Update On Terms Of Samoa Joe’s WWE Deal, Joe To Continue Working Outside WWE

Samoa Joe, who finally made his WWE debut at the NXT Takeover: Unstoppable event on Wednesday, is expected to work tonight’s NXT television tapings at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

For those wondering, Joe indeed agreed to a deal with WWE to work in NXT, and the effort to bring Joe in was said to be spearheaded by Triple H.

For now, Joe is scheduled to continue working existing and future independent dates that he has on the books. For example, Joe is still scheduled to work the JT Lightning Memorial Tournament this weekend in Cleveland, Ohio. Joe’s deal also includes a merchandise agreement.

While the deal could always grow into a full-fledged, exclusive-WWE deal, as of last night, it’s believed that Joe has not signed an exclusive deal with the company. While it is a new type of deal for WWE, they clearly thought Joe was someone that they could try this type of deal out with.

Speaking of Joe’s debut, he tweeted the following after appearing at the NXT special last night.
