It’s been a while since we last saw Samoa Joe, who has been out of action dealing with a thumb injury. He was a guest host on WWE Backstage this week, however, and Renee Young asked for an update on said injury:

“The status update is we’re kind of taking it day-by-day but recovery is going well. Hopefully a few more weeks and we’re back and rolling.”
That would put him on track to return just after Survivor Series and right on time for WrestleMania season.
