WWE Superstar and commentator, Samoa Joe, has donated his hair to charity.
In an Instagram post on January 17, the former NXT Champion and ‘Submission Machine’ posted a picture of his long locks which he’d sheered off in support of Children With Hair Loss (CWHL). Since stepping away from the squared circle, Joe had been growing his hair for quite some time.
Alongside the photo, the star posted the caption:
“It was a good run, hopefully it will find a better purpose at @cwhl_org . #cutpasslove”
CWHL is a non-profit charity that provides human hair at zero cost to children and young adults who face medical-related hair loss due to illnesses such as cancer or cancer treatment.
Samoa Joe has not competed in a WWE ring since February 10, 2020, when he teamed with Kevin Owens and The Viking Raiders to battle Seth Rollins, Buddy Murphy and The Authors of Pain on Monday Night Raw.
Following that bout, Joe suffered a severe head trauma while shooting a commercial and though he went through various tests to detect concussion and any lingering side-effects, WWE’s medical team refused to clear him to return to active competition.
Subsequent to a thirty day suspension for violating WWE’s Wellness Policy, the talent returned to the company in a commentary role on the red brand, the role he’s served in ever since.
