PWInsider is reporting that Samoa Joe is currently backstage at the Performance Center for tonight’s NXT show.
As previously noted, William Regal said at the end of Sunday’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House that change is needed in NXT because things have gotten out of control with too many backstage brawls. The belief is that Joe will be returning to NXT in a commissioner/GM type of role.
As of a few hours ago, the plan for tonight’s show was to kick off NXT with Regal so we could hear from Joe within the next couple of hours.
Scheduled for tonight’s show:
– William Regal will address the future of NXT
– The fallout from TakeOver: In Your House
– NXT Cruiserweight Champion KUSHIDA’s Open Challenge
– Kacy Katanzaro and Kayden Carter vs. Raquel Gozalez and Dakota Kai
– Ted DiBiase will officially crown LA Knight as the Million Dollar Champion
– Imperium vs. Breezango
– Io Shirai will appear
– Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans in a Tornado Tag Team Match
