As for Samoa Joe, WWE said he “remains part of the WWE talent roster.”
Last night’s Raw was the first at the new home of the ThunderDome at the University Of South Florida’s Yuengling Center.
There will be a retirement ceremony for Jazz on Thursday’s Impact Wrestling. Jazz lost a Career vs. Title match to Knockouts Champ Deonna Purrazzo on Saturday’s Hardcore Justice show. Impact released some comments from Jazz just moments after that match.
