Default Samoa JOE TURNS DOWN TNA

sources: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Samoa Joe was offered a three-year contract extension from TNA but didn't sign it

trust me Cena and Joe are close friends trust me he will be taken care of in the WWE.


all cena's close friends getting pushes nitro ecw champ,orton maybe next wwe champ,umaga ive seen a video of them hanging out on youtube hes the ic champ and had a fued with cena.joe will be ok if he goes the wwe.


I would like to see Joe wrestle guys like Edge, Cena, HBK, HHH, Kane, Taker and the Hardyz (not sure if he and Jeff ever had a match in TNA, I don't watch). Having the cliche'd Samoan match would only fuel the speculation that Umaga is a Samoa Joe clone. I think bringing him on to ECW for some much needed star power would be a good fit and then peut-etre trade him to Raw or Smackdown for the upper midcard would be the best course of action. Just because the indie fans love Joe doesn't mean the mainstream fans do, gradually introducing him and showing what he can do before a big push would be smart.

Thay would use joe in WWE to get talent over, nothing more. Samoa has wanted to come to WWE in the past, but thay wasn't intested. Ortons push is coming from him being good friends with Triple H and Flair.

Samoa Joe in the WWE would be crap. Vince McMahon would turn him into a joke and make him job on ECW or SmackDown like Monty Brown. He'd probably have him change his name so no one could "google search" Samoa Joe and find out about TNA (seriously that's why he made Monty Brown change his name). Joe would be a moron for doing that and TNA would be bigger morons for letting Joe walk out.

Joe was offered a development deal in WWE before but he turned it down. It's only rumoured that he turned it down anyway. Perhaps he doesn't want to rush into making a decision and wants to evaluate all his options. Doesn't mean he'll be gone from TNA.

Umaga is a bad rip off of Joe. If they signed Joe, Umaga would be pointless.

Joe wouldn't go to the WWE. If he doesn't sign with TNA he'll probably go back to ROH.
