“You just don’t mess with good things,” said Joe. “They decided not to do it with me. It wasn’t something I had to champion much for. I think NXT was transcending it’s status of being a developmental league. I think Hunter, with it being his brainchild, he wanted to add some momentum, and bringing me in was a big part of that and he understood what I brought to the table.”
It‚Äôs been almost a full year since Joe joined NXT. He just defeated Finn Balor at a live event to win his first NXT Championship.
