Tommaso Ciampa Wants Samoa Joe In A WWE NXT Ring
Submission Machine vs. Sicilian Psychopath - what could possibly go wrong
Samoa Joe’s unceremonious WWE release and subsequent NXT return has been one of the biggest wrestling stories of the year.
It is believed that Joe hasn’t been cleared to compete in a WWE ring (for now), but if that were to change, Tomasso Ciampa would like to face off against the Samoan Submission Machine:
“I would love it if he would be just in the ring,” Ciampa said to ViBe and Wrestling. “I know right now Mr. Regal needed some help, an enforcer. Hopefully over time things settle down, though now Cole and Kyle are having something hot and heavy and there is a lot of chaos going on. When things do settles down I much rather see Samoa Joe ‘the wrestler’ more than Samoa Joe the ‘Authority figure’. I’d would love to get in the ring with him.
“We had, like you said, one televised match back on 2015 or 2016, was short 6 to 8 minutes or so. He is one of the guys I’ve followed for so long and the idea of wrestling him on a TakeOver, on a big stage or in front of a live crowd? I would be lying to you if I tell you that is something I’ve never thought of. That’s the Joe I’d love to see. I’d love to see a ‘Joe is gonna kill you’ versus ‘Ciampa is gonna kill you’ type of match. I don’t know if it would ever happen but if the opportunity presents itself I would sign myself up.”
