- In a recent interview with USAToday.com, Samoa Joe compared Brock Lesnar's run as Universal Champion to Hulk Hogan's original run in WWE:
"You go to the Hulk Hogan era reigns, and I definitely didn't see him on TV every week," Joe said. "There is a mystique to him not being on TV that much. When he does make appearances, it's usually for purposeful reasons. That's been the big theme for Brock. You hear he's not here, but if you look back at the shows, he's here when it counts and when I need to get my hands on him. As long as that still happens, I'm good with that."
