Wrestling Fans Are Loving Samoa Joe Joining Aew At Supercard Of Honor

At the Supercard of Honor, Samoa Joe made his return to the Ring of Honor, and Tony Khan declared that he was now officially all elite. Wrestling fans reacted to the news in a variety of ways.

On Friday, April 1, Ring of Honor returned under the ownership of AEW and Tony Khan with the Supercard of Honor show. A tremendous surprise awaited the audience at the conclusion of the main event.

Following Jonathan Gresham’s victory over Bandido in the main event to become the undisputed ROH World Champion, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt assaulted Gresham and Lee Moriarty. Then the music started playing, and Samoa Joe returned to the Ring of Honor! Joe then choked out Dutt, bringing the night to a close.

Following that, Khan revealed that Joe is now officially “All Elite” and that he will feature on the April 6 edition of AEW Dynamite.

Wrestling fans were understandably ecstatic to see Joe return to ROH and then sign a contract with AEW.

Tony Khan was like, “ROH is cool, but what if Minoru Suzuki was a champion and Samoa Joe came back?” and then he just did it.
