- Josh Barnett of USA Today has a story here about veterans like Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode finding increased fame in WWE. In the article, Joe discussed his match with Brock Lesnar at WWE Great Balls of Fire last month.
"It was a watershed moment for me in terms of legitimization," Joe said. "Winning the Universal title wasn't in the cards, but people realized what they had on their hands. WWE realized that I belong in the main event picture and that's where I am at SummerSlam."
