Samoa Joe is reported to be close to signing a WWE deal.
It is being claimed by Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline that Joe is in negotiations with WWE and, although an agreement is yet to be signed, all signs point to a deal being done soon.
It is being said that Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque is a big backstage supporter of Joe and is the main executive pushing for the deal. If all goes through, Joe will likely join the likes of Aaron Neville, Sami Zayn, Finn Balor and Kevin Owens in NXT.
Joe recently returned to Ring of Honor and is booked for several dates with them up to the end of March, so any contract would not be signed and sealed before then.
He recently left TNA after working for the group for ten years.
