Seth Rollins wants a match with Samoa Joe when he's promoted to the main roster

Published Add your comment

Seth Rollins is the current number one contender for Kevin Owens' Universal Championship and faces off with the former NXT Champion in less than three weeks inside the Hell in a Cell structure. 

The former World Champion also has a slow burn rivalry with Triple H that looks set to be brought into focus in the build up to WrestleMania 33, but it seems The Architect is also anticipating the arrival of another heavy hitter on the main roster. 

Rollins and Samoa Joe have collided many times before they were both signed to WWE and now that could happen all over again if the former NXT Champion is brought up onto the Raw brand.

Seth Rollins has more than enough to occupy his mind on Raw at the moment with the likes of Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens and Triple H all having issues with the former Shield member, but in a recent Q&A session on Facebook, Rollins revealed that he wants a match with Samoa Joe. 

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been in the ring with Joe,” he said. “I think we’ve both grown a lot as performers, and I think we’d actually tear the house down. Hopefully once Joe’s done with his stuff in NXT he can come make his way up here and we can have a good fight.”

Samoa Joe also has his hands full right now with The King of Strong Style Shinsuke Nakamura as the pair look set to battle it out for the NXT Championship at NXT: Takeover Toronto next month.

It has been heavily rumoured that Samoa Joe could be set to make his main roster debut at this year's Survivor Series event and join a long list of stars who made their bow at one of the biggest events of the year. 

Seth Rollins himself made his debut at the event back in 2012 along with Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as part of The Shield, the likes of The Rock, The Undertaker, Sting, Kurt Angle and Scott Steiner have all also debuted at the fall event over the past few decades and Joe would be a worthy addition to this group. 

The former TNA superstar could wrap up his current story line with Nakamura the night before the November event and make a huge impact the following day, he will already be in Toronto and is currently the favourite to be given the main roster promotion.
