Samoa Joe was spotted backstage at Thursday’s WWE NXT tapings in Winter Park, Florida.
We’re told that he was scheduled to meet with WWE officials about finalizing an agreement to come work for the company.
Reports leaked out earlier this week that he was expected to begin with WWE in June. We can confirm that a deal was not finalized prior to a scheduled meeting on Thursday. Whether or not a deal was completed today is unknown but we can confirm he was there and was scheduled to talk about a contract.
Joe left TNA Wrestling earlier this year and has been working the independent circuit, including dates with Ring of Honor.
