Samoa Joe New WWE Backstage Role Revealed

Samoa Joe may be the on-screen assistant to NXT General Manager William Regal on TV, but the former United States Champion also has another role within the company.

Samoa Joe rejoined WWE last month after being released in April, and has revealed on the Out of Character podcast that he will now also be working as a talent scout after returning to the company, saying:

“Me and Triple H had spoken about this transition in-depth,” Joe replied. “It wasn’t just coming back to NXT and being an enforcer and having a role on the show. Now, I’m working in the talent scouting department, working with Canyon Ceman, doing more administrative things behind the scenes. It’s a transition into some of the other aspects of the business. It’s an evolution of my journey. It was a cool opportunity that Hunter offered me. It was a very nice understanding that we had come to.”

Samoa Joe is not only well connected within wrestling but also within MMA too, and he told Ryan Satin that he is looking forward to giving a variety of people opportunities to try out for WWE:

“I always try to keep a pulse on the industry in general, whether it be through me looking or my network contacts and people I know. Outside of the Indie wrestling world, in the combat sports world and a lot of the athletic world. Just heavy connections. It was a really nice fit. I’m looking forward to giving an opportunity to a lot of people that maybe wouldn’t get a look.”

During the same interview, Samoa Joe revealed that while he is working for WWE in a non-wrestling capacity right now, he is working towards being able to eventually make an in-ring return, which you can read more about by clicking here.
