The Samoan submission machine is probably the most unlucky wrestler in pro wrestling history. In his two-decades-long career, Joe has been injured several times and hence has always been short of fulfilling his potential.

It has been a year since we last saw Samoa Joe in the WWE ring. Joe was last seen in a semi-final match in a losing effort against Baron Corbin at the 2019 King of the Ring tournament.

Post then, Samoa Joe was reported to have a thumb injury. As a result, Joe was made a part of the commentary team.

Joe was previously attacked by Rollins’ former disciples AOP. However, Joe retaliated once, saving Kevin Owens from AOP and Seth Rollins.

In February, Joe was suspended for violating WWE’s wellness policy. However, he did return in April but again as a commentator.

On the latest edition of RAW, Seth Rollins walked out to answer Dominik’s challenge. However, Rollins turned his attention to broadcaster Tom Phillips for cheering Dominik’s assault previous week.

As Rollins planned on sacrificing Phillips, Joe intervened to make the save. However, instead of Joe’s return, this served as a distraction for another Dominik assault on Rollins.

However, this blink of a return has got the WWE Universe buzzing.

Joe returning to the ring can be great for the company. Joe’s brilliance in the ring and realistic promo skills cannot be ignored.

Interestingly, there are rumors flying around that Vince McMahon is happy with Joe at the commentary table. It will be interesting to see what plans WWE have for him.
