It is considered to a better than 50% chance that former TNA headliner Monty Brown will be signing with World Wrestling Entertainment within the next few weeks. The ball seems to be in his court because its up to him if he will take WWE’s offer. The only potential hold-up is said to be if he asks for something out of the ordinary when it comes to the road schedule or money.
Brown was never willing to work indies regularly while in TNA due to his job as a fitness trainer. This would become an issue because of the feeling that he wasn’t improving in the ring to where he could be the company’s top star. In late 2005, there were plans for Brown to beat Jarrett for the title and for the company to be built around him, but the feeling was that he hadn’t picked up his game. Furthermore, Samoa Joe got over big and Christian signed with TNA – which changed plans and threw things out the window for him. Brown ended up unhappy and it ultimately lead to him leaving the promotion.
