Since he did such a good job during the first match, NXT officials are thinking about having Tyler Breeze as the primary opponent for Jushin Liger, who recently signed a new contract with WWE that will see him working additional dates. Finn Balor and Samoa Joe are two other potential candidates to work against the legend from Japan. Main roster guys such as Adrian Neville could be brought down for a match as well.

Since the current heavyweight champion is set to make a permanent move to the main roster, management is going to need someone new to hold the NXT belt. The top candidate right now is Samoa Joe, especially with all of the injuries that have hampered the roster. The belief is that Joe will defend the championship against a couple of opponents over the following months before making a jump to the main roster himself.

One of the big reasons why people believe that Samoa Joe is going to be heading to New Japan for a stint is the fact that he already has a good amount of friends that are working overseas. The belief is that he would be a perfect candidate to join the red hot Bullet Club stable. His character already has quite the history with AJ Styles, and the move would give him an immediate connection with the audience a good story line to work with.
