[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."
TrevPuroFan wrote on 21.12.2015:
[10.0] "Samoa Joe is one of the best fat guy wrestlers ever and my personal favorite samoan wrestler of all time. This guy had so many classics vs the likes of AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Kenta Kobashi, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson etc. And he has basically won every World Title in the main companies he has been. Lets hope he wins the WWE strap soon. Joe is amazing. 10/10"
Dowkesy wrote on 09.10.2015:
[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."
ShawnDraven wrote on 10.06.2015:
[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."
kfordesque wrote on 09.04.2015:
[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."
