As noted last week, Samoa Joe confirmed that he and WWE have been in talks. ProWrestling.net sources have confirmed that he is expected to sign with WWE next month. Joe’s run with ROH was scheduled to end next month but now sources say that he will finish up with ROH during WrestleMania weekend in Redwood City, California.
Joe is only expected to work independent dates in April before he moves to WWE. The presumption is that he will start out on NXT.
As noted earlier today, Jimmy Jacobs has been signed as well and will be working on the WWE creative team.
