Yeah I think a face turn is in the pipeline as well, the reactions he's getting and his bad-ass attitude and dominant kick ass ring style are all better suited to being a face in the WWE environment. Shame because I think he's excellent as the heel/tweener bad ass destroyer and WWE don't have enough heels like that.

I hope he gets another crack at Lesnar but looking at current storylines I reckon the best he can hope for is a multi-person match that will also likely involve Reigns and Strowman.

Quote On the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer speculated on what will be next feud for Samoa Joe. As previously reported, he is rumored to return to the Raw roster by the end of October.

According to Meltzer, Braun Strowman could be the top choice for Joe’s next opponent if he returns before WWE TLC. It also speculated that Finn Balor would be a potential opponent for Joe to face as well, though this feud would only happen if Balor isn’t Lesnar’s opponent at Survivor Series this year, which is rumored for the show.

Joe has been off TV, dealing with a knee injury.

 
Lazy booking to have him return in his old heel persona against one of those two.
 
He gets too many pops for an affective heel and when he returns it will be to a babyface reaction.
 
Be interesting to see if they can find a way for him to be booed by the fanbase that have missed him.

I'd like to see him v Braun - they seemed to make a point of mentioning several times in the lead up to the title match that they had never really crossed each others paths on a 1v1 scale

Not sure why Balor is choice for facing lesnar at summerslam by the way - hes probably as charismatic as Jinder Mahal and even his feud with Wyatt hasnt really changed how boring he is when he starts talking

Glad to see Joe back and he got a great reception from the crowd

He is another one who should be allowed to dominate for team Raw at SS - assuming he gets onto the team

As i stated above - id like to see him and Braun have some sort of 1 v 1 feud because they are both booked like absolute machines and it would be an excellent feud IMO

Could tell he'd been out for months. A lot of ring rust even in a very short match.

He'd had an operation to improve his breathing (he mentioned 8 broken noses in his career) and yet he was blowing out of his arse in a couple of minutes.

It's a shame they have kept him heel as Raw really needs a super over babyface.

I'm sure being out injured for a while would take it out of you anyways never mind when you have had surgery

Hopefully he keeps getting some tune up matches so he can play a bigger part at SS

I don't mind seeing guys get blown up in the ring. People always liked to give the Ultimate Warrior shit for blowing up just on the way to the ring, but the fact is, Warrior still would compete at a high level and still look pretty crisp. What sucks is when they get slow and sluggish and act like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels going into overtime on their iron Man match after 5-10 minutes. It can be forgiven of guys in a match with Lesnar where all they do is exchange finishers but in any other case it just looks bad.

Much better performance cardio wise this week. Big difference to the week before.

No idea how long his tour house show matches have been going for, but wrestling every night for pretty much two weeks has got him back up to standard very quickly.

He got some good pops. Still got to think his future has to be as a face.

They still missed a good opportunity for a bigger reaction as he came out during Titus entrance so we didnt get the normal Joe chants during his own entrance

Joe will be good with anyone, as either heel for face. Quite honestly I'd say he's being wasted on the Raw Roster and should be on Smackdown, and kicking Jinder Mahal into the back seat where he belongs. Joe could easily be the top heel of smackdown and it's a shame he isn't.
