Re: Why Samoa Joe?
I think it's a great choice - exactly who I was hoping for. Joe is a fan favourite, intimidating and great in the ring. Give him a few months squashing people whilst slowly building the Magnus feud for the title. Joe being TV champ will give the belt legitimacy and hopefully a slow burn, intense feud (like they did with Storm and Roode) will make the title seem like it's something worth fighting for whilst putting both Joe and Magnus over. Then a few months down the line (maybe the London tapings?) Magnus can get the belt and it can start to be used to put the younger/midcard guys over. I know a lot of people here hate him, but I think a Magnus/Gunner feud for a newly-invigorated TV title could have some legs..... Both powerful guys, but one is strategic and articulate, the other is an intense nutter. I think it could work and is exactly what the younger guys need.
