Former TNA and ROH World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe is WWE-bound once his current set of indie dates are done.
Dave Meltzer reports that Joe would be going to NXT instead of straight to the main roster. During WrestleMania weekend, he appeared at Jim Ross’ one man only shows and talked about wanting to have a major WrestleMania 32 match with Brock Lesnar.
He also talked about going to NXT or the main roster and which he’d prefer, he gave a very political answer that he’d be fine wherever they put him.
It will be interesting to see if WWE makes an announcement before his début like they have done with Kevin Owens, Hideo Itami and Finn Balor, or just have him appear out of the blue.
