Another Update on Samoe Joe's Injury & Possibility of Him Missing Royal Rumble

— According to the Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, there is still no word on how long Samoa Joe will be sidelined as a result of his foot injury. With Joe and John Cena booked into matches after Royal Rumble, Meltzer speculated that at the Royal Rumble there was likely going to be a quick angle during the match to have them engage and set up their future matches.

— With Joe possibly missing the Rumble, this angle could now happen on a Raw after Royal Rumble or if Joe is out for longer than expected, it might be someone like The Miz who will instead step in and fill Joe’s role at house shows and on TV.
