Samoa Joe backstage at NXT television tapings

PWInsider.com is reporting that former TNA champion Samoa Joe was backstage at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, yesterday at the NXT television tapings.

Joe, who left TNA a couple of months ago, is rumored to start working for WWE soon with NXT being his initial home. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who was also at the show, wrote on Twitter that it was great to see Joe in Orlando yesterday.

If or when he debuts with WWE, surprisingly enough it would not be Joe’s first time in a WWE ring. In 2001, a blonde Samoa Joe wrestled against Essa Rios on an episode of Jakked in 2001, a match which he lost and a match which is available on WWE’s YouTube channel.
