• Update On Why Samoa Joe Hasn’t Returned To WWE Programming

RAW Superstar Samoa Joe got suspended for 30 days earlier this year after he violated WWE’s Wellness Policy.

Those 30 days of suspension ended a few weeks back, but Joe still hasn’t returned to WWE programming.

It should be noted that Joe being away from WWE programming was due to two reasons – being suspended and suffering two concussions in a short period of time.

Joe suffered the first concussion while hitting a suicide dive during a match, and the second one was while filming a RAW commercial.

According to the Wrestling Observer, while Joe’s suspension is over, he still hasn’t been cleared by WWE doctors to return to in-ring action due to his concussions.

WWE takes concussions very seriously these days, so they’re aren’t going to rush by making Samoa Joe return to action.
