Samoa Joe is again in NXT, and he is already making his presence felt.
Joe returned to the black-and-gold model in gorgeous vogue Tuesday evening, interrupting NXT Champion Karrion Kross and William Regal. Kross was ridiculing the NXT Common Supervisor till being confronted by Joe.
Whereas the previous NXT Champion mentioned he could not settle for Regal’s supply to take over his duties as Common Supervisor, he was comfortable to supply his companies differently: as an assistant who is not afraid to get his fingers soiled.
We did not have to attend lengthy to see how hands-on Joe can be on this new capability. With an unruly melee breaking out backstage between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole, Joe locked the Coquina Clutch on Cole, placing him to sleep.
For sure, Joe’s surprising return to his outdated stomping grounds lit up the WWE and NXT Universe.
Tick tock certainly. https://t.co/h9kyEXozVS
