On a recent edition of “The Ten Count” podcast, Lance Anoa’i stated that he hasn’t had talks with WWE about a potential deal, although he is quite willing to work for the Endeavor-owned promotion.
Anoa’i parted ways with Major League Wrestling (MLW) this past month, and he made his WWE debut on the May 27, 2019 edition of RAW.
Lance’s father is Samu, who was a member of The Wild Samoans and The Headshrinkers. His uncles are Afa Jr. and L.A. Smooth.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On dealing with rumors of him going to WWE: “So I have a friend, he goes, ‘Oh, man, are you going to Saudi?’ I said, ‘No.’ He goes, ‘Oh, man, I’m reading all over the Internet that you’re running in and you’re costing LA Knight. I heard also you’re costing Cody where he’s not finishing his story at WrestleMania.’ I said, ‘Man, you know, Philadelphia’s only an hour away, so you just never know.’”
On potentially joining NXT: ‘“I think NXT could sure use a Samoan in there. We need Jimmy, Solo, and Roman versus me, Jacob [Jacob Fatu], and Jey Uso. There’s my dream match.”
On if there’s been any talks of him joining The Bloodline: “No, no discussion at all. Nothing at all, I haven’t heard from them. Like I said, I talk to my cousins every day. I don’t know if they got something brewing that I don’t know about, but I just gotta keep preparing myself and be ready when that time comes, and I’m ready to go. We don’t know nothing yet. I’m hoping. I want to be with them, but at the moment, I’m just enjoying watching them and watching everyone succeed. I guess my career is still young, so man, I got plenty of juice ready, and ready to go.”
