Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer confirmed the injury today.

One segment was Show addressing the ‘Please retire!’ chants from fans at events. Show gives the perfect answer in the video below.
Glenn’s Take: If you yell ‘Please retire!’ at the Big Show, you are obviously not a wrestling fan.
Samoa Joe Could Be Called Up To Main Roster Soon? – Wrestling Observer
A lot is riding on the outcome of Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor during WrestleMania weekend. If Joe doesn’t win the NXT Championship, that could mean a callup to the main roster for the former TNA Champion. But if he does win, look for Joe to remain at NXT until at least the fall or winter.
Glenn’s Take: Joe deserves a legit push on the main roster. Bringing him up just to do it would be bad for both parties. Patience, fans.
