What's the story?

In late August, Samoa Joe suffered an injury that ruled him out of action for two whole months. He made his triumphant return to the company once again, this week.

Following his win over Apollo Crews, Samoa Joe cut a vicious promo. During the course of the promo, he even took a shot at and their 'tales of redemption'.

In case you didn't know...

After an outstanding performance at WWE SummerSlam, Samoa Joe was ruled out of action and underwent two surgeries. Not only did he repair his torn meniscus, he also underwent nasal surgery to correct his breathing, at the very same time.

This week, Joe seemed better than ever as he went toe-to-toe with the athletic and talented Apollo Crews. As one would expect, Joe comprehensively won his comeback match, and cut this scathing promo.

The heart of the matter

Mike Rome caught up with Samoa Joe for a exclusive interview and asked him about putting both the RAW and SmackDown Live rosters on notice. This is how Samoa Joe responded to Rome:

Notice? You know notice is a funny thing. Notice means I'm informing people who do not know. To be honest, everybody knows. Everybody here, they know. They know what I'm here to do and what I'm capable of.

Samoa Joe went on to say the following words:

You know year after year I've seen men get injured and they're carted out. And you people, and (WWE).com, you follow them around and you build this beautiful tale of redemption and coming back. For some reason, none of those things were afforded to me.

Joe said that him entertaining the crowd was a fruitless endeavour. He referred to the backstage crew including Mike Rome as 'selfish' and 'punks'. Scary!

What's next?

We wonder if Samoa Joe will be one of the men chosen to be a part of RAW's Survivor Series team. Or indeed, if creative has other plans for him. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda Wrestling, to find out where Joe's headed.

Author's take

Nobody delivers lines with the conviction that Samoa Joe does. His ferocity is a thing to behold and really makes him look like a seriously tough dude. I cannot wait for him to enter a title feud, very soon.
