Samoa Joe shot down rumors that he is dealing with an injury to his elbow.
“Rumors of a elbow injury are false. WWE has trainers who in turn have tape. It’s a free resource I enjoy using preventively,” he wrote on Twitter.

As you can see in this photo from Saturday’s NXT live event in Louisville, Kentucky, his elbow was heavily taped.

The injury rumor he refuted started with an offhand comment on Wrestling Observer Radio, where Dave Meltzer speculated the reason behind this weekend’s house show multi-person matches where Joe barely got physical was a problem with his elbow.
