[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."

[10.0] "Another great wrestler. Pure in the ring. Puts on outstanding matches. Good mic skills. I love this man to pieces. This man is the best brawler ever. His mat work is superb. He is athletic for a man his size. He is an excellent worker. He is a good talker."

[10.0] "Samoa Joe has always been one of my most favorite wrestlers on the TNA roster! What can I say that hasn't been said already about this guy? I really love watching Joe wrestle! For a guy his size he can do things in the ring that a lot of other guys his size can't do and of course he's always had the ability to put on amazing matches with other awesome workers as well! I've always loved Joe's character on TV too. He has such an intimidating presence every time he shows up on TNA television and he can cut a serious, believable promo with the best of them and can add some humor to his mic work too if necessary. Joe has always been one of the top TNA guys you think of who everyone wants to see in WWE someday and you always wonder whether or not he'll go to WWE eventually. I would love to see him in WWE just like everybody else would, but at the same time, at this point for me, I'm perfectly happy that he's still with TNA cause at least he's still on global television wrestling the kind of matches he loves to wrestle in. However considering how much of a world champion caliber talent Joe really is, how he hasn't received multiple title world title reigns in TNA is just mind-boggling to me."

[10.0] "It's the Samoan Submission Machine, of course he's going to be a 10! Samoa Joe is one of TNA's greatest wrestlers. He can play any role to its best and then some. Though I'd like to see him as the world champ again, it's always a treat to watch him in action."

[10.0] "Samoa Joe used to be the most dangerous man in pro wrestling, while those days have passed he is still better than 95% of the guys in the back of any company. His strikes are the best in the business and his submissions skills are still rock solid, while he doesn't fly well anymore he is still very quick on his feet for a guy his size and is still only 34."

[9.0] "This guy is just amazing. Quite agile for his size, and a heck of an in-ring worker. It's too bad TNA dropped the ball on him numerous times."

[10.0] "Starting to get back in shape and although he hasn't been in high profile singles matches lately, his popularity continues to grow as a fantastic wrestler!"
Leone wrote on 22.03.2013:
[10.0] "In TNA, he's great, particularly with his matches against the likes of Kurt Angle, AJ Styles and Chris Daniels. In ROH, he's a legend. The longest reigning ROH world heavyweight champion in history, and one of the best strong style wrestlers in North America. While looks can be deceiving, Joe has a combination of strength and agility that not only is surprising from a 280lb wrestler, but also plays a big role to his hard-hitting style. His matches against CM Punk are amazing. His match against Kenta Kobashi was not only 1 of the best matches ever, but it had 1 of the best crowds as well. On top of this, Joe has a natural charisma and good mic skills that you don't always see, and he knows a lot more wrestling styles than many wrestlers of similar builds. One of the greats."
