On Raw last night, Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens challenged Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy for the Raw Tag Team titles. During the match, Joe went for a middle rope tope on Murphy but came up short and hit his head on the floor. You can watch the nasty landing below.
Unlike with Kairi Sane at TLC, WWE’s medical staff removed Joe from the match. Owens would finish the match alone but was pinned by Murphy, who held the tights for the win.
We can now confirm that Joe has undergone WWE’s concussion testing protocol and sadly did suffer a concussion. This could result in weeks to months away from the ring, and the timing is terrible because Joe was just picking up momentum after missing several months with a broken thumb.
