There have been a lot of rumors this week about Samoe Joe’s status with WWE. The latest rumor is that he would be showing up at the NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable show this Wednesday. Joe has gotten himself into great shape as well so that has fueled the rumors. It’s interesting to note that Joe is booked for an independent show on August 1st. I know that he is also booked for shows in June.
The Northeast Wrestling facebook page posted the following:
There are many rumors where Samoa Joe may be going or where he may end up. NEW fans there is one thing for sure – this is not a rumor this is a fact. Samoa Joe returns to Northeast Wrestling as a part of our Wrestling Under the Stars Tour on Saturday, August 1st at Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, NY and Sunday, August 2nd at a location to be announced next week.
On August 1st he will be joined by Rey Mysterio, Alberto El Patron fka Alberto Del Rio, The Young Bucks, Mickie James, Velvet Sky, NEW Champion Matt Taven, Brian Anthony and many other superstars to be announced. Tickets for this event are on sale now at www.northeastwrestling.com
It’s very possible that WWE is just letting him finish out some of his independent commitments. Joe was spotted backstage at a show in Orlando a couple of weeks ago and reportedly met with Triple H. We’ll see what happens on Wednesday.
