Samoa Joe Should Be WWE Champion Already

"Don't wait for an opportunity, make one." Samoa Joe has been WWE's version of The Punisher for over two years now, dominating opponents and terrorizing fans alike. His move to Smackdown Live in May has provided some shocking moments to the show, including Joe's savage attack on WWE Champion AJ Styles that set up their match at Summerslam this past Sunday. A two-time NXT Champion and multiple-time champion in other promotions like TNA, Joe has proven to the world that he can hang with the best in any promotion.

I hope Vince McMahon is reading this because I speak for everyone when I say Samoa Joe should be WWE Champion NOW.


Just two days after Summerslam where Joe won via DQ, he (as well as some fans) were angry at the fact that he didn't win the championship. In fact, reports say that McMahon was very close to switching the winner of that match the night of the show.

SO WHY NOT?

Joe has immense potential to be a dominant WWE Champion, and that's someone we need right now in the company. WWE lacks that 'big fight feel' in a superstar like Taz was to ECW or some stars in UFC. Joe is that solution to that drought. Imagine Joe having open challenges with anyone on Smackdown and having instant classics. He puts all of his energy in that ring, so why not capitalize on it and showcase more of his skills and personality.

I love AJ Styles, but Samoa Joe is a different breed of wrestling, a style bred with MMA that has that, yes, 'big fight feel.' A champion like Joe could provide interesting storytelling on Tuesday nights, and even main event some great PPVs like Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, even Royal Rumble. If McMahon realizes how pivotal Joe is to WWE, then Joe shall be champion in no time.

I cheered for Samoa Joe when I visited Brooklyn this past Sunday, and I'll gladly cheer for him after seeing the work he's put in so far in WWE.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
