Jabroni Journal: Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar - A Dream Match Becomes Reality

July 6, 2017

The Dream Match
Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar has been a dream match of mine since I saw Joe step foot inside an NXT ring. For the longest time it felt so far-fetched.  Since defeating The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30, Brock Lesnar has been treated like an undefeatable monster (minus a couple losses to Goldberg, that is) and I was almost certain that when Joe was brought up to the main roster, they wouldn’t see him in the same light.

But as we have seen in the past few weeks, not only has the WWE placed Joe alongside the Beast Incarnate, they have let the Samoan wrecking machine loose. I watched in shock as Brock Lesnar gasped for air, his face beet red as he laid there motionless in the grasp of Joe’s patented Coquina clutch. 

The anticipation is high for this Sunday, as Samoa Joe challenges Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at Great Balls of Fire. It’s the first time in a very long time that a WWE match has a big fight feel. Whether Joe or Lesnar comes out of the match as the winner, we are guaranteed to have ourselves a hell of a brutal match. 

To get you prepared for what we might see from Samoa Joe this weekend, I want to share a match from his time in Ring of Honor. Joe was an indestructible force in his first run in ROH and one of his many highlights from this period was when he went face to face with Japanese wrestling powerhouse and legend Kenta Kobashi. Much like this Sunday, there was that same BIG FIGHT FEELING. Watch this CHOPFEST and get stoked for Sunday !
