WWE NXT Superstar Samoa Joe recently had to confirm that he was relinquishing the NXT Championship due to injury. The three-time NXT title holder noted on a social media video that he would have to give up the belt as he was not cleared by WWE officials.
Tommaso Ciampa would win the NXT Championship on this week’s episode of the programme, which was dubbed NXT 2.0 as part of a rebrand for the Tuesday night show.
According to a new report from PWInsider, there is currently no timeframe on when Samoa Joe will return, but thankfully he doesn’t appear to be out of action for long.
When will Samoa Joe return to WWE?
