll be interesting to see how these next few years play out.
Samoa Joe has vicious plans for MJF at Worlds End as he looks to become AEW World Champion for the first time in his career.
