Impact Wrestling Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore has indicated that the door is open for Samoa Joe to return to the company where he made a name at.
As noted, WWE announced on Thursday that Joe and 9 other wrestlers were released – Mojo Rawley, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Tucker, Wesley Blake, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Kalisto and Bo Dallas. All wrestlers are under a standard 90-day non-compete clause with WWE and are not free to sign with other promotions until Wednesday, July 14.
D’Amore commented on the non-compete and posted the Slammiversary logo in response to a tweet from Joe.
“There has to be an event within days of that 90 days being up that would make the perfect celebration of Joe & friends’ new found freedom… [thinking face emoji x 3],” he wrote.
The Impact Slammiversary pay-per-view usually takes place in June or July. Last year’s show took place on July 18, and July 7 the year before that.
Joe has not responded to D’Amore’s tweet as of this writing, but he did “like” two Impact return-related tweets on Twitter, including one from Eddie Edwards.
Speaking of Joe’s Release, Former WWE announcer Renee Paquette [fka Renee Young] is in disbelief about the decision. Renee tweeted, “How do you drop the ball on SAMOA JOE?!?!? How?! Injuries aside, what a mistake.”
