Samoa Joe could debut on Raw the night after WrestleMania

Published 3 Comments

NXT fans will be glad to hear that one of their favorite superstars could be making their debut on the main roster later this year.

According to Wrestling Inc, Samoa Joe will be going up against Finn Balor for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, the day before WrestleMania 32.

If he doesn't win the championship here, the report says he could be making his debut on the main roster not long after the event.

The report says: "WWE officials are reportedly planning on bringing Samoa Joe to the main roster after WrestleMania 32, possibly as soon as the post-WrestleMania RAW the next day.

"Right now the plan is to debut Joe on that RAW but it was noted by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that creative plans could change, but plans are in motion to bring Joe up. There was at least talk of having Joe defeat Finn Balor for the NXT Title and extend their feud, which would obviously delay his main roster call-up."

So we could receive an indication of the future of Joe in NXT depending on if he wins the NXT Championship from Balor. However, as we have seen in the past with Kevin Owens, an NXT star can still make their debut on the main roster while still being the champion, so a debut could still be on the cards no matter what.

The report also talks about when Sami Zayn and Balor could be making their debut on the main roster.

For Zayn, he could be called up soon to have a feud with Owens at WrestleMania, but other recent reports have said he is still suffering from a shoulder injury he picked up last year when he faced John Cena for the United States Championship during one of his open challenges.

Balor, on the other hand, will likely not be called up to the main roster soon, as he is considered to be the face of the NXT brand beyond March this year.
