Samoa Joe Reportedly Suffers Injury

According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Samoa Joe is out with another injury.

Samoa Joe is not cleared to wrestle after suffering an injury while filming a commercial. The injury reportedly took place at a WWE commercial shoot last week when Joe hit his head during a bad table break as they were filming a stunt. While it’s unconfirmed at this point, Joe could be out of action for a considerable amount of time.

Joe returned from a broken thumb at the end of last year. Upon his return, he joined Kevin Owens and the Viking Raiders in their feud against Seth Rollins and his disciples, but suffered a concussion last month which briefly took him out of action. He then wrestled last week on Raw, but was once again absent on Monday.

We wish Joe a quick recovery from his latest injury.


S.A.M.’s Spiel: It seems like Joe cannot escape the injury bug at this point in his career. Joe was stellar on commentary and I wonder if he should transition into more of a part-time role and be more of a fixture on commentary. It would be disappointing if Joe never got to hold a world title in WWE but if he cannot stay healthy, I can understand why WWE will not pull the trigger on it. I hope the injury does not cost him a chance to participate at Wrestlemania.
