Another Notable Name Scheduled to Appear at WWE Raw 25 *Spoiler*

Another Notable Name Scheduled to Appear at WWE Raw 25 *Spoiler*

Will he be cleared for the Royal Rumble match?

Samoa Joe suffered a foot injury on Monday Night Raw that will prevent him from partnering with Bayley in the WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

WWE Monday Night Raw will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in a few weeks with a huge broadcast that's set to take place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and the Manhattan Center. He also stated he would be eliminating John Cena from the match first, sparking a potential future feud between them.

As a result, Elias, who received the second highest number of votes, will officially team with Raw's favorite hugger to represent Team Red in the WWE Mixed Match Challenge tournament, airing exclusively on Facebook Watch beginning next Tuesday, Jan. 16.

The report from WWE revealed that the Samoan Submission Machine suffered an injury to his right foot during his match with Rhyno on Monday Night Raw. "Treatment includes a period of immobilization in a boot with crutches and platelet rich plasma injections".

The recovery time for a usual plantar fascia rupture would be about two weeks with therapy, so Joe is still likely to compete at the Royal Rumble on January 28 unless the MRI reveals more extensive damage. If WWE wants Joe to fully recover, it means he could be out of action until early March, which means he would miss the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

It was only previous year that The Samoan Submission Specialist missed a couple of months due to a knee injury he picked up at a house show in August.

Known as one of the most vicious stars on the roster, Joe confirmed on Raw that he would be among the 30 participants fighting it out to land a title shot at the Rumble.

Hopefully, the Samoan Submission Machine is ready to go for his Royal Rumble debut.
