While doing an interview with The Independent, Dean Ambrose specifically mentioned that he would love to wrestle a match against Samoa Joe, as that would be something new for his character. Ambrose stated that since he has been around WWE for a while now, he has worked with just about everyone on the main roster. There are currently no plans in place for Joe to be elevated to the main roster any time soon, unfortunately.

Since he has not been with the company for too long, a lot of fans were disappointed that Samoa Joe was not going to be in WWE 2K16. However, the producers of the video game have rectified that situation by creating a downloadable version of his character. The former world heavyweight champion is one of five characters that will be included in the Future Stars Pack, which is available for $7.99.

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.
