We haven’t heard anything in terms of WWE’s interest in Samoa Joe. In fact, we can’t even confirm if any such interest exists.
Ring of Honor wants Joe but the budget restrictions we wrote about last week could be a problem. There is a possibility that ROH can only afford to bring Samoa Joe back as a special attraction.
Alberto Del Rio is currently scheduled to finish his commitments with ROH on March 1, 2015, which could open up some cash to spend on Samoa Joe. We’re told Sinclair doesn’t view Joe as a “big star” like Alberto Del Rio and are hesitant to pay him as much.
