Samoa Joe returned on WWE Raw following the Wrestlemania 34 event. On the most vocal night of the year, i.e. the post-Mania edition of the show, he came back to start just where he left off.
The former NXT Champion picked up a fight against none other than the franchise player of the company, Roman Reigns. It set up the main event of the Backlash PPV event in 2018.
This rivalry has been so much intense that we expect it to continue through the upcoming house show events. In the future, WWE will be travelling to the United Kingdom and also host a special show at the Madison Square Garden, i.e. WWE MSG Live. All of these were advertising the same matchup in the main event spotlight.
But, we need to remember that, Samoa Joe is not a WWE Raw superstar, anymore. During the superstar shakeup in 2018, he got drafted to the Smackdown Live brand. Hence, all of those scheduled matches would have been a cross-brand product. But, the revised schedule of the WWE suggests this contest has now been withdrawn.
The current advertisements of WWE MSG are showing that Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe will no more take place. According to the reports of wrestlingINC.com, the audience for the special show in the New York City will not witness this mega match between the two behemoths. They will be gifted with a new match, quite certainly.
None of the official reports are available, right now with the potential replacement. But, one of the updates from the 434 Facebook page suggested Jinder Mahal would replace Samoa Joe in the matchup. The superstar of Indian origin is no more a main event star. Hence this can’t be the marquee match of the evening. Instead, a backup contest is said to get finalized, later.
The good news is that Jinder Mahal will be getting a lifetime opportunity to perform on a show like WWE MSG Live. It is always special for the superstars in the company.
Furthermore, the company will pit him against the poster boy of the company. So, before this clash, we can certainly expect him to pick up some momentums and elevate his level from the current position.
