According to reports, former TNA star Samoa Joe is expected to sign with WWE soon. There’s no deal signed as of now, but both sides are expected to reach an agreement soon. Triple H is said to be a fan of Joe and is behind the deal.
In related news, Samoa Joe’s first match back in ROH will be against the current ROH Tag Team Champion Kyle O’Reilly.
The following statement was issued by ROH Wrestling:
“Ring Of Honors 13th Anniversary Pay Per View saw the return of the former ROH World Champion Samoa Joe!
The raucous crowd in Sin City listened intently as he made it known that he is coming back for the championship which he held for a record setting 645 days!
That path starts this Saturday night in Baltimore against one half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions, Kyle O’Reilly. This is a dream match-up for many. The two have very similar hard hitting, MMA based styles. O’Reilly is clearly an elite tag team wrestler as one half of reDRagon. A win over the record setting former world champion would add to O’Reilly’s already impressive resume. The Samoan Submission Machine is not coming home to lose! He is here to regain the ROH World Championship. Can O’Reilly stop him? Can anyone stop him?
