There are reports beginning to circulate that WWE is interested in signing Jay Lethal to work down in NXT. This isn’t new and something we brought to you on August 19, 2015 here on Below is our original story:

WWE have expressed interest in ROH Champion Jay Lethal. It’s no secret that WWE is now focused on the indy market with NXT and taking ROH’s champion and running in their markets with their type of shows would be a big blow to Ring of Honor.

This is more complicated then one might think. While WWE usually gets what they want, Lethal isn’t someone that is just going to jump ship for the sake of jumping ship. He’s not a big spender and as ROH’s top guy, he’s making better money than he would in NXT right now. But money isn’t the only issue as it’s believed he would have concerns about how WWE would book him.

Lethal is very happy with his status in Ring of Honor and enjoys the way he is portrayed by them. That will likely prove to be WWE’s biggest obstacle in trying to pry him away from ROH because he’s more about respect than going to WWE only to end up with a bad gimmick. However, the note to make is WWE is interested and have targeted him as a big name signing.
