It’s being reported that former NXT Champion Samoa Joe was on the original Raw script to appear on tonight’s show.
As per Fightful Select, Samoa Joe was set to appear on Raw in relation to the reboot of NXT tomorrow night, although it’s not known what exactly he’d have been doing.
However, this was before Joe announced that he has vacated the NXT Championship due to injuries.
It’s unclear right now whether he’ll still be appearing on Raw tonight, or if it’ll be changed due to the fact he’s no longer champion.
Dave Meltzer reported earlier that WWE did re-sign Joe to NXT primarily for an administrative role, and he’ll probably not wrestle much from now on, even after he gets cleared again.
We’ll continue to keep you up to date on Joe’s status as more information comes to light.
