The Samoa Submission Machine is back. Samoa Joe returned on this week’s Monday Night Raw when he interrupted Roman Reigns’ in-ring promo.
Joe ripped on Reigns for falling short in his quest to regain the WWE Universal Championship and then said that he would be waiting for him at Backlash after Reigns’ match with Brock Lesnar at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia.
