Samoa Joe made his debut on Raw last night, attacking Seth Rollins for Triple H
This past Sunday, many fans expected Samoa Joe to appear in the Royal Rumble match. When he didn’t show up, those same fans were deeply disappointed. 24 hours later, they got their wish.
Joe blindsided Seth Rollins during the last few minutes of Monday Night Raw, in a segment that included Triple H. It was a fitting continuation of Triple H’s speech a few moments before, where he called himself a “Creator” and Rollins’ “Destroyer”. Joe completely decimated Rollins, performing multiple senton’s on the man before choking him out with the Coquina Clutch as the show faded to black.
If you think about it, this was the perfect way for Joe to make his debut. After dominating NXT for a while, Joe was seen in the crowd during NXT TakeOver: San Antonio, solidifying the end of his NXT career. Instead of appearing in and losing the Royal Rumble match, he made a bigger impact on WWE’s flagship show. It also goes along with Triple H looking to destroy one of his first NXT creations (Seth Rollins) with his latest one (Joe). I sense a theme here that could open the door for multiple wrestlers from NXT showing up on the main roster to attack Rollins.
This confrontation could lead to a Rollins/Joe match at Fastlane on March 5th. After that, what are WWE’s plans for him? According to the Wrestling Observer, Joe is set for a big push leading up to WrestleMania 33. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. For now? Lets just enjoy the fact that Samoa Joe is about to finally become a dominant force in WWE.
