Samoa Joe has been out of action with a minor injury, but he is said to be on the mend and ready to return very soon. Samoa Joe was involved in a rivlary with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship before he suffered the injury. The Wrestling Observer Radio speculated on Samoa Joe's next feud when he returns.

Another option being discussed is for Joe to fight Finn Balor, rekindling their feud in NXT. Joe is rumored to be returning at the end of the month.
Some matches are taped during live events or on the dark main events for some shows, but they rarely ever see the light of day on television. Back on September 26th, 2011, this proved to be the case when WWE held a surpise Hell in a Cell match. The match was a Fatal 5-Way match contested in the structure, and it featured CM Punk, John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, and Alberto Del Rio all fighting each other in the match. The match was kept very short, in fact, it lasted less than five minutes. WWE just uploaded footage of the match onto their YouTube channel right before they began broadcasting their Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Sunday night.
Brian Knobbs achieved tag team greatness back in the day as part of The Nasty Boys tag team alongside Jerry Sags. Unfortunately, the former WWF Tag Team a champion has fallen into poor health recently. Luckily, he appears to be doing much better now. Former WWF Superstar Gangrel recently appeared on Hannibal TV for an interview, and he was asked about Ric Flair's recent health scare. His response on the subject prompted him to reveal that Knobbs has also been dealing with some life-threatening health effects as of late. He also stated that Knobbs has been losing a ton of weight lately and he is doing much better in his life now.
