Samson was starting to find himself in NXT before his injury with his biggest feud being with Apollo Crews, who defeated him before “Takeover: Dallas”. The injury sidelined him for several months and stripped him of his momentum but he’s back with what seems to be the same character before he was put on the shelf.
Samson being back is a nice addition to the roster which is suddenly riddled by injuries. With Hideo Itami and Austin Aries out for the foreseeable future, there’s a very nice spot in the middle of the card for someone like Samson to come in and get a good push for himself. He’ll need to get a better finisher but the tools are mostly there.
