#5. Samoa Joe could be headed back to WWE, possible roles in NXT
Samoa Joe’s WWE release on April 15th earlier this year shocked almost every wrestling fan. Joe was considered a valuable asset for the WWE, and it seems like the company could be paving the way for his return.
Sean Ross Sapp reported on Fightful Select that there were rumblings backstage about Samoa Joe’s NXT return. While no specific figurehead was mentioned, there were discussions amongst NXT talent and staff members on Friday.
Samoa Joe is one of the few released stars who people in WWE have been pushing to be brought back.
The report stated that more than half a dozen NXT talents and another wrestler from outside the company have heard about WWE’s interest in having Joe return for a wrestling role. Samoa Joe was also spotted at the WWE Performance Center this week; however, the purpose of his visit wasn’t revealed in the report. It should be noted there is no confirmation of a deal being signed between WWE and Samoa Joe.
At this point, the wrestlers and personnel backstage are speculating about Joe’s return, and some believe that it will happen. SRS stated that WWE is open to having Samoa Joe in a variety of roles at NXT.
Samoa Joe’s status is still relatively uncertain, with more details on the released star possibly re-signing with NXT expected to emerge soon
