So there is a reason for Samoa Joe's recent WWE hiatus after all.
According to PW Insider, the WWE Superstar is dealing with a broken thumb, which is why he has been absent from weekly television and pay per views.
Reports do not indicate exactly when the former WWE United States Champion suffered the injury, and there is no clear timetable regarding his return.
Samoa Joe last appeared on the September 9th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw.
