Samoa Joe Discusses The Guys He Wants To Face In NXT
He was released by WWE earlier this year ending his six year run in WWE. But it was also reported that Triple H was extremely unhappy with the release of Joe and from the very moment he got released Triple H wanted him back again. As a result, he actually brought him back after only two months of his release. As mentioned above, Joe is currently performing a managerial role in the NXT.
Joe looks to be in a great shape and he is very much capable of giving good matches. Now the question is, how long WWE would take to book his in ring return.
The former two times NXT Champion recently spoke to Sports Illustrated where he revealed that he wants to face Pete Dunne, NXT United Kingdom champion Walter and the NXT champion Karrion Kross;
“Karrion Kross and Pete Dunne are at the top of that list. A guy like WALTER, people have been asking for it, I’m not blind. It’s for good reason. The guy is a powerhouse and people want to see some furniture moving.
“It’s not just one or two guys. Adam Cole, Roderick Strong, Kyle O’Reilly, there are several very accomplished athletes in NXT. Bronson Reed, he’s always yapping and wants to get some. Aussies, they got big mouths.
“I always try to keep a pulse on the industry in general, whether it be through me looking or my network contacts and people I know. Outside of the Indie wrestling world, in the combat sports world and a lot of the athletic world. Just heavy connections. It was a really nice fit. I’m looking forward to giving an opportunity to a lot of people that maybe wouldn’t get a look.”
