In the main event of this week’s NXT, Karrion Kross defeated Johnny Gargano to retain the NXT Title. NXT enforcer Samoa Joe served as the guest referee for the match and nearly clashed with Kross multiple times. Following the match, Samoa Joe raised Kross’ hand and left but Kross choked him out to end the show.
Samoa Joe returned to NXT in June as General Manager William Regal’s enforcer. However, he was told that he was not allowed to be an active competitor and could not fight a wrestler without being physically provoked. There is no word on if Samoa Joe will be getting back in the ring, as he has not wrestled a match since February 2020 due to a series of concussions. It is not clear if Samoa Joe vs. Kross is officially planned in any way at the moment.
This was a big one. Check out what went down, Samoa Joe’s post match actions, and what might be coming for Kross:
