Let’s Say Nice Things About... Samoa Joe

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: Ring of Honor, TNA, and NXT Champion Samoa Joe.

I’ll begin: I have this feeling that Samoa Joe doesn’t just “play a badass on TV”. He’s a legit badass. Either that or he’s so convincing, you’ll walk on the other side of the street when you see him. His blend of wrestling styles is one of the most unique in all of wrestling. He’s got cruiserweight speed and super heavyweight strength. I wish I got to see prime Joe (i.e. his Ring of Honor run when he was the baddest man on the planet). I’m sure someone will evaluate on this.

Your turn: Say something nice about “the Samoan submission machine”.

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
