It’s only been two months since the WWE released Samoa Joe, and he has now made his return to NXT. The show started with William Regal expressing his disappointment at what is happening in the NXT.

Kross said that it is time for Regal to step out as the GM. As Kross continued his provocation on Regal, Samoa Joe entered the arena. Joe was then offered a GM role by Regal, which he denied and accepted a General Enforcer role.

Just minutes after taking the job, Samoa Joe got into action with Adam Cole. A backstage altercation broke out between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole, which demanded action from the General Enforcer. Joe had the authority to make contact with NXT Talent only if they provoked him.

Cole wasn’t happy about Joe’s involvement, which ultimately ended badly for the former Undisputed Era member as Joe unleashed the Coquina Clutch on the former NXT Champion.
