Let’s revisit that amazing Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn 2-out-of-3 Falls match from NXT

When Seth Rollins went down with a knee injury, WWE had to change the plans it had for the Fastlane pay-per-view on Mar. 5, 2017 in Milwaukee. Samoa Joe no longer had a dance partner for the event, so the powers that be decided to put him opposite one of the best babyface mid-card acts on the Monday Night Raw roster, Sami Zayn.

This is a good thing for a number of reasons, perhaps most of all because we know they can tear the house down. We know this because they did exactly that in a balls to the wall 2-out-of-3 Falls number one contender match on NXT television back on Mar. 9, 2016.

Watch it in full above. We won’t be getting anything at that level this time around but let’s hope they can come close.
