As noted earlier, Ryan Satin revealed on last night’s WWE Backstage episode that Samoa Joe will remain on the RAW commentary team with Vic Joseph and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler until he is cleared to return to the ring. Dio Maddin has been off TV since the attack from WWE Champion Brock Lesnar last month. Satin noted that Maddin hasn’t returned yet because he still has aspirations of becoming a WWE Superstar and is returning to in-ring training at the WWE Performance Center.
Maddin took to Twitter after the announcement and said since Matt Riddle has moved on from talking about retiring Lesnar to retiring WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg, he will take The Beast.
“Matt Riddle moved on to Goldberg so I’ll retire Brock,” Maddin wrote.
Stay tuned for updates on Maddin’s status. You can see his tweet below:
