According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Samoa Joe is expected to take the loss to Roman Reigns at Sunday’s WWE Backlash event before he starts a program for the WWE Championship title against AJ Styles on weekly Smackdown Live programming.
Below is an excerpt of what Barrasso posted in his weekly update.
“Samoa Joe fans are bracing themselves for disappointment, as the “Samoan Submission Machine” is nearly a certainty to take the fall in his match with Roman Reigns. WWE is planning a Joe-Styles feud for the WWE title (imagine reading that sentence five years ago?), and it will be interesting to see what direction the creative moves in for Shinsuke Nakamura if he is unable to capture the title from Styles on Sunday.”
