Samoa Joe was unfortunate enough to miss WrestleMania last year and his bad luck forced the former TNA World Champion to miss the Show of Shows this year again.

During a recent interview with Busted Open Radio before WrestleMania 34, Joe talked about not being able to attend the PPV second year in a row among other things.

He said that anybody would be upset at this proposition because Mania is like the Super Bowl of Wrestling Industry so sitting on the bench is a tough go:

“I think anybody is always upset at that proposition. WrestleMania was a big day for us, and for our industry, and anytime the Super Bowl is on you want to be playing, so sitting on the bench, especially when you are ready to run, it is a tough go, but you deal with it the best way that I can.”

For those who don’t know, Samoa Joe made his main roster debut back in January 2017 and while his arrival was impressive he wasn’t booked for the card of WrestleMania 33.

He spent the next year building his name on the main roster while going against opponents like Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns but a foot injury suffered in January this year forced him to miss the Show of Shows again.
