On a recent edition of The Kurt Angle Show, Samoa Joe discussed whether he regrets not having a big WrestleMania moment in WWE, his future goals with the company, and much more. You can read his comments below. 

Samoa Joe on whether he regrets not having a big WrestleMania moment in his WWE career: “No, not at all. It’s tough for me to wrap my head around this line of questioning because I didn’t start this career trying to catalog disappointments. I didn’t start this journey trying to tell myself, man, this didn’t work out or that didn’t work out. There’s a ton of things that were pretty grand ideas in my life that didn’t work out and none of them I would carry or harbor as regret. It’s useless. It’s pointless. I mean, if you’re so focused on the past, you limit your ability to accomplish in the future, and I still got things in the future I’m looking forward to and I’m not trying to carry that baggage. So, no, not at all, and once again, in the insanity of this industry, one never knows.”

On CM Punk’s return to wrestling: “If I know one thing on Punk, if he’s out on something, he’s out on it. You won’t see him being around it. You won’t see him looking at it, staring at it – it’s out of his life. The minute I saw him on the FOX set, I knew his eyes were turning back towards it. I think he was just looking for the right place at the right time and he wanted to be happy with it, and I think he is from what I’ve seen. I’m stoked for him and happy to see him back.”

On his future goals with WWE: “I’m leaving my goals open because obviously, they change as the wind does, but right now, I’m working extensively with the scouting department of WWE. Obviously, I’m very anxious to kind of get out there in the world and find the next great superstar and that’s kind of been the focus of my efforts as of late. Yeah, that’s been kind of nice. You know, I think I have a pretty good eye for talent, so I’m definitely on the hunt.”
