Officials Investigating Samoa Joe’s attack on Crimson – New Footage & Details
Fans started emailing us on Wednesday afternoon regarding a video circulating the internet of Samoa Joe assaulting Crimson in a bar from this past Saturday. IMPACT WRESTLING officials are looking into the matter, but have declined to comment thus far. You can watch the footage below, which was shot by another customer. We obtained the video from the customer’s YouTube Channel.
Samoa Joe will face Crimson this Sunday at Slammiversary on Pay-Per-View and online at TNAOnDemand.com
Crimson responded via his Twitter account @OfficialCrimson:
“So a video of an altercation with me an Joe has hit the internet…not a proud moment for me but it shows you what a tough guy Samoa Joe really is to come to my spot on my time to fight.. I’m still alive Joe and I’ll be sober Sunday..hope you’re ready for the fight of your life..”
