Samoa Joe demanded the NXT Championship back
ORLANDO, Fla. — Just one week after his brutal attack sent NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura out of Full Sail University in an ambulance, Samoa Joe strode to the ring with a little extra swagger in his step. The submission specialist had The King of Strong Style’s medical report in his hands, and revealed to the NXT Universe that Nakamura suffered contusions to his lower lumbar, severe inflammation in his left elbow and a separated shoulder.
However, while the medical report stated that the NXT Champion would not require surgery, Joe said that Nakamura’s rehabilitation would keep him out of action for six to 12 weeks. With that in mind, Samoa Joe demanded that NXT General Manager William Regal either give him Nakamura, or strip The King of Strong Style of the title and give it to him. When Regal refused on the spot, Joe charged up the ramp and gave the NXT GM an ultimatum: Make the right choice, or the NXT roster will suffer the consequences.
