A new report indicates that former TNA world champion Samoa Joe will not be accepting any independent wrestling bookings after a specific time. With reports of WWE negotiations underway, this would be a high indicator that a deal has been reached.
Let the speculation begin! Keep in mind that this is all speculation and nothing has been announced officially regarding Samoa Joe’s status. Dave Meltzer on his recent F4WOnline.com podcast reported that independent promoters have been told that Joe will not accept bookings past a certain date. Joe has been in talks with both New Japan Pro Wrestling and the WWE. Meltzer assumes that a deal has been reached with one, and a deal with NJPW wouldn’t take him out of the indy game.
