Samoa Joe Returning To Raw, 8-Man Tag Match Announced

WWE has announced an 8-man tag team main event for Monday’s Raw.

Samoa Joe will return to action to team with Kevin Owens and The Viking Raiders to face Seth Rollins, Murphy & AOP.

To put rumors to rest, Samoa Joe was not suspended for a WWE Wellness Policy Violation. In fact, WrestleVotes has retracted their statement from last week that hinted more suspensions (including Joe’s) were on the way.

Also of note, WWE has apparently dropped “Buddy” from Buddy Murphy’s name on dot com. He’ll simply be referred to as “Murphy” going forward.

In addition to the 8-man tag bout, Raw will feature Asuka vs. Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship.
