[10.0] "How can I give this man any less. So many brilliant matches, 3 classics with CM Punk, vs. Kenta Kobashi and not to mentioned the dozens of great matches between him and the likes of AJ Styles, Low Ki, Christopher Daniels, Bryan Danielson and Kurt Angle as well as more throughout his career. A great talent. 10/10."

[10.0] "Samoa Joe is in my mind, one of the greatest wrestling talents of all-time. In his prime he was arguably the best wrestler in the world, and definitely one of the best. His matches vs. CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, AJ Styles & Kenta Kobashi are stuff of legends. Big fan of the Samoan Submission Machine."

[9.0] "What can you say about Samoa Joe? Certainly one of the best in the world at one point, though in the last several years he's been much less exciting. Perhaps a change of scenery will give him the kick in the backside he needs, because a hot Joe can be a truly amazing thing to watch."
Maryan wrote on 04.03.2015:
[8.0] "Joe's one hell of a talent. Too bad TNA hasn't used him right in the past few years but now he is back in ROH. And if the WWE rumors turn out to be legit, then I wish the Samoan Submission Machine all the best!"
Le Wrestling Fan wrote on 26.02.2015:
[10.0] "You don't see big man and awesome in one sentence very often. Samoa Joe is an awesome big man. He has be great throughout his career and he can easily be called the best Samoan wrestler in history, hands down."

[10.0] "A dominant force in pro wrestling over the last 15 years. The longest reign with the ROH World Championship in their history. Held every belt in TNA, some on multiple occasions. His track record speaks for itself."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 12.12.2014:
[8.0] "Samoa Joe was one of the wrestlers ROH build themselves around during the company's formation. He managed to parlay his ROH success into a solid career with TNA, where he's earned all of the Men's titles (though has been more prolific as an X-Division Champion. Will he be a prominent part of TNA's attempt to gain relevance on Destination America?"

[8.0] "Great worker, but is now well past his prime and really isn't able to portray a "wrestling" character other than tough, silent dude."
HongKongPhooey wrote on 22.02.2014:
[9.0] "The true pearl of the TNA roster. Ever since his stand out run in Ring of Honor, Samoa Joe has been an incredible competitor inside the ring. Joe's in ring skills can stand toe to toe with anyone in the world wrestling today and is someone who should be considered one of best of this era."
