After one of his most fiery promos to date and a wave of momentum heading into the Royal Rumble, Samoa Joe suffered a foot injury on Raw that may once again temporarily derail a big push forward. During his match, [Samoa Joe] felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot," explained WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann. "We took a look and believe he has a plantar fascia rupture, which is a thick tissue rupture under the foot. We will get an MRI to confirm. Treatment includes a period of immobilization in a boot with crutches and platelet rich plasma injections." He's already been pulled from the Mixed Match Challenge, pending an MRI, and a timetable and his status for the Royal Rumble is currently unknown.
