News Samoa Joe leaves TNA

  1. :ambrose:
    He had a great run. Hope he has a run in WWE or in Japan.
     
  2. And the newest member of the Bullet Club... Samoa Joe!

    Seriously, though. Best of luck in your future endeavours, Joe. I'll be looking forward to seeing Joe whether it's in ROH, NJPW or perhaps WWE.

  3. If Joe joins the Bullet Club I'll slam my head into my desk. That stable doesn't have any more room.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  4. Agreed.

    I was joking, though. How much do they have now, like 18? lol
     
  5. 6 years too late, Job.
     
  6. Who does that leave as a long-term mainstay? Aries, Roode, Storm, and maybe Angle? Kinda depressing knowing that the golden era of TNA is pretty much gone for the most part. Best of luck to Joe though, hoping he'll follow the routes of the other departures and tear it up in ROH again. He'd be wasted in the WWE for the most part.

  7. Storm is like the only original left I think (could be wrong). He was on the first show. Roode showed up a while later.
     
  8. Storm is the final franchise of TNA. He's been there since the PPVs were in single digits. Roode showed up in 2004, Aries was there during TNA's PPV times but he was just an X-Division attraction, he signed in 2011. TNA has lost a lot of home grown talent in the last 2-3 years.

    EDIT: After some research, Aries wasn't there during TNA's PPV times. He was there after iMPACT started around 2006.
     
  9. I like Samoa Joe a lot, not surprised with that move.. it's probably best for both parties; financially for TNA & hopefully doing well career wise for Joe seeing as TNA was no longer really doing him any favors.
     
  10. I think the best thing for him now would be to become a WWE trainer or maybe even New Japan. He's too fat compared to a decade ago. :steiner:
     
  11. They have signed some younger guys to contracts longer also. YOU FORGOT EY!

    I'm glad Joe is gone, he can do better elsewhere, and hasn't been shit in nearly 3 years i've watched TNA.
     
  12. I don't really care, honestly. The only thing I hope will come because of this is TNA taking a shot at Joe by signing a new Knockout with the name of Samoa Hoe
     
  13. That kinda sucks, he was in my first ever TNA match (Aries vs Joe, Slammiversary 2012) and as a TNA guy and one of my favourite wrestlers, to see him leave like this is sad. I wonder if they'll wrap up his storyline on Impact, so he can leave the BDC. I'd love it if he got a send off match vs Angle or Magnus, perhaps. I hope he comes back one day though, same with AJ Styles and Bad Influence.
     
  14. Should have left a while ago. I'll enjoy seeing him vs Briscoe
     
  15. Damn, that sucks, never been a big fan but I knew he carried the company for a good point in his run.
     
  16. I think he could come into NXT, do some epic work there, then hit the main roster. However, the only thing working against him here is that he's 35. So what that means is all of it would have to happen pretty quickly. Working against the clock and WWE's attitude of growing their own talent at the Performance Center may hinder it or keep it from happening all together.
     
  17. There was a "golden age" in TNA wrestling?????
