Samoa Joe recently spoke with The New York Post to promote Sunday's Fatal 4 Way at SummerSlam with Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Is this fatal-four-way match for the Universal title on Sunday maybe the biggest of your career, considering it is SummerSlam and for a title?

"Absolutely, I say it is. Obviously I've had big matches all around the world, but I think the biggest thing is [Sunday] at SummerSlam, one of the biggest kind of pay-per-view franchises in the industry, and I am in the main event. So yeah, by far this is the biggest match of my career."

What's your relationship with Brock and Paul backstage? I know there has been talk that they are big supporters of yours.

"I think there is a lot of mutual respect there, for the most part. I think we both understand and have great respect for what we bring to the table. So, it's at times amicable."

What are your thoughts on Roman Reigns?

"I think when you look at the top, elite performers in this industry right now, I think Roman Reigns is in that discussion. I think he is a polarizing figure, which is always a great thing in this business. I think whatever success that he comes by he works for, so I give him that credit."

Braun Strowman?

"Braun by far is probably one of the most, how should I phrase this. For how little time he's spent in the industry, his knowledge and his abilities have grown 10 fold every week. He is a guy that is constantly improving. He is constantly getting better. Now he is probably one of the biggest consummate, complete acts in the industry."
