Samoa Joe

Was Samoa Joe’s Injury A Storyline Decision?


Following Samoa Joe relinquishing his NXT Championship on Sunday due to an injury, there has been mounting speculation on the legitimacy of the aforementioned injury.

A new report from PWInsider however, has offered some clarity on various aspects regarding the injury.

The report notes that the injury is a legitimate one, with the call for Joe to relinquish his title being made by WWE’s medical staff. The decision was in no way a creative decision, and tonight’s scheduled Fatal-4-Way match for the NXT Championship is just WWE’s way of rolling with the punches.

Samoa Joe’s injury is not expected to be a long-term one. Instead, Joe is expected to return in the near future, but a return date has not been decided or planned.
