Shinsuke Nakamura Working Injured
It's being reported that while NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura has been appearing at NXT Live Events, he has been working matches while injured. Although he is cleared to compete, it has been noticed that Nakamura has been keeping his moveset to a minimum in an attempt not to further aggravate his injury.
Samoa Joe is also currently sidelined with an injury, with WWE officials announcing at Live Events that he hasn't been cleared to compete. No word as of yet on what injuries both men have suffered, nor is there a scheduled return date known for Samoa Joe.
Update on Mick Foley's WWE Status
Mick Foley is set to undergone hip replacement surgery, which is why he has suddenly decided to take the rest of the year off. However, it is not expected that Foley could miss the majority of the first quarter of 2017.
It's being said that the only reason Foley worked last weeks Raw was to give Sami Zayn's match at Roadblock a rub. WWE had reported that Foley would return on the January 2 episode of Raw, but considering how his surgery goes, his absence may prove to be longer.
