Samoa Joe hasn’t wrestled on WWE TV since September 9 in the King of the Ring semi-final three-way that also included Ricochet and was won by tournament winner King Corbin.
In an update to Joe’s conditions, PWInsider is reporting that Joe suffered a broken thumb while performing and isn’t yet cleared to return to action.
At this moment in time, the timetable for Joe’s recovery is not known.
In a recent interview with Fightful, Samoa Joe spoke about how despite wrestlers always backing him, Vince McMahon was very much against bringing him in to WWE:
“Oh, there were tons here for years. Years. Vince vehemently opposed me being in WWE. He didn’t know me, wasn’t familiar with me. And now we have a great relationship, everything’s working fine. I think he just realize he already bought it, so he might as well use it. No, like I said, with every partner I’ve ever worked with it’s about time and understanding. And we’ve had some time and we’ve had some understanding. It’s working out pretty well,” Joe continued.
