A wrestling legend cut a mean promo on Samoa Joe. This legend used to make regular appearances on AEW Dynamite till sometime back.

Arn Anderson was a feared wrestler back in his prime. He has beaten pretty much every one in the industry in his time. His mean streak was what earned him the nickname, The Enforcer, as well as a place in The Four Horsemen. While Anderson has hung up his wrestling boots for good, he has settled into the role of a mentor to the younger stars who are looking to make it in the business. But even at 65 years old, Arn can evidently still cut a mean promo.

During a recent interview with Sportskeeda's Senior Editor Bill Apter, Arn Anderson was asked to cut a promo on Samoa Joe as if they were about to face each other. Arn didn't hold back as he let his promo skills show.

"You know, [Samoa] Joe, in the past, you had guys beat while they were sitting at their kitchen table the week before the match just because you bluffed everybody you've ever been in the ring with, you had the match won before it ever happened because you are a big rugged guy and you can say what you're gonna do and back it up, but you definitely weren't the first bully on the block. First bully on the block was The Enforcer, Arn Anderson, and I beat up everybody in every company I've ever worked for. Did I beat them all? No. But I beat them all up. So, the Samoa Joe fantasy that you bring to the ring with you, this will be a bad time in your life, Joe, and once I expose, you'll be like everybody else - just another victim." [7:50 - 8:49]

Bill Apter believes Samoa Joe will get his rematch against Swerve Strickland soon

Samoa Joe's world title reign was ended by Swerve Strickland at AEW Dynasty after a vicious match. Since then, Joe hasn't asked for a rematch but has still competed in the ring.

Speaking on Sportskeeda's The Wrestling Time Machine, Bill Apter stated that he believes that Joe will be back for a rematch soon.

"I'm taking color out of the equation. It was Swerve Strickland, it's his house, he did a great job. He's been around for many years and CZW and so many of the other independents, and in Japan, and it's about time he did this. We haven't seen the last of Samoa Joe. Samoa Joe is one of the toughest shooters ever and I'm sure he'll be back and maybe there'll be some rematches." [3:44 - 4:12]


Swerve Strickland will be defending his AEW World Championship against Christian Cage at AEW Double or Nothing.
