[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] "Probably every bit as important to the history of TNA as AJ Styles is. I don't see him hanging around NXT for long before he gets called up to the main roster."

[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."
JustinJDMarineau wrote on 02.01.2014:
[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."
