What’s the story?

As reported by PWInsider, it seems as if the injury that is keeping Samoa Joe out of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge is legitimate.

In case you didn’t know...

Kurt Angle announced earlier today that Joe wouldn’t be competing alongside Bayley in the MMC due to an injury he suffered on Raw. At the time, it seemed as if this was related to Joe’s current storyline, but now it seems as if that isn’t the case.

The heart of the matter

PWInsider has confirmed with their sources at WWE that this is a legitimate injury, however, the extent of the issue has yet to be revealed. Joe has only been back on WWE TV for a few months since recovering from his last injury that kept him on the sidelines.

What’s next?

Given that we’re still in the early stages of developments surrounding this story, we’ll likely have more details about Joe’s injury in the next few days.

Author’s take

If this ends up being true, it’s a huge blow for Joe considering how much of a roll he’s been on as of late. While we can only speculate as to the time frame for his potential recovery, it’d be a massive shame for Joe to miss out on competing at WrestleMania for the second year in a row.
