Welcome to today's edition of the WWE Rumor Roundup, where we try and bring you the best stories of the day. We have news about what Chris Benoit told his final opponent to do in the ring, and also Dominik talking about facing his father Rey Mysterio one day.

Before we get to all that, let us get past the two headline-makers of the day:

Samoa Joe comments on his WWE in-ring future 

Samoa Joe has been a commentator on Monday Night RAW for some time now and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. The former NXT champion has not wrestled in the ring since February because of various reasons. 

One important reason was his concussion, and the repeated impact it had on his career recently saw doubts raised over his WWE in-ring future. Joe, however, has not ruled out a return to the ring and said that he is far done with in-ring action.

He talked on the Taylor Wilde's podcast, 'Wilde On' when he spoke about his experiences as a commentator. He said:  

"Right now, I'm enjoying commentary on Raw. It's been a fun challenge. Obviously, I'm not done in the ring by no means. I think right now; I'm exploring things. Aside from that, I'm doing voice acting, which is fun and very cool. It's a very enjoyable thing. I have a project coming up with Warner Brothers. I'm very fortunate, and I'm very happy that I'm doing the things I'm doing right now."

Dave Meltzer also spoke about Samoa Joe's WWE future in the recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio and said that he is expected to be back in the ring soon. He said:

"Probably not, but for now, he does such a great job with announcing, and he's had a lot of concussions, but for now, he's doing this. I know that when he first did the announcing, and of course, things changed, I was told that it was temporary because he's too valuable as a talent to have him as an announcer. But obviously, minds changed from when I was told that to when they decided to revamp it, and he is great as an announcer. In theory, he's supposed to wrestle again, but who knows."

Samoa Joe is easily one of the best in-ring performers in WWE, and a return to the ring is something the WWE Universe is eagerly waiting to see.
