– We noted before that Samoa Joe has now signed a full-time deal with WWE but will still be fulfilling his indie dates that were booked. Ring of Honor has confirmed that Joe will still be working their June 20th TV tapings in New York City, in what appears to be Joe’s final ROH appearance. Absolute Intense Wrestling in Cleveland has added Joe to their July 10th show, which was announced last night.
Joe is currently booked for the big WWE NXT live events in Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH this month. For those wondering, PWInsider reports that Joe is not currently booked for tonight’s WWE SmackDown tapings so unless things change, he won’t be the Superstar to answer NXT Champion Kevin Owens’ open challenge.
