Samoa Joe: Bio
A world-traveled veteran of the mat game, the 282-pound Samoa 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 thrown down 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 and twice capturing the NXT Title, Joe officially signed to Monday Night Raw in 2017 and has since unleashed his vicious squared circle philosophy on Raw and SmackDown against opponents like AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, and even Brock Lesnar.
Samoa Joe’s path of destruction continues to grow with every beating that he executes, and his roughneck style has earned him multiple United States Championships.
His most recent path has brought Joe back to the black-and-gold brand, where he answered the call to provide assistance to NXT General Manager William Regal after weeks of chaos up and down the roster. As one of the most dangerous threats in recent WWE history, no NXT Superstar would be wise to cross him.
