Pwinsider.com later shared some details about Joe returning to NXT.
Mike Johnson wrote, “Triple H ‘snatched him back’ as soon as possible. One source told PWInsider.com that the second a decision by others to ‘let Joe back on the board’, Triple H was not happy and wanted him back in NXT as opposed to being elsewhere outside of WWE’s auspices.”
Joe was released by WWE back in April due to budget cuts. He previously joined the company and worked in NXT back in 2015.
