There is no doubt that Samoa Joe is one of the most talented and accomplished pro wrestlers in the business. Samoa Joe had a very eventful first run on NXT before he made his way to the main roster in WWE. It seems Konnan opened up about Samoa Joe’s future in pro wrestling as well.
The Samoan Submission Machine returned to NXT after a run on the main roster and got released. However, he was hired back shortly thereafter and engaged in a feud with Karrion Kross.
Joe ended up defeating Kross for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver 36. However, Joe would then have to relinquish the title after suffering some sort of injury and was absent from NXT television for a long time.
Unfortunately, Samoa Joe was released by the company once again last week. While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, pro wrestling legend Konnan talked about Samoa Joe possibly making his way to AEW. Konnan believed that Joe will not be utilized properly in the company.
“Yeah, they would just have another great worker who would give them some great matches and dream matches, but they likely will not capitalize on Samoa Joe the same they have with most.’
Jim Cornette believes Samoa Joe will be a huge asset to AEW. We will have to wait and see whether Samoa Joe will make his way to AEW now that his time with WWE is over.
