There was a major angle shot at Thursday night’s NXT tapings at Full Sail University. Samoa Joe came out and cut a promo about his run as champion. He said that he was a disgrace as NXT Champion and that he destroyed friendships along the way. Joe said that he just wanted to be the standard in NXT.
He asked Nakamura to come out to the ring and Joe told him that he meant everything that he said before Brooklyn and that Nakamura was a worthy contender and deserving champion.
Nakamura told Joe that he deserves a rematch when Joe is ready. It looked like that was the end of the segment and Nakamura’s theme music played. Joe left but then he came back and laid a massive beating on Nakamura and then chokeslammed him onto the stairs at ringside. The trainers and referees ran down and Nakamura was taken out on a stretcher.
It looks like this feud will lead up to the next NXT Takeover show.
