Update on Samoa Joe WWE Status, Eric Young Reacts To WWE Release

Update on Samoa Joe WWE Status, Eric Young Reacts To WWE Release
- Eric Young, who was one of the WWE stars that were released, went on social media tonight to thank fans for the support.


He also wrote on Twitter about how he was excited about the possibilities, choices, and how he was excited to right others wrongs. After his 12-year run in Impact Wrestling, Eric signed with WWE in 2016.

Eric posted, "Thanks for all the kind words, everyone! It's hard to explain what they mean to me so I won't even try. Know it is appreciated more than you could ever know! EXCITED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES! EXCITED ABOUT MY CHOICES! EXCITED TO RIGHT OTHERS WRONGS!"

- Samoa Joe has not returned to WWE RAW action because he's still not medically cleared to compete.

Joe's 30-day WWE Wellness Policy suspension expired in time for the WrestleMania 36 tapings but Joe still has not been cleared from his most recent concussion, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

As noted, Joe suffered a concussion during the shoot for WWE's "RAW: Must Be Monday" commercial, seen above. The injury came when he took the table spot from The Authors of Pain. The concussion from this commercial shoot was his second concussion in less than 1 month.

Joe suffered a broken thumb back in September and didn't return to the ring on RAW until late December. He then suffered a concussion while doing a dive on the January 27 RAW episode, returned to action for one week, and then suffered the second concussion at the commercial shoot in early February. He then tested positive to violate the WWE Wellness Policy.

There's no word yet on a timetable for when Joe will be cleared for RAW action, but we will keep you updated.
