In a statement provided to ESPN, Joe Anoa'i (aka Roman Reigns) responded to recent allegations made by Richard Rodriguez, a Miami gym owner who was arrested last February as part of a $10 million steroid production and distribution ring; in a YouTube video posted on Jan. 11, Rodriguez spoke about meeting Anoa'i and him having ties to the operation, which was called Wellness Fitness Nutrition. "I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition. I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I've passed 11 tests as part of WWE's independent drug testing program." The mistake Anoa'i referenced was a 30-day wellness suspension from the WWE in June 2016.

After one of his most fiery promos to date and a wave of momentum heading into the Royal Rumble, Samoa Joe suffered a foot injury on Raw that may once again temporarily derail a big push forward. During his match, [Samoa Joe] felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot," explained WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann. "We took a look and believe he has a plantar fascia rupture, which is a thick tissue rupture under the foot. We will get an MRI to confirm. Treatment includes a period of immobilization in a boot with crutches and platelet rich plasma injections." He's already been pulled from the Mixed Match Challenge, pending an MRI, and a timetable and his status for the Royal Rumble is currently unknown.

Wrestle Kingdom 12

Recap

Wrestle Kindgom 12

Jericho vs. Omega

From top to bottom, New Japan Pro Wrestling's annual Wrestle Kingdom show once again set a lofty bar for the rest of the year to follow. From Kazuchika Okada's continued dominance and unexpected successful IWGP heavyweight title defense, to Alpha vs. Omega, which had fans at the Tokyo Dome losing their minds up until the moment Kenny Omega hit a one-winged angel on Chris Jericho onto a steel chair to win that match, Jan. 4 was a banner day. Hiroshi Tanehashi successfully defended his Intercontinental championship against Jay White, making it a clean sweep for the champs in the final three matches, but the opposite was true early in the card as the other five title matches saw challengers walk away with new titles.
