Samoa Joe injured, out of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge tournament


WWE.COM is reporting that Samoa Joe has suffered another injury to his right foot last night on Raw and is not cleared to compete next week as part of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge show on Facebook.

“During his match, [Samoa Joe] felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot,” said 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.”

During the show, Joe announced his intentions to enter the Royal Rumble match although that is also a question mark now and it all depends how quickly he can heal from this fresh injury.

Joe was voted by fans to be Bayley’s partner in the Mixed Match Challenge but with his injury, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle said that runner-up Elias will be taking his place as Bayley’s partner.
