• Update On Samoa Joe’s In-Ring Status
Samoa Joe has been out of action over the past couple of months due to a concussion he suffered while filming a RAW commercial.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that it doesn’t look like Joe will be back in action anytime soon. He hasn’t been cleared to compete yet.
Joe is currently a part of the commentary team on RAW, but WWE doesn’t want him to wrestle because he’s had a few concussions, which is “not a good thing”.
It was also noted that Joe is “far too valuable as a wrestler” to be sitting on the commentary desk. However, his return may take time as WWE is very cautious with concussions.
