When recently speaking on the WrestleSlam Podcast, Samoa Joe talked about the wisdom of William Regal, as well as how valuable Triple H is to NXT.
On the topic of Regal, Samoa Joe had this to say:
“You know, when you’re around Regal he has so much information packed in that brain, it’s almost as if he doesn’t have the processor just to get it all out at once. But, you hang around him long enough and then, these kinda spouts of wisdom will kind of flow out of him. And then, you’re kinda like ‘oh that a good one, oh I’ll take that too’. Anytime you’re around them, you’re always gonna learn something.”
When asked about how important Triple H is to the NXT we see today, Joe said this:
“I think the biggest thing is, the biggest influence he has, is he has an ability to kind of, look at a superstar and figure out, what that extra little need is. A lot of those entrances, a lot of the spectacle that you see produced on NXT, a lot of that comes out of his head, and you know it just works so many times. It’s amazing to see him kind of sit down with the character, and kind of figure out this is how we need to put it together, this is how we need to make it look, and it’s going to be awesome. And then lo and behold, we’ll come to TakeOver and it’s this amazing entrance, and it’s just this great introduction to the world. So, I tip my hat to him for that.”
