Clearly emotional and enraged by what Samoa Joe said about his family last week, WWE Champion AJ Styles retorted The Samoan Submission Machine’s claims on SmackDown LIVE. The Phenomenal One made it definitively clear that everything he does in WWE is for his family and that although he sacrifices, he does as much as he can to spend every waking second with them that his schedule allows. Moreover, Styles seemed most upset that Joe personally knows Styles’ kids and wife due to their long friendship prior to arriving in WWE. The WWE Champion told Joe that he should’ve kept his family’s names out of his mouth and that he plans to leave him laying at SummerSlam.
Joe, however, seemed none too concerned with Styles’ pointed words, as he simply watched The Phenomenal One’s address backstage with it ultimately bringing him to laughter.
