WWE Rumors & News: Samoa Joe has been a quintessential NXT Champion. Before making his way to the main-roster, Joe ruled the Black & Gold brand with dominance. Fightful Select has stated that the NXT staff is keen to have Samoa Joe on board. Fightful Select spoke to multiple people backstage on NXT about the same.
“Fightful spoke to numerous NXT talent and staff on Friday who noted that they heard NXT (not any specific figurehead) was interested in bringing in Samoa Joe,” Sapp reported, “Over a half dozen talent in the company and another outside have heard that the interest on NXT’s side is for a wrestling role.”
If Samoa Joe returns, plans could be to make him proficient as an in-ring competitor. On WWE Raw, he was used as a commentator after his thumb injury and was donning the same role at the time of release. With NXT seemingly interested in him, the former NXT Champion could be a massive figure on the Black & Gold brand.
