The TNA exodus to NXT continues — Eric Young just surprised Full Sail by appearing at tonight’s TV taping and made an impact (pun intended) by confronting the company’s champion.
Sources in attendance tell us Samoa Joe stood in the ring gloating about his big NXT Title win over Finn Balor, when music for Young suddenly hit and he received a HUGE ovation walking to the ring.
We’re told the wrestlers exchanged words, but Joe walked off before coming to blows.
The two eventually faced off later in the night though and the champ won their match.
No word on what kind of deal E.Y. has signed with the company at this point — but the TNA revival in NXT is now going strong with Joe, Young, Austin Aries and possibly Bobby Roode.
