WWE Injury Updates: Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, Jason Jordan
Samoa Joe, who has been out with a plantar fascia rupture in his right foot, will not be cleared in time for the Royal Rumble, according to PWInsider.
WWE had reportedly planned a feud between him and John Cena.
There’s still no timetable for his return, but he said a few days ago that it’s a “week to week thing.”
Kevin Owens has missed the last week or so with what appears to be an ongoing back injury issue, PWInsider says.
However, he is expected back by the Royal Rumble, where he and Sami Zayn will be taking on AJ Styles in a handicap match.
Jason Jordan has also been out of action for the past 2 weeks with an undisclosed injury.
He is at Raw tonight, though and was involved in a non-wrestling role last week, so it appears (just speculating) that WWE doesn’t expect him to miss an extended period of time.
