WWE Superstar and commentator Samoa Joe has just performed one of the sweetest gestures ever. The Samoan was growing out his hair, which he has now donated to the Children With Hair Loss Organization. Joe proved once again that he is a great humanitarian and a wonderful person.

Joe cut off his ponytail to support a cause that is probably close to his heart. The Children With Hair Loss Organization is a non-profit organization that provides human hair replacement to children and young adults at no cost. Children suffering from medically related hair loss are the primary reason for the start of this organization.

Regina Villemure established the organization after her niece Sarah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age three. Sarah is now a survivor for over thirty years, and the journey Sarah went on inspired Regina to reduce the discomfort other children would go through because of any illness.

One can make a monetary donation and do what Samoa Joe did as well. Joe’s contribution will ensure that a child suffering from hair loss won’t have to worry too much about it.

When will Joe return to the ring?

Samoa Joe has not wrestled for the WWE since February 2020 when he teamed up with the Viking Raiders and Kevin Owens to take on Seth Rollins, Murphy, Akam and Rezar. They lost the eight-man tag team match, and Joe retired to the announcer’s desk. Needless to say, fans are eager to see the former United States Champion return to the ring again.

WWE is in desperate need of an athlete like Joe. His charisma, his explosiveness, and the reality surrounding his presentation make him look like a killer.

We cannot wait to see which poor jobber gets mauled by the Samoan Submission Machine. However, in the long run, WWE should thrust Joe into the main event.

Joe can put on classics against a plethora of newcomers on the main roster. The prospect of seeing Riddle vs Joe or Keith Lee vs Joe is mouthwatering.

Moreover, he can even go hunting for the Tribal Chief. Joe’s Samoan bloodline gives him adequate impetus to snatch Roman Reigns‘ title and keep it for himself till another challenger emerges.
