Aug 3, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

Samoa Joe did an interview with Sportskeeda and talked about how the backstage environment differs between Raw and Smackdown and more. Here are some highlights:

Difference between Raw and Smackdown backstage:

“Well, backstage, I do my own thing and have my own spots in the locker room so environmentally it’s not very different for me. But, the backstage environments are vastly different, but that is mainly because of the personalities. You’ve got some very unique individuals in the WWE and it’s a completely different nexus on Smackdown than it is on Raw.”

Next challenger for him if he wins the WWE Championship against AJ Styles at Summerslam:

“That answer is very simple. It would be whoever is worthy of being the number one contender. If we look up and down the Smackdown roster, we could see a lot of great possible match-ups. There are the Jeff Hardy, Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton out there, not to forget Rusev. You know, there are a lot of first time ever match ups there. After I win the Championship, I’ll be happy to take on anyone.”

Who has the best chance to shine on the main roster from NXT:

“I think Aleister Black is a good bet, then there is Velveteen Dream. There is a great crop of talent, and some of the newer guys are picking up well.”
