Samoa Joe did not compete at Thursday night’s WWE NXT live show because was uncleared. He watched the main event of Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger vs. Bobby Roode and Andrade “Cien” Almas from ringside.
WrestlingInc says that Samoa Joe seemed to be less involved in his last few matches at the NXT show in Melbourne, Australia on 12/8, the Newcastle show on 12/10, the Gold Coast show on 12/12, and the Sydney show on 12/13. It is said that he did not do any big spots or do too much work in the ring at all those events. There is no official word, though, on Joe being injured yet.
