When Samoa Joe is healthy, he is one of the most physically powerful athletes on the entire WWE roster. He’s amazing on the microphone and leaves so much emotion in the ring with everything he participates in. He seemingly has everything that #VinceMcMahon would want in a WWE superstar, so why hasn’t anything really come of Samoa Joe on the main roster? Will he be getting his big moment anytime soon?
It’s hard to say whether or not WWE has been the ones to purposefully keep Joe out of the top spot on the roster. When he’s been around, he’s gotten main event opportunities, and even a Universal Championship match against #BrockLesnar at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view event last year. But Joe has suffered a lot from injury since he was called up to the main roster last year and has for sure had to take steps back because of it.
In case you missed it, Samoa Joe successfully qualified for the #MITB ladder match for the upcoming PPV, and is definitely one of the favourites to win the match. He has already called out #AJStyles for the WWE Championship and is long over due for a title shot and run on the main roster. As much as I want Bálor to win the briefcase, I think Joe needs it the most. Plus, a feud with Styles would be awesome, knowing the history those two men have with each other.
Let’s say Joe is unable to capture the briefcase on June 17th, I do still believe that a title shot is close by for Joe. It feels incredibly long overdue and is exactly what Joe needs to remain relevant. Even if it isn’t for the WWE Championship, he just needs something to stay on everybody’s radars.
There’s no argument that Samoa Joe is already very much over with the WWE Universe, but if we’ve learned anything from this era of wrestling, that means absolutely nothing to Vince. But just because someone is over, doesn’t mean you can’t do anything with him or her and people will continue to care. Joe will get his championship eventually; it’s just a matter of when and where.
But fear not kind readers, his moment should be coming soon. Of course I don’t know that for sure, but you have to have the sense that if Joe can remain healthy that he will be champion in no time. Unfortunately, WWE creative somehow found a way to absolutely ruin the Shinsuke Nakamura and Styles feud, but I believe that based on how good Joe is in the ring AND on the mic, he could single handily maintain the excitement of any feud.
The ‘Joe’ chants during his entrance is one of my favourites in WWE. I really want to see creative reward #SamoaJoe for his hard work. He’s so good at everything he does for the industry; it feels criminal that he hasn’t had a world title run yet in WWE. Hopefully, however, we don’t have to wait much longer.
