Was Samoa Joe’s Injury A Storyline Decision?


Following Samoa Joe relinquishing his NXT Championship on Sunday through injury, there has been mounting speculation on the legitimacy of the aforementioned injury.

A new report from PWInsider however, has offered some clarity on various aspects regarding the injury.

The report notes that the injury is a legitimate one, with the call for Joe to relinquish his title made by WWE’s medical department. The decision was in no way a creative decision, and tonight’s scheduled Fatal-4-Way match for the NXT Championship is just WWE’s way of rolling with the punches.

Finally, the reported noted that Samoa Joe’s injury was not expected to be a long-term one. Instead Joe is expected to be fit in the near future, but a return date has not been decided or planned.
