Over the past two months, the WWE has portrayed Samoa Joe as a hired gun for the McMahon family because he believed that Triple H was the only person who was willing to give him an opportunity in the company. As a result of this, Joe decided to pledge his loyalty to HHH and follow his orders at all times. A perfect example of this is when Seth Rollins was about to fight Triple H for the first time since he screwed him out of the universal title, Joe came from behind and attacked Seth for Triple H. However, over the past week, Vince has completely undone the purpose behind his character. This is because Joe didn’t come out to help HHH in his match vs. Seth. Therefore Vince essentially told the fans that the backstory to Joe’s character was a complete lie. If Vince wanted HHH and Seth to have a match without any interference, he could’ve told the creative team to write a backstage segment where HHH tells Joe not to interfere. Unfortunately, this did not happen which erased the purpose of Joe’s character and why he came to the main roster in the first place.
If the WWE wanted to portray Samoa Joe as a hired gun for the McMahon family, they should’ve shown HHH backstage on the phone discussing a contract with an unknown person. Later that evening HHH calls out Seth for a fight, as Seth is coming to the ring Joe attacks him. Next week, HHH cuts a promo saying that I’ve hired Joe to soften Seth up for Wrestlemania. Over the next couple of weeks, Seth would try to find HHH, but each time he got close to him Joe would be there to protect HHH and in the process soften up Seth. During Wrestlemania Joe would help HHH win the match and the next night he would receive an envelope full of money as his job was complete. In the next few months the McMahon family would repeatedly call Joe to handle their problems, and once he was done, he got the envelope. After a few months of being a hired gun, Joe would cut a promo thanking the McMahon family for giving him the opportunity to give his family the life he never had financially. As a result of this, his priorities in the WWE have changed because he no longer is offering his services to be a hired gun and will shift his focus towards getting the universal title. The McMahon family is enraged by the news because they have nobody else to do their dirty work. Due to this, HHH attacks him setting up a Wrestlemania match which Joe wins thus opening the door for him to enter the title picture.
