Highlighting Joe's Career in TNA:
To this point Joe has been with TNA since 2005 and almost instantly fans knew that Joe was going to be something special for TNA as he was booked to be undefeated from the time he debuted until the middle of 2007. Almost two year Samoa Joe competed in TNA without losing a single match, but then Joe run into a machine named Kurt Angle and Kurt became the first person to stick Joe with a loss. Most fans thought that Joe would be World Champion in TNA as soon as he reached the Main Event however in many respects TNA most likely didn't give him the Title because they didn't want his streak to over shadow the championship or vice versa. With that being said Joe eventually did win the World Title, but it wasn't until Lockdown 2008 when he fought Kurt Angle. Which by the way was the highest "rated" or most bought TNA PPV ever. That title win at Lockdown 2008 stands to this day as Joe's only reign as TNA World Champion.
Why Joe Left:
Yesterday evening Samoa Joe let all the fans know on Twitter that he had decided to part ways with TNA after 10 years with the company. First let me just say that even though for the last few years Joe had been misused by TNA that wasn't the reason why Joe left the company. Joe left because his contract expiredand because of the current financial standing of TNA they couldn't afford to pay Joe what he was making in his prior contract. The negotiating went to the wire and came to a close last night when both parities couldn't reach an agreement and decided that a mutual parting of ways would be best. This move benefits both Joe and TNA in the end, as it gives Joe a fresh start and the ability to work somewhere new for the first time in 10 years. Also it's good for TNA because this gives them the chance to be able to invest time and creatively into new faces.
Author's Note: Though this is a loss right now for TNA, I guarantee that within a few months both parties will have benefited from this decision as this move was "Best for Business."
