WWE news on plans for Samoa Joe and which brand he will be on

On Monday night, we wrote about plans for Samoa Joe that were scrapped from Monday Night Raw. The plans were scrapped because he was sick with the flu. There was a segment planned for him with Braun Strowman but because of the plans changing, they had Strowman destroy EC3 to make up for the scrapped segment with Joe.

On Wednesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Joe will be part of the Raw roster and he is bringing the United States Championship with him.

“Samoa Joe is gonna be on Raw. That hasn’t been announced. He was gonna be announced on the show but because he was sent to the doctor and taken off the show, they were gonna announce that last night,” Meltzer said.

This also explains why the Finn Balor and Intercontinental Championship were moved to SmackDown Live since they don’t like to keep both secondary titles on the same brand.
