• Samoa Joe Explains Why He Is Relinquishing The NXT Championship
Samoa Joe posted a video where he announced that he is relinquishing the NXT Championship.
Here’s Joe explanation:
“Recently WWE medical has informed me that due to certain injuries, they’d like to have me step away from the ring for a brief, but indeterminate amount of time.
I realize this week we are on the cusp of a new NXT, we are on the brink of a new era in our history, and that era deserves a fighting champion. That’s why it makes a difficult decision very easy to make. Effective immediately, I relinquish the NXT championship.
Best of luck to those who will vie for it. My sincerest condolences to whoever wins, because I will be along shortly to recollect what is mine.”
