The Samoan named WWE Hall Of Famers such as Ric Flair, Mankind/ Mick Foley and Jake “The Snake” Roberts:

“I like promo guys for, I’m sure like a lot of people, a lot of different reasons. Obviously, when it came to eliciting a reaction from an audience, especially at the time, I think Ric Flair is the guy who is constantly up there. Especially when you talk about speaking with passion and being able to convey a ton of emotion with his words and his body language.”

“And you know, there’s other guys. I think Mick Foley, Mankind, had a brilliant delivery. Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, he’s also got…you know, when people look back and they understand nuanced abilities as far as promos come, he’s one of those guys. But the list is long.”

It’s no surprise that no Superstar from WWE’s Modern Era made Joe’s list. It is no secret that back in the day wrestlers had more freedom to go all out on the microphone but the scenario changed completely when WWE made it’s Superstars stick to the scripted lines and play within the boundaries.

However, a few veterans like John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and “Advocate” Paul Heyman enjoy the privilege of expressing their free thoughts on the mic, no-holds barred.

It is to be noted that ex-WWE Superstar and longest reigning WWE Champion of The Modern Era, CM Punk was also allowed to go PG on the microphone.
