SAMOA JOE SET TO RETURN TO WWE THIS WEEK
Samoa Joe is now eligible to return to action for WWE, due to the term of his Wellness suspension.
WWE announced back on February 25th that Joe had been suspended for 30 days due to his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy, with the suspension went into effect on Monday, February 24th. There’s no word yet on if Joe will be brought back to work this week for the WrestleMania 36 tapings, which are scheduled to run today and tomorrow in the Orlando area, but he is eligible to perform. But he will be eligible to perform going forward.
However, whilst Samoa Joe is able to return now that his suspension is over, there’s still no confirmation that he’s been medically cleared to compete. Joe suffered a reported concussion from taking a bad table dump during a WWE commercial shoot in early February, which would have been his second concussion in a month.
