WWE: Bob Sapp nagotiations update

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Bob Sapp is close to reaching a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Unfortunately for those interested in seeing Sapp on WWE television, the deal being talked about only involves appearances during Japan house show events in February.

WWE has lost some bankability with the Japanese audience, its presence no longer guarantees a sellout, and wants to bolster its cards with a proven Japanese draw.
Negotiations to bring Sapp to WWE on a full-time basis have not advanced.
