“I look at Samoa Joe and I’ve told him a number of times that I see his stuff at NXT and think to myself, ‘Man, I could have a great deal of fun with you.’ He’s a guy I have sort of enjoyed, and one of those sleeper guys that no one talks about. We have contrasting styles. I get that everybody wants to see me and AJ or Seth or Dolph [Ziggler]. From my standpoint, I think really telling a great story out there [is most important]. I could do it with a guy like Samoa Joe. His stuff looks really good, and sometimes he just looks like he’s beating the tar out of somebody.”Joe responded to HBK with the following Tweet:

- ECW legend Sabu recently spoke with Justin Barasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, and when asked about inducting his uncle The Sheik into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, Sabu had the following to say:
“It’s such a fake Hall of Fame. I’d only do it because I need the money. I don’t know if I would motherf**k everyone or if I would take it graciously, but I don’t consider it a real Hall of Fame. It’s not like the Baseball Hall of Fame or the Football Hall of Fame. They let anybody in it, anybody who could draw money. The real wrestling Hall of Fames are in Iowa and Amsterdam, New York. They look for donations because they’re so broke, but they have s**t from the 1800s.
Vince’s Hall of Fame only has s**t from Vince’s company. If you didn’t work for his company, you’re not in the Hall of Fame. That’s nothing to do with how good you are, it only matters who owned them.”
