[size=x-large]From The Isle Of Samoa ..The Samoan Submission Machine.....Samoa Joe[/size] In this thread I'll chronicle the rise of one of the most talented big men workers of this generation. Running through his debut, x division title run, Main event contender and WHC. [size=x-large]Debut[/size] A pretty solid match here showing Joe as the dominant monster he is. [size=x-large] Undefeated Streak and X-Division title contention [/size] This is one of the best matches in TNA history for me. Really quality finals match from the Christopher Daniels Invitational. Three of the biggest stars of the X division clash in this classic due to the shenanigans in the previous match listed. Joe's first title match in the company. The first title win for Joe look at the brutal. This run lasted until here were Joe lost the belt due to interference after matches with Daniels at final resolution and Sabu at Lockdown. Joe losing the title. [size=x-large]Feud with Angle [/size] This recap deserves it's own section for me it's a really great feud. The story is Joe stole the NWA title belt from Jeff Jarrett after beating him in a fans lumberjack match at No surrender 2006. Joe offered to give the belt back to Jarrett or his scheduled BFG opponent Sting providing they gave him a title shot. Yeah that didn't happen but this did. Someone try and convince me Joe didn't look bad ass with blood dripping over his face rising up behind Kurt. This lead to this 4* match between the two at genesis. So we've seen he can wrestle a good game but how about the promos? Scott Hall no showed a TNA event and Joe was given an open mic. I'd advise fans of the bad guy to avoid this. The angle feud carried on off for the next few years. Sadly this is the beginning of the end for Joe IMO. He should have won the belt in 2006 however it took till 2008. Joe went from this to this in 2009 : Yeah it kinda screams wrestlecrap doesn't it? He managed to have a decent match with AJ at AAO 2010 but the good moments were few and far between. Now he's been in a feud with Crimson and Matt Morgan after a green hornet inspired storyline vs the pope including it's own Okato. So the question is how would Samoa Joe be fixed if you were booking TNA or would you just kick him to curb and allow his fans to just watch the past? As we've seen he can wrestle incredibly well and draw due to the Lockdown he main evented being one of the highest buy rates in TNA history.
