Before Samoa Joe suffered his foot injury, there were plans in place for him to do an angle with John Cena at the upcoming Royal Rumble event. With Joe unable to appear on the show, it appears that the spot will now be given to Elias instead and he will do whatever spot that Joe was originally supposed to do with Cena at the pay-per-view event.

As previously reported, Joe’s return has been pushed back and he’s not expected back until the end of March. With Cena rumored to be facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania this year, it’s possible the plans that WWE had for Joe and Cena will be completely scrapped.
