Even though he is signed to a contract with WWE now, Samoa Joe is scheduled to make a return to ROH and work a television taping.

Back when he was a free agent, Alberto Del Rio was fielding offers from several companies. One of those companies was UFC. The promotion really wanted the former world heavyweight champion to come in and do a couple of fights. However, Del Rio was forced to reject their offer because the two sides could not come to terms on money. He stated that he was doing so well in professional wrestling that it would be a pay cut to jump to MMA.

Since he has long been known as one of the mot controversial characters in all of professional wrestling, the belief was that Scott Steiner would not be joining another major promotion again. However, it appears that his close relationship with Jeff Jarrett has proven that to be wrong. GFW has signed Steiner and added him to their roster. While there is a slight chance he may wrestle, the belief is that he will simply be doing appearances for them.

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.

Since they have increased their popularity and name value over the past year, the Young Bucks were heavily sought after. TNA was one of the companies that tried to sign them. Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson opted to go with Jeff Jarrett instead because they wanted to see just how far he can take the GFW promotion. Plus, the schedule in Global Force Wrestling will enable them to continue being stars in New Japan, where they are beloved.
