Samoa Joe was part of WWE’s releases on April 15th, but he didn’t stay unemployed for long. Triple H called him up and offered him a job in NXT where he works behind the scenes as a scout. He was recently spotted doing that job.
Joe relinquished the NXT Title due to an undisclosed injury. We have to wonder about the timing of that situation, because NXT was transitioning into NXT 2.0 at the time. He is still hard at work, even if Joe isn’t in the ring on television.
The former NXT Champion was spotted at the recent WWE tryouts. WWE posted his image along with many others at the tryout and he can be seen in the image below.
Samoa Joe seems happy and he’s still involved in pro wrestling. We will have to see if he ever makes a return to NXT, because he did promise to come back and go for that title once again when the time is right.
