Knowing the art of a good promo is something that can elevate every single superstar in every single promotion. Wrestling is not all about the moves in the ring, it is also about the characters of those who are trying to make the in-ring action look good. A promo that delivers on all points is for sure going to do wonders for the one that was able to cut it the right way.
Samoa Joe was able to deliver one of the best promos of the year on Monday Night Raw. And boy, did he need a strong promo as a way to start off the feud with Brock Lesnar that is probably going to end at the Great Balls of Fire pay per view. This wrestler immediately raised his stock in the company with the kind of delivery that he had on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
Joe has that credibility as he looks like a dominant force and also acts like one. The way that he spoke before and after Paul Heyman showed up is going to go a long way with the fans. They know now that he is ready for the challenge that the Beast Incarnate really is.
Attacking Paul Heyman at the end shows that sentence ‘I am not afraid of Brock Lesnar‘ is legit. The fact of the matter is that he really looks like someone that is not afraid of an athlete like Brock is. That is why the promo that he cut is supposed to make him look even more legit and credible as a challenger for the title.
