Tama Tonga, a multi-time champion in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), has reportedly signed with WWE, according to wrestling news outlet Fightful Select. This move comes after a period of significant talent departures from NJPW, including Will Ospreay, Kazuchika Okada, and Mercedes Mone.

While the other departing stars are expected to join AEW, Tonga is taking a different path by heading to WWE. The date of his debut and whether he will be on the main roster or "WWE NXT" remain unconfirmed.



This signing has been years in the making, as WWE has reportedly shown interest in Tonga for nearly a decade. Both sides have engaged in talks on multiple occasions. When Tonga announced his departure from NJPW after winning the NEVER Openweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 18, WWE was heavily rumored to be his next destination.

Tonga, son of legendary Tongan wrestler Haku, is a founding member of Bullet Club, a popular wrestling stable. Interestingly, several of his former Bullet Club comrades, AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows, have recently had increased presence on WWE television as "The OC," a version of Bullet Club within the company.

Additionally, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently mentioned "Uncle Haku," acknowledging Haku's close ties to the Samoan Anoa'i Dynasty, which includes Rock's father Rocky Johnson. This reference further strengthens the connection between Tonga and WWE.
