Booker T recently took to his own Hall of Fame podcast, where he spoke about the WWE release of Samoa Joe.
During the podcast, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer was asked for his thoughts on the release, and like many, he’s “100% surprised”. Booker explained why he felt Joe is a “utility guy”, and told listeners:
"He was on the sidelines, but I always thought Joe was going to do that job. Joe is like me - he's kind of like a utility guy. 'You need me over here, I'll do that; you need me over here, I'll do that.' And be content with actually doing that, not being consumed with: 'Man, I got to get back in the ring, I'm missing the boat.' But, am I surprised that Joe was on the list? I must say 100%, I am. I don't know the ramifications of what happened but I do think it's a loss for the company”
Booker followed up the comments by stating that wherever Joe goes next, he will do great.
