So, last night on NXT Takeover, right at the end of the event, we saw Samoa Joe make his way down to the ring.
Rumor has it that Samoa Joe doesn’t have a full time contract with NXT, as he still seems to be booking indie shows. Also, the fact he seems to definitely be keeping his Samoa Joe name, which isn’t common, as the WWE likes to own the intellectual property associated with their wrestler’s names. Hence why almost all previously known wrestlers who are coming through the NXT ranks, have received a name change. Including Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Hideo Itami and more!
