Samoa Joe has arrived in NXT

Speculation about Samoa Joe’s future has been swirling since he announced his departure from TNA back in February. Despite working several ROH events, it seemed inevitable that Samoa Joe would eventually make his way to the WWE. On May 20th, 2015, “The Samoan Submission Mission” made his presence known during the main event of NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable.

As Kevin Owens continued his savage beatdown on Sami Zayn, Samoa Joe entered Full Sail Live and slowly approached the ring. When the two titans came face to face, Joe stared down Owens, ultimately resulting in Owens retreating backstage as NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable went off the air. Following the event, WWE released an exclusive video of Samoa Joe addressing the crowd.
