A new report from Fightful Select has an update on WWE’s efforts to bring back former NXT Superstar Bronson Reed, aka JONAH.
According to the report, WWE sources indicate that “overtures” have been made toward JONAH. However, those sources would not commit to him returning to WWE or not. One WWE source said that JONAH is a performer who “has improved their stock” since leaving WWE, and has “multiple options to weigh.”
Fightful reached out to JONAH for comment on the rumor, and he neither confirmed nor denied the report. Additionally, another source within WWE noted that JONAH was another superstar that Triple H wanted back in the company. Vince McMahon didn’t see “it” in regards to the former NXT North American Champion.
JONAH was released in August of 2021. He was given “tryout matches,” but the old regime decided to release him rather than promote him to the main roster. JONAH has been working recently with New Japan, though he has been doing so without a contract. He picked up a win over Kazuchika Okada during the G1 Climax 32 tournament in August.
