The widespread belief is that Samoa Joe will be heading overseas and working a sting with New Japan later on this year. However, there are now reports that he might not leave the United States at all. Sources are saying that WWE has contacted the former world heavyweight champion and has put an offer on the table for him to join their developmental program. No word yet on whether or not Joe is interested in doing NXT.

One of the big reasons why people believe that Samoa Joe is going to be heading to New Japan for a stint is the fact that he already has a good amount of friends that are working overseas. The belief is that he would be a perfect candidate to join the red hot Bullet Club stable. His character already has quite the history with AJ Styles, and the move would give him an immediate connection with the audience a good story line to work with.
