Samoa Joe suffers concussion during WWE commercial shoot


Samoa Joe is injured again, suffering his second concussion in roughly four weeks during a WWE commercial shoot last week.

The news was first reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet and later confirmed by our Dave Meltzer.

PWS reported that Joe hit his head on a table break spot while filming the commercial. His timetable to return is unknown, but this would be his second head injury in a short period of time as he suffered a concussion on a dive during a tag team match on the January 27th edition of Raw.

The 40-year-old has had a tough run of injuries over the fall and winter, suffering a broken thumb in September that put him on the shelf (and on commentary) until late-December.

In recent weeks, Joe has been involved in an angle with Kevin Owens and the Viking Raiders against Seth Rollins, Murphy, and the AOP.  He last wrestled on the February 10th edition of Raw in a six-man tag match.
