WWE 2016 Rumors: Samoa Joe Lines Up To Tame The ‘Beast Incarnate’ Next
Brock Lesnar lost to Bill Goldberg at WWE Survivor Series though everyone knows both will eventually collide once more. The belief is that they will face off at WrestleMania 33 for a rubber match though the angle needs to be worked on.
That may all happen at the Royal Rumble set for January 2017. Goldberg entered his name to the 30-man battle and now it looks like Lesnar will be in it as well, ProWrestlingSheet reported. If so, there is a fair chance that both may eventually face-off once more though it depends on their entry number.
There is a possibility that scripts will be changed depending on the scenario. Lesnar and Goldberg could eliminate themselves or cost the other a title opportunity, which automatically sets up a new storyline. There is also a possibility that a third party comes into the picture. Right now, that individual could be Samoa Joe.
Joe has been lording it over WWE NXT though a passing of the torch seems to be in the works. The Samoan is currently in a feud with Shinsuke Nakamura – seen as the new big dog for the NXT brand.
Samoa Joe has been with WWE NXT for a year now and critics believe that it is time for the former TNA star to move up. If so, Joe wants a shot at Lesnar. He admitted he wanted to lock up with Lesnar, carrying the physique that could prove to be interesting, Forbes reported.
"For selfish reasons, I’d like to see Brock stand tall until I get my hands on him... I’d like to see Brock pull through so I can get my shot at him.”
Hence, there are a lot of storylines and twists likely to happen at the Royal Rumble. The WWE could surprise many once again, similar to the shocking win of Goldberg over Lesnar at WWE Survivor Series. Could that include booking Brock Lesnar against Samoa Joe instead of Goldberg?
