At one point this year there was a rumour doing the rounds that Samoa Joe would enter into the WWE in a feud with John Cena. Obviously, this rumour did not come to fruition and Joe debuted the night after John Cena was last seen in the company.
Since then Joe has gone on to establish himself as a main event player in the WWE and will challenge Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire next month. Sadly, there is little chance of Joe winning that match but rumours are now swirling that Joe is getting a lot of hype backstage due to the Youtube success of his brawl with Lesnar last week- raking in an abnormally high amount of views for the WWE’s channel.
The company may see a big match, and victory over John Cena at Summerslam as their way of compensating Joe’s loss to Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire. Not only that, but it is too many fans a dream match-up that we never thought we’d get the opportunity to see.
