Samoa Joe has arrived on Raw, and destruction is imminent.
A world-traveled veteran of the mat game, the 282-pound Joe has used a blistering, MMA-inspired offense to rack up championships in top promotions across the globe. Before he ever set foot in WWE, Samoa Joe had already done battle with the likes of John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and Cesaro throughout his storied career.
Still, despite his pedigree, the thought of Samoa Joe entering a WWE ring seemed to be relegated to the imaginations of fantasy matchmakers worldwide. Yet, after barreling through WWE NXT, Joe was officially signed to the Team Red roster on the Feb. 6, 2017, edition of Raw, one week after viciously attacking and reinjuring Rollins as Triple H looked on.
Since then, Joe has been unleashed on rivals like Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor and even Brock Lesnar, who Joe nearly defeated for the Universal Title in the main event of the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view event.
