WWE News: Samoa Joe Reveals Shocking Reason Why He Didn’t Win WWE Championship
Samoa Joe is one of the most lethal strikers of the entire WWE history. Despite the heavyweight star that he is, we can see him performing incredibly agile moves on a regular basis. He has been in the WWE since 2016 who started his career by being an NXT Champion. The dominant run that he had was a sure-shot indication of a future world champion.
But that dream of him has yet to become true. Considering WWE portrays Samoa Joe as a strong heel competitor, he should have been a one-time champion, at least. Unfortunately, WWE used him as a jobber when it comes to the prime championship matches so to put over the marquee names of the brand like Roman Reigns or AJ Styles and more. This must be very frustrating for him by the overall looks of it.
The Samoan Submission Machine talked about this topic in a recent interview with the Gorilla Position podcast. The interviewer asked what he thinks of not holding the WWE Championship, to date. The 40-year old superstar had quite a meaningful response to the question as he mentioned ‘racism’ to the context!
He laughed out hard after using the word which sounds a bit cliche. But history does suggest that superstars belonging from the Black community had to wait a long time before they pick up the prime championship. Kofi Kingston is the latest example where he had to wait 11 long years to finally go to the top of the roster holding the WWE Championship. Here’s what Samoa Joe added further on this issue,
“You know what, honestly, time and where we’re at in the story. In terms of what the future holds I’m pretty confident about it. Let me put it this way, I’ve faced a lot worse odds in overcoming things and I’m pretty confident of overcoming this one.”

Samoa Joe went on to answer the question of whether it’s important for him to become the WWE Champion or not. For him, it’s about cementing his legacy which does need the most prestigious title in sports entertainment,
“For my legacy and for what the fans who have followed me throughout my career, it’s very important. For me personally, I find a great amount of enjoyment in what I do. I’m able to do what I do around the world, this is my dream job and I love it.
“That being said, it’s also very important to me, damn it. Are you crazy? Of course, it’s important to me and my legacy. It’s important to both.”
Samoa Joe has been the United States Champion in the main roster who might have received a chance to revamp his career in weeks to come. WWE included him to be one of the 16 entrants into the 2019 WWE King of The Ring tournament. In case he wins it, we hope he could go one step further to pick up the WWE Championship.
