Samoa Joe main roster

When it was revealed earlier that Samoa Joe had impressed WWE so much that they offered him a full time contract, the internet wrestling community began to wonder if that meant that he was going to be placed on the main roster immediately. Fans are going to have to wait a couple of months, as management needs the former world heavyweight champion to be the focal point of NXT, as star power on the developmental roster has dwindled a bit.

Samoa Joe signed full time

For years, WWE decided to neglect Samoa Joe every time that he was a free agent. Apparently, that was a mistake. Now that the former world heavyweight champion has been signed to a developmental deal, he was able to impress management is a short period of time. The front office was so impressed with his work, the buzz he created and his merchandise sales that they decided to upgrade him to a full time deal instead.

Samoa Joe winning NXT belt

Since the current heavyweight champion is set to make a permanent move to the main roster, management is going to need someone new to hold the NXT belt. The top candidate right now is Samoa Joe, especially with all of the injuries that have hampered the roster. The belief is that Joe will defend the championship against a couple of opponents over the following months before making a jump to the main roster himself.

The amount of time has yet to be revealed, but he will be off of television for at least the next month.

Samoa Joe not signing with WWE

Professional wrestling fans have been ecstatic over the rumors that Samoa Joe is going to finally join NXT. That might no longer be the case, as the former world heavyweight champion has signed on for an event with Northeast Wrestling in August. He would not have done that if he was on the verge of signing a contract with WWE because the promotion does not usually allow their performers to work for another company.
