[10.0] "Samoa Joe is not just your regular big, fat, and bulky dude, though he is not really fat. You can hardly find a man of his size being agile. But what's awesome is his technical skill in the ring which grants him the name: Samoan Submission Machine. Not only Joe puts a sbmission on his opponent like a submission machine, this guy also fights like a warrior, wrestles like a wrestler, and acts like a beast. His matches are awesome no matter what promotions he is in. Him vs Kobashi is one of his best matches, if not the best, which proves his capability against one of the best international Pro Wrestlers. I kinda want to see this guy vs Brock Lesnar, especially after seeing him vs Kurt Angle, him vs Vader, and more of him vs Kevin Owens. I truly hope WWE would not misuse him, since his NXT career is quite awesome."

[10.0] "Joe is one of the best wrestlers in the world. His matches are really good. And for a big man, he can really move. His moveset is really good and the fact that he is a really good submission specialist is just a bonus."

[10.0] "When people ask me why I love Joe, I have always the same answer: "Versatility". No matter good or bad, he always wins back his role at the highest level. He can make you laugh (which is only a segment with a coffin in the TNA), it may be feared, it can not be allocated, if it does not it needs, it simply can do everything. He is not a god of the microphone, but good enough. We can always understand his attitude, learn from the very first words of what he wants, but it can be unpredictable. Calling it a better speaker? No. To ascribe to the best? Definitely. And his manner of conducting divine battle. He fights mostly at a slow pace. But due to his charisma, it is rather a plus than a minus. Because in this case, it can show a match with any wrestler, with fast, nimble, even with the bag as Baron Corbin he gave a good fight, considering all the mediocrity of the Wolf. And all the matches that were rated 5 stars - not too different speeds. Samoa Joe - a vivid example of the fact that even at a slow pace, you can make a masterpiece. A conditional Kalisto shows a high rate, but watch his matches simply not interested. Failing that, I mean, Joe - a living legend. Legend, which can delight us for at least another 10 years. I hope that in his new home in the WWE, he will find himself and become a star of the top-level. He certainly deserves it."

[9.0] "Samoa Joe is an utterly unique version of the monster brawler, blending his strength and ferocity with one of the best technical wrestling repertoires in the world. He's equally fantastic in three-minute squash matches and hour-long iron man contests, which very few wrestlers can say. For years, he's been one of the best-regarded wrestlers outside of the WWE, and his matches with Kenta Kobashi, CM Punk and Kurt Angle should be required viewing. TNA earned the only legitimacy it ever had on Samoa Joe's back, and he was a highlight of both that company and Ring of Honor during his time there. Now, Joe's made his way to NXT at long last, and he's still putting on excellent matches even if he's a little slower and less fit than he used to be. Even so, a slightly-weathered Joe puts on better matches than most WWE stars in their prime. Here's hoping he gets a good main roster run sometime soon, even if he doesn't plan on sticking around too long."

[10.0] "Samoa Joe is one of the G. O. A. T, since his early years in the business he showed his talent, and his incredible ring ability + he had memorable matches against the likes of Kobashi, Punk, Aries, Danielson, Angle ... and now he is the best champ. Vince's company have right now."

[9.0] "Joe is one of the best brawlers in Wrestling today. His excellent mobility combined with his intensity puts him in a brawler class with Lesnar."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 15.05.2016:
[8.0] "Samoa Joe may never get that main level run, but he's established a career that's made him the de facto king of secondary promotions such as ROH, TNA, and NXT. After training to become a wrestler in Orange County, California, Joe broke out in the California indies with such aplomb that he was soon making appearances for Shinya Hashimoto's Zero-1 (where he earned the NWA Intercontinential Tag Team Championship) as well as preliminary appearances with the WWE. Yet it would be with ROH where Joe would establish himself as a credible main eventer and ROH World Champion. Seeking a larger platform to appear on, Joe took his talents to TNA full time and found himself a perennial contender for all of their titles (and has enjoyed reigns with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship while becoming synonymous with the TNA X-Division Championship during his tenure with the company. ) Following a brief excursion to ROH, Joe joined on as a member of NXT, where he soon earned the NXT Championship while playing a starring role for the brand. It may be too late in his career to have a top-flight run with the WWE's main roster, but the career Joe has carved out is one lesser wrestlers would dream to have."

[9.0] "Samoa Joe is the man. From 2004 to 2007 the man was without a doubt one of the best pro wrestlers on the planet. His ROH World Title reign is legendary; and for a good reason. Some of his title defenses were just SO good. And he has been a part of some of the best matches in TNA history, too. Since arriving in WWE, he has been totally killing it, too. Brought out the best in Finn Bálor. Samoa Joe rules."

[9.0] "A legit ass kicker. Joe is the prefect combination of brawling while having a technical side to him. Watching is just fun. The guy is a beast and he legit kicks people's ass in the ring. Had one of my favorite matches ever with Punk (Joe vs Punk II)"
ShooterMcShoot wrote on 25.12.2015:
[10.0] "Why Samoa Joe isn't on the main roster being pushed as the world champion is a mystery to me. Well, not really a mystery. But McMahon's logic is ridiculous nonetheless."
