Samoa Joe: WWE NXT's Women's Roster Is A Murderer’s Row Of Top-Tier, Internationally-Certified Talent
Joe has a lot of praise for the NXT women's division
Samoa Joe has a lot of love for the NXT roster, particularly the talent in the women's division.
NXT Women's roster has been widely heralded as one of the best in professional wrestling today, with the likes of Io Shirai, Shotzi Blackheart, Raquel Gonzalez and Ember Moon regularly impressing.
With Franky Monet, Sarray, Toni Storm and Zoey Stark all added to the roster in the last couple of months too, it's a division that continue to go from strength-to-strength.
Joe has noted the biggest reason for his return to NXT is down to the people he gets to work with on the black-and-gold brand, making particular note of how strong the women's division is.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Joe said: A lot of why I’m back is the people I’m working with in NXT. It starts with the passion of Hunter and Shawn Michaels, who is an incredible mind.
"I’m amazed at the women on the roster. They’re beyond incredible. Some are very young in their careers, and they’re exceptional—look at how Raquel [González], she’s been fantastic. Then look at Ember Moon, Dakota Kai, Io Shirai.
"It’s a murderer’s row of top-tier, internationally-certified talent. NXT, they’re putting out an incredible wrestling program."
