Samoa Joe has been off WWE TV for over two months now, dealing with a foot injury. 

It's fair to say fans have really missed "The Destroyer", who aggravated a previous foot injury during a New Year's Day Intercontinental Championship match against Roman Reigns. 

Up until January, Joe had been receiving a pretty good push on WWE's red brand. 

In 2017 he headlined the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view against Brock Lesnar and was also involved in high profile matches against Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman. 

Unfortunately, a long-term foot injury appears to have him ruled out of WrestleMania on April 8 in New Orleans. 

Joe hasn't been advertised for any events leading up to the "Show of Shows", so it's highly unlikely we'll see him back in the ring before next month. 

However, although he's been tight-lipped about a return, on a recent edition of Booker’s T’s podcast Heated Conversations, he suggested that his comeback is "a week-to-week thing".  

Understandably, that got fans pretty excited - and his latest Instagram activity will add fuel to the fire too - because he's been teasing a return. 


Joe posted a cartoon of him sitting on top a pile of bodies - presumably of other wrestlers, with the Universal Championship in hand. 

And the caption simply reads "#Soon", suggesting that he's ready to stake a claim at Raw's top title. 

Check out the Instagram post below. 

Of course, once Joe does return, he will literally have a mountain to climb to get back into the title picture. 

In his absence, a number of other top Raw stars have been impressing and are expected to be in contention ahead of Joe. 

The likes of Rollins, Strowman and Finn Balor are just a few. Then, of course, there's Reigns and Lesnar. 


Those two are fighting for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania and the winner of that match will likely be champion when Joe returns. 

So to get his hands on the title - as his Instagram post suggests, he will have to hold off perhaps the toughest competition he's ever faced. 

But if 2017 was anything to go by, there's nothing to suggest Joe won't be able to do so - and soon claim the Universal Championship for himself.
