INJURY TO TOP STAR CHANGES RAW PLANS

By Mike Johnson on 2017-08-29 00:52:00

As PWInsider.com reported earlier today, the plans for Raw originally iincluded Samoa Joe vs. John Cena.  Obviously, that match did not happen.  

The word backstage is that Joe suffered some sort of knee injury at the house show loop over the weekend at the live event in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where he lost to Cena.  Joe did not work last night's live event in Tupelo, MS as originally scheduled.  The belief among those we've spoken to is the injury could keep Joe out for at least four weeks.    WWE has not officially acknowledged the injury as of this writing.

Also of note is that Enzo Amore was originally slated for the Battle Royal tonight but was pulled out of it over the course of the day.
