Samoa Joe Wants To Win ROH, AEW World Titles Following Supercard Of Honor Appearance
Samoa Joe wants gold in AEW/ROH
Samoa Joe doesn't plan to just wrestle in Ring Of Honor and All Elite Wrestling.
The Samoan Submission Machine returned to ROH following Supercard Of Honor's main event on Friday night, taking out Sonjay Dutt and forcing Jay Lethal to scurry backstage before he raised the hands of Jonathan Gresham and Lee Moriarty.
Speaking at the post-Supercard Of Honor media scrum, Joe admitted he's signed with AEW/ROH to win both promotions' world titles.
"World Champion. That's why I'm here. I tried my bid at bettering the world of professional wrestling, but at the end of the day, I'm here in AEW and ROH to be a Unified Champion. I'm here to win the AEW Championship and Ring of Honor Championship. I'm here to win anything they put in front of me," Joe said.
"I'm more than willing to go into the Owen Hart (tournament) and win that. This ain't a game anymore. AEW has a lot of feel-good moments, a lot of great wrestlers who respect each other. I don't respect nobody. Until you're in the ring with me. I'm coming out there to smack people in the mouth and take what they have. That's pretty much my edict when I'm here. Broadcaster, mentor, good guy, I am all those things, but not here. Not here."
Samoa Joe has a long history in Ring Of Honor from two runs with the promotion, first from 2002 until 2008 and then a brief return in 2015.
He is also the longest-reigning ROH World Champion in the promotion's history, having held the belt for 645 days from March 2003 until December 2004.
