Samoa Joe was recently interviewed by Drew Garabo on his radio show for Tampa Bay’s 102.5 The Bone. He explained that Brock Lesnar doesn't do much planning for his matches:
"When you're going in there and you're going to get into it with Brock. Brock isn't going to work on a lot of stuff; he's going to want to go out there and he's going to want to get down, so like Brock's not a preplanned dude at all, man, so you've just got to go out there and do it. For some people it trips them out, but for me, I'm like, 'if we're going to scrap, we're going to scrap.'"
He added, "Like, honestly, a lot of getting ready for Brock was realizing he's basically a bigger Kurt Angle. But Kurt is… he's crazy, man. We just had the documentary about him and everything I said is true. If Kurt Angle's leg fell off, he'd hop twice as fast to make up for the loss of mobility, man. There's no quit in him. It was kind of a nice primer to get ready for Brock."
