Samoa Joe is returning to WWE!
As reported last week, there has been extensive discussion regarding Joe returning to the WWE NXT brand.
At the end of Sunday's NXT Takeover: In Your House 2021 PPV, William Regal was interviewed backstage about the "madness" in NXT. Regal said he had been NXT general manager for 7 years and maybe now it's time for a change.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Joe could be coming in as a new authority figure for the yellow and black brand.
“So, I think that’s the cue for Samoa Joe. I don’t know that 100%. I was told today that Samoa Joe was gonna be in a Regal-like role, then all of a sudden Regal’s talking like he’s stepping down, so maybe the Regal-like role is Regal’s role. But if he’s leaving, based on what I was told, Samoa Joe was definitely the favorite to be the new Commissioner. But Joe is in, and he’s in as a non-wrestler, so I think that tells you that he’s not cleared.”
“He’s taken a job in NXT and he’s doing something there, and he may be the new authority figure on television, or he may not be. But he’s gonna be behind-the-scenes.”
