    Joe is NXT Champion and Styles is in a main event match for the world title. I never thought I’d see the day when TNA guys are main eventing a WWE event. You gotta love it.

    New champ. Now please get some new music. They can make better bad guy music than the one he is using.

      Samoa Joe is synonymous with 1 song IMO, and if thats not his theme song, WWE is messing up, but AJ’s new theme is pretty garbage too, so its not like its out of their realm to mess up in that area.

      • Mr.???

        i liked the last theme he used before leaving tna.
