Samoa Joe has been out of action since September due to a broken thumb. This is a very inconvenient injury that is keeping him out of the ring, but Samoa Joe still showed up on WWE Backstage.
During WWE Backstage last night, Samoa Joe revealed that his recovery is going day-by-day, but it is going well. He hopes to be back in action in a few weeks.
As we previously reported, Samoa Joe is listed for a December return on WWE’s injury sheet. It’s not set in stone that he will come back as soon as he’s ready. After all, WWE will need to write him into the storyline.
Samoa Joe could very well sit out until the Royal Rumble in January. WWE likes to bring Superstars back for that event. Hopefully they will have a plan for him as well.
