Samoa Joe is currently backstage for tonight’s WWE NXT from the Capitol Wrestling Center at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, according to PWInsider.
There’s no word yet on if Joe will be returning to NXT tonight, but it was recently revealed that he was returning to the company for a non-wrestling role with the NXT brand. You can click here for that backstage report.
It’s speculated that Joe’s return has to do with the change that NXT General Manager William Regal teased at the end of Sunday’s “Takeover: In Your House” event. Regal’s follow-up promo is scheduled to open tonight’s broadcast on the USA Network.
