Monday Night Raw star Samoa Joe is out for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge show due to a foot injury.
WWE Raw superstar Samoa Joe has been ruled out of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge series due to a foot injury suffered Monday night in his match with Rhyno.
Samoa Joe won the fan vote to team with Bayley, but will now be replaced by runner up Elias Samson.
“During his match, [Samoa Joe] felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot,” explained WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann. “We took a look and believe he has a plantar fascia rupture, which is a thick tissue rupture under the foot. We will get an MRI to confirm. Treatment includes a period of immobilization in a boot with crutches and platelet rich plasma injections.”
It is unknown how long Samoa Joe will be out for as of press time, but this is definitely not the time any WWE superstar wants to miss, with Royal Rumble and WrestleMania right around the corner.
