- According to HeelByNature.com, an internal injury report lists Samoa Joe’s return date as December 15th which is the same day as the TLC PPV. This does not necessarily mean that Joe, who suffered a broken thumb, will be ready in time for the event. Joe was injured in early September and BetterBraces.com noted the following about recovery time from a fracture:
"Often times you will be in a cast or splint for 2-6 weeks and be in physical therapy for a few weeks to months before you gain full mobility."
Joe has continued to make appearances for WWE during his recovery.
- Fightful.com noted the following regarding the Lars Sullivan's knee injury:
"We’re told that his knee injury recovery is progressing slowly, even slower than some he’s experienced in the past."
