Seth Rollins, meet Samoa Joe.
Joe made his Monday Night RAW debut at the last segment of the post-Royal Rumble episode of RAW.
Rollins’ night started when he called out Stephanie McMahon to the ring and try and pick a fight with Triple H. Rollins invaded NXT TakeOver: San Antonio to confront Triple H only for security to throw him out of the building. Rollins was then banned from the Alamodome for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Stephanie then said Triple H would be coming to RAW to face Rollins.
After Triple H came to the ring at the tail end of RAW to announce he will be Rollins’ “destroyer,” the former Shield member walked through the ramp and was attacked out of nowhere by Joe.
Joe’s career in WWE is highlighted by his two title reigns as NXT Champion. Joe had not been appearing on NXT shows for several weeks and had rumored to be a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble, but never appeared in the whole show.
Before coming to WWE, Joe was a former Ring of Honor World Champion and held a number of titles on TNA, including the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, X Division Championship, World Tag Team Championship, among other titles that he has won.
