UPDATE: Samoa Joe has issued a statement on his release from WWE, saying he’s excited for the future of NXT’s talent – as well as his own. As noted, Joe was released from his WWE contract as part of the cuts to NXT and the WWE Performance Center staff, with the news breaking today.

Joe posted to his Twitter account, writing:

“Extremely fortunate and grateful to all the young & amazing talent I had the pleasure of working with in the past months. Only saddened at the loss of an “excuse” to see their continued growth & achievement . I am very excited for there future,….. and mine”

ORIGINAL: Samoa Joe’s time with WWE is at an end, as he has been released by the company. Sean Ross Sapp has confirmed with WWE that Joe has been released from his contract.

Joe was originally released from the company in April of 2021 as part of last year’s post-WrestleMania roster cuts. He was brought back soon after in June and appeared as an enforcer for the (now-released) William Regal before returning to the ring and defeating Karrion Kross in August for the NXT Championship in his first match back.

However, Joe then had to vacate the title in September of that year due to an injury. He had not returned to TV since then.
