Samoa Joe is currently a free agent after his WWE release in January. Of course this had lead to speculation on where he will show up next.
Many AEW fans have fantasy booked Samoa Joe in all kinds of matches and feuds. There is so many great matchups for the guy that this doesn’t come as a surprise.
Samoa Joe recently appeared on Busted Open and talked about who’d he’d like to wrestle in AEW if he got the chance, one of them being former AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley:
“Obviously I know tons of guys over there [in AEW]. Outside of guys that I probably haven’t already worked with, hmm, it’s always a tough call because I worked with so many of them already. I think… I really like Willie Hobbs. He’s a guy, I think he’s really impressive and I think he has a lot of ceiling he hasn’t even begun to reach yet, and you know, I never got a really clean crack at [Jon] Moxley. I think Jon’s a guy who I’d love to be in a program with at some point wherever it may be so, and I mean those are kind of the two guys that stick out off the top of my head. Everybody else, I’ve kind of worked with. I mean obviously I would love to be back in the ring with them again so I mean, those are kind of the ones that I haven’t worked with that kind of stick out in my mind.”
Samoa Joe is one of the true greats from the past 20 years. If there’s a possibility of him showing up in AEW then im sure many fans will be happy to see him. Joe vs Mox or Hobbs are both really great matchups
