Speaking of injuries, Samoa Joe has been out of action for a very long time now. He’s been a welcome addition to Monday Night RAW’s color commentary, but fans would love to see him back in the ring.

Will he ever return to the squared circle?

Information On Samoa Joe’s Return

Samoa Joe suffered from a concussion that has taken him out of in-ring action for over one year now. Rick Ucchino of SK Wrestling recently had a chat with Joe about his possible return.

According to the WWE superstar, the WWE medical team is doing the best they can for his well-being and health. This means that he’s staying out of the squared circle for now, and they are taking their time. With that said, this doesn’t mean he’ll never return to action.

He added that the pandemic has “held up” a return, due to medical personnel availability. Joe noted that a careful and “measured” approach is being taken when it comes to his return to the ring.

Is Joe’s In-Ring Career Over?

During the interview, Samo Joe made it very clear that he does not think his in-ring wrestling career is over, not“by a longshot” as he put it.

Joe revealed that he’s appreciative of this recovery time. He also was clear that his health has been respected at a “premium” by WWE medical, throughout this process.

There’s a good chance that Samoa Joe will wrestle again. It sounds as if he and the WWE are taking their time to ensure that he is in tip-top shape and fully recovered before he steps through those ring ropes.

Concussions can be a tricky thing to recover from, so it’s clear the WWE is not taking any chances.

Joe suffered from this injury on February 20, 2020, while hitting his head during a film shoot for a commercial. Four days later he would be suspended by the company for 30 days after violating their Wellness Policy.

Joe returned to Monday Night RAW on April 27th last year, once again joining the commentary table and replacing Jerry Lawler.
