Samoa Joe comments on the current state of the AEW locker room.

Over the past two years, the locker room in AEW has been a popular topic of conversation among fans, mainly due to the number of controversies that have clouded the company. As of late, the topic of conversation around the company has shifted back to being about matches and storylines.

While appearing on the post-Revolution media scrum, Samoa Joe said that he doesn't think the locker room in AEW has ever been tighter.

“I think you summed it up perfectly. That was last year. This is the AEW underneath my reign. As far as our locker room community, I don’t think it’s ever been tighter, I don’t think it’s ever been better. There’s an enthusiasm backstage that is infectious, and it’s because we have so much new, burgeoning talent. We have so many new opportunities to go out there and entertain the crowd with the people that we have at our disposal. There’s just genuine excitement among the locker room. It’s been a long time since this spirit has been felt here, and I’m very much looking forward to where this leads us in the future."

Elsewhere in the scrum, Joe said that he always knew he'd be back in a top spot in wrestling. Fans can learn more here.
