Even though he had been at odds throughout certain points of long tenure with the company, there is still a chance that Samoa Joe could be returning to TNA in the future. When he informed management that he was going to seek other opportunities in the industry, they told him that there was no backstage heat on him for leaving. Officials also informed the former world heavyweight champion that the door for a return would remain open for him.
