When NXT taped a batch of episodes back on July 13 - for shows that will lead us all the way into Aug. 20’s TakeOver: Back to Brooklyn special - there was a segment focused on the men’s title feud which was so good we couldn’t wait to share a very good photo of it with you.
That scene, which consisted of #1 contender Shinsuke Nakamura playing mind games with champion Samoa Joe by toying with him by doing things like playing the kid’s game “got your nose” while the champ was restrained by security, finally aired last night (Aug. 10) on WWE Network.
So it was time for the Emperor to retort:
Back at HQ decompressing. Keep the nose, I'm coming for your soul. #TakeoverBrooklyn pic.twitter.com/ikZKZKJLhw— Samoa Joe (@SamoaJoe) August 11, 2016
A week from this Saturday, nothing will be safe. Not noses. Not souls. And certainly not pants.
