In a recent interview with MuscleManMalcolm, Joey Janela discussed several topics, including the potential of him signing a deal with WWE.
“There’s a lot of things I want to do, I’m 34 now, so we still have a little bit, there’s still goals, I have New Japan as a goal, I have the Tokyo Dome as a goal, who knows. For 18 years in the business right now, I’m in pretty good condition, I could always be in better condition, which it comes in cycles, but hey, if WWE wants to give me a chance, I’m sure we can make that happen. I’m a lot smarter now than I was a few years ago, and I’m a lot more mature, so we can definitely do something there I believe with their creative and my creative, we could mesh the minds together and see what happens. It could be a complete disaster, who knows, but that’s always been the goal, that’s always been the dream.
When I was a kid, there was no AEW, so that was something that just fell in my lap, and I appreciate Tony for taking care of me during COVID, taking care of me during my knee injury and signing me to that deal, but that was never the goal, that was never the dream, WWE was always the dream, besides New Japan and the Tokyo Dome and whatnot, all of the death match stuff I’ve done, I’ve accomplished basically every single one of my goals, besides WWE, besides a New Japan run, so who knows what’s going to happen in the next couple of years, but I like the independent wrestling scene too much and I’ll be sad to step away if that opportunity does come.”
