Samoa Joe Provides Health Update Following ROH Return WWE

Samoa Joe has discussed his wrestling future, following his surprise appearance at Saturday’s ROH Supercard of Honor event.

The former WWE star made his ROH return at the end of the show, saving Jonathan Gresham and Lee Moriarty from Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt. Tony Khan quickly confirmed that Joe is All Elite, and will appear on Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite.

During the post-show media scrum, Joe confirmed that he’s ready to return to the ring, following his multiple absences from WWE TV during his final years with the company.

Joe said:

“More than confident. You have to understand, coming into WWE, that is me coming off a 15-year-plus career of probably the worst medical care a guy can get and going into a very very arduous schedule. I did have a few injuries, one of them being the major concussion that took me out for a while.

“Honestly, I took extra time. When it comes to brain injuries and stuff like that, I wasn’t willing to risk going back quickly and potentially harming myself permanently. It’s just a dumb thing to do. We have too much science on our side and too much knowledge now that we can pull back and treat things properly and take time to heal.

“I took the time to do that and that was really my major issue, I was taking the right amount of time to make sure I was ready to come back to the ring. As for my last injury, obviously, it was more a circumstance of the world we all live in now and it pops up here and there. I’ve been healthy, I’m more than ready to go, and I’m excited.”

Joe also. revealed his goals for his AEW and ROH runs, which you can read more about right here.
