[10.0] "In his prime, he was the guy. Along with Punk, made ROH a better known promotion. He never cuts below-average promos, he always works his ass off in the ring and is very agile for his size. If he doesn't win a World/Universal title on the main roster, the creative should really electrocute themselves."
Strezemann wrote on 10.08.2016:
[9.0] "Joe's career looked to be on the downslope for a while there, going from one of the best in the business to someone who'd clearly lost their way. Ever since coming to NXT, however, he's seemed invigorated, turning in consistently good in-ring performances and really delivering the goods in promos. In general, at least on the indies and in NXT (I don't remember him turning in anything stellar in TNA), Joe's been a fairly underrated mic worker, I feel. He can deliver almost Arn Anderson-esque low-key promos that are straight to the point and believable, but he does 'seething with rage' very well, too. Somewhere around '03-'05, Joe was consistently one of the best heavyweight wrestlers on the planet, and his ROH title run alone has secured his legacy as a great performer. Add to that his successes in TNA and the new leash on life he's gotten in NXT, and you have a guy who really has nothing left to prove. One of the best big men ever, whose best matches (vs. Punk, vs. Daniels and Styles, vs. Kobashi) are among the premier outings of the new Millennium."

[10.0] "Joe moves like a cruiserweight and looks like a freakin' star. Great in ROH, great in TNA and is a lot of fun to watch in NXT at the moment, glad WWE signed him."

[9.0] "Joe is definitely one of the finest technical submission for a guy his size which you often don't see. Can wrestle properly, act as an astounding warrior and portray well as a beast."

[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."
