Samoa Joe is back!
It was a huge night of returns and the first half-hour of Raw was completely stacked when Kurt Angle was announced as returning to the ring and instructed to captain team Raw at Survivor Series. Not long after, Nia Jax returned to replace Alicia Fox. If that wasn't enough to stack the first hour, we were treated to a Samoa Joe return as well.
"It seems by the response when I walked out here that some of you have missed me. I personally find that very amusing as I haven't missed any of you! Let's face it, how many of you around the world reached out to me... how many of you actually cared? The answer my friends is none of you, therefore I care about none of you. In fact, I will use your disrespect as fuel on any man who steps in the ring with me."

Unfortunately for Apollo Crews, he was that man.
Heading into Survivor Series, Joe will now be a part of the red brand as they take on a SmackDown Live squad that deserves a bit of Raw revenge. Joe wasn't part of the roster that got beat down by SmackDown Live Superstars, but he'll do Raw general manager Kurt Angle's bidding just the same.
Crews did his best to match up with Joe but it was simply not enough as Crews tapped out and Joe returned with a vengeance. Titus O'Neil then stepped into the ring in an effort to stop the attack and perhaps ensure Joe no longer made his member of Titus Worldwide look foolish. O'Niel removed his jacket, turned his back on Joe and Joe hooked on the coquina clutch.
Needless to say, Joe as back, he was angry and he was out to prove a point to the WWE Universe, the rest of the Raw roster and perhaps Kurt Angle who was still responsible for choosing the rest of his team members for the Raw squad that would head to Survivor Series.
Would Joe become a part of the team? Would he even accept if Angle asked? If Angle made Joe's participation mandatory, would he be willing to get along with the rest of the team. For now, it appears Joe is a one-man wrecking crew.
