Samoa Joe made his return at last night’s Ring of Honor 13 anniversary show on pay-per-view in Las Vegas. Joe came out before the main event and announced that he intends to win Jay Briscoe’s World Heavyweight title. On the surface it would appear that ROH has world title plans for Joe but his stay in ROH may be a short one.
Dave Meltzer reported on this morning’s Wrestling Observer radio that promoters have been told that Joe is not taking independent dates after April 23rd. Coincidentally that is the date of the next NXT tapings. There has been interest in Joe from several promotions including WWE. Also, for those that may not remember, Samoa Joe and Triple H were following each other on twitter at one point last year so he is definitely on WWE’s radar.
