• Samoa Joe Gives An Update On His In-Ring Status, If His Career Is Over
During an interview with SK Wrestling, current WWE Superstar Samoa Joe talked about when he plans to return to the ring as an active WWE Wrestler.
Joe, who was once a WWF developmental wrestler and even did some televised jobs in 2001, has been out of action since early 2020 due to a concussion and has since done commentary on Monday Night RAW.
Here’s what The Samoan Submission Machine had to say on whether he knows when he’ll be back in the ring:
“As far as the timetable, no, but I just want to reassure people that at this point, WWE medical is doing the best for my health and my well-being, and I’m appreciative of it, so we’re taking our time.
We’re making sure that I’m as healthy as I can be. And we are…Yeah, I think that’s essentially it, you know.
I’m not putting a timetable on it because the type of injury is not something that I want to rush, obviously, for obvious reasons. So, yeah, I mean, that’s essentially the update.
I mean, and obviously, too, there’s been some holdups from a technical standpoint with the pandemic going on and availability of medical personnel, but for the most part, we’re taking a careful, measured approach and though I don’t think my in-ring career is over by a longshot, I’m appreciative of the recovery time and that my health is being respected at a premium.”
