-- On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Samoa Joe’s announcement of vacating the NXT title was discussed. Dave Meltzer noted that it’s a “weird story” and that Joe is still with the company but it doesn’t sound like he’s going to be wrestling much moving forward. Meltzer went on to state that Joe was re-hired back with the company to be more of a “front office” type of employee rather than a wrestler but whether that is true or not, they don’t want him wrestling as much due to his age (40s) and the brand’s push towards younger stars, but he will remain involved as a coach and a trainer.
