"The Best of Samoa Joe is one DVd you should own for a lot of reasons. Not only is he the most unstoppable man in TNA Wrestling today, but he also has had some of the best matches in TNA wrestling history as every man from Sonjay Dutt to Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles has fallen at his devastating Muscle Buster move...
Extra Matches that HOPEFULLY will be in their entirety:
Samoa Joe vs. Sunjay Dutt:
This was Joe's TNA debut in which he crushed Dutt after several minutes of taking some moves from Dutt but then finishing him off to start his [almost] year long undefeated streak. 7/10
Chris Sabin vs. Samoa Joe:
Great wrestling match. The high flying, technical Sabin meets the powerful, train charging Joe. Sabin takes a beating in the beginning but then fights back and even drop kicks Joe into the steel barricade. The fight back in the ring and Sabin even gives a running powerbomb to Joe which causes the crowd to go crazy. In the end Joe gives a great Muscle Buster and puts Sabin in his submission move to win the match. 9/10
Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles:
One of the best matches of 2005, just as good as their one on one match at Turning Point [Which is also included in this DVD.] AJ does a lot of high flying moves outside the ring onto Joe and Joe counters with MASSIVE kicks to the face and does his best unstoppable glare as AJ is down. Samoa Joe wins [Once again] 10/10
X Division Championship
Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels [Champion]
FANTASTIC Wrestling Match! All three men put on the best match of the year, maybe even the new millenium. Highlights inlude Joe and AJ kicking Daniels in the back multiple times while the crowd cheers them on. The match goes faster as every minute goes by. Joe even dives out of the ring onto both AJ and Daniels. Aj Styles wins the title after pinning Daniels. Samoa Joe's unpinned streak continues. 11/10
Bound For Glory 2005
Samoa Joe vs. Jushin Thunder Liger:
To be honest, I was a little disappointed. This match was less than 10 minutes, I was expecting 20. Not that these two didn't work well, they were great. Liger jumps out of the ring onto Joe and Joe fights back by ramming his knee into Liger's face. In the end Joe wins once again with his muscle buster. 8/10
Elimination X Match
Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, Alex Shelley and Roderick Strong
Sonjay Dutt, Matt Bently, Chris Sabin and Austin Aries
Another great wrestling match. 20 minutes of pure non-stop action [which is what TNA is all about] The ending comes down to Joe, Daniels and Sabin. Daniels tags himself in, much to Joe's surprise, and pins Sabin for the win for his team. 10/10
[I don't know if they are going to show Joe attacking Daniels after the match with a steel chair or not]
Turning Point 2005
X Division Championshp
Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles [Champion]:
About as good as their Sacrifice match [My Opinion] High flying moves, and a great moment when Aj Styles even powerbombs Samoa Joe! Despite AJ's best efforts, another man fell to Joe's unstoppable Muscle Buster. 9.5/10
Final Resolution 2006
X Division Championship
Samoa Joe [Champion] vs. Christopher Daniels:
I'm glad they put in Joe's first title defense in this DVD. In the storyline Daniels came back to attack Joe for what happened to him at Genesis. The result was a match at Final Resolution. Some back and forth action and even AJ Styles makes an appearance. Daniel's gets busted wide open and Joe did a lot of crazy eyed expressions as he stood over the Fallen Angel. The only problem was that AJ threw in the towel and ending the match by forfeit, declaring Joe the winner. Weak ending but good match. 9/10
This DVD is something that should be picked up when you get a chance to. I just wished they included the second triple threat match at Against All Odds earlier this year between AJ, Daniels, and Joe because it would have been even better to end the DVD with Joe victorious again in the rematch of the legendary first match. Oh well, this is still highly recommended..."
The Best "Big Man" In The Business Today
D.P. | California | 05/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Samoa Joe reminds me of a modern day Mike Awesome, Bam Bam Bigelow, or Undertaker (when he was in his prime) about a wrestler in a big body but yet can wrestle, fly & move quick like a crusierweight. You'll hear Samoa Joe throughout this DVD talking about various subjects like his TNA debut, his family's business, his early jobs & breaking into the wrestling business, thoughts on the Unbreakable match, his submission styles, what he does in his spare time, his temper including a story about an incident that happened in high school, the highs & lows of his career, and his reasons behind joining TNA. DVD extras include a music video, a picture slideshow, and extended interviews of him talking about growing up & what he does in his spare time.
vs. Sonjay Dutt - This was Joe's TNA debut and left quite an impression on everyone. Joe displayed power moves that you didn't see from the X division at that time while being able to move as quick as Sonjay Dutt for his size. Dutt got some moves in but overall, Joe dominated Dutt.
vs. Delirious - This was a quick squash match for Joe with the only thing noteworthy was the one crazy abdominal stretch he used during this match.
"Impact" June '05
vs. Chris Sabin - Unlike how he debut against Dutt was a showcase for this, this was a real competitive match. Sabin took the fight to Joe in this match as he pulled off various moves that you didn't expect such as a tornado DDT & a running powerbomb. Joe held his own here and even did a series of morphing one submission hold into another at one point before Joe got the well deserved victory. This was one of those matches were both men came out strong against each other regardless of who won.
No Surrender '05
(Best Of The X Division Vol. 1)
vs. A.J. Styles - Christopher Daniels was at ringside doing commentary during this match which was also finals of the Super X Cup tournament (or the "Christopher Daniels Invitational Tournament" as he described it). A majority of the time that you get any combination of Styles & Joe & Daniels in a match, your going to get a quality performance. It's hard to describe their matches because words don't do it justice but it should be noted how A.J. showcased his strength that you normally don't see from him against by doing various moves like Lex Luger's "Torture Rack" & a bodyslam.
vs. X Division Champion Christopher Daniels vs. A.J. Styles - This was the match that has made history on so many levels. This was the first time where the X Division Championship main evented a PPV and the quality of this match has gone down as one of the greatest (if not THE GREATEST) matches in the history of TNA to where it's still referenced to this day every single time two of these two wrestle each other. It's another match where you just have to see for yourself as words wouldn't do it justice but I need to make note that you'll get a laugh out of the opening moments where Daniels taunted both men & ended up paying for it.
vs. Jushin "Thunder" Liger - This was setup to be a dream match as one of the best of the "X" division style against one of the greatest of that same style of all time in Liger. It should be noted that both had impressive respectable entrances such playing to their heritage such as Joe's with the samoan dancers (and there's an interesting story behind that told on this DVD) along with Liger having the streamers at ringside. Unfortunally, this was disappointing by the fact that they didn't go as long as expected for a dream match but it was good for what they did but the fact that it was so short did hurt it.
Bound For Glory '05
Elimation X Match w/Christopher Daniels, Alex Shelly, Roderick Strong vs. Chris Sabin, Matt Bentley, Sonjay Dutt, Austin Aries - Great Survivor Series type battle between these eight with alot of the famous high spots & actual wrestling by each wrestler. However, the aftermath with Samoa Joe & Christopher Daniels is more memorable than anything else as it was one of the most brutal beatings in TNA history.
vs. Amazing Red - This was another short dominate Impact squash but pay attention to the clothesline Joe gave Red that flipped him inside out.
"Impact" Dec. '05
X Division Champion AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe - It's no secret that the series between these two & Christopher Daniels were the talk of professional wrestling for a year & this match was no exception. A.J. was out for revenge against Joe for breaking the "unwritten" code of the X division where it was all about the competition. This was intense to the point where at one point & throughout the rest of the match, Styles had his lip bleeding because a chuck of it was missing & yet still fought hard against Samoa Joe. Back & forth action which again goes with what I said earlier about how you get QUALITY whenever you get any two of these three in the ring together.
vs. Jay Lethal - Just like the other Impact matches, this was a quick dominate squash by Joe.
"Impact" Dec. '05
vs. Christopher Daniels - Daniels came seeking revenge for what Joe did to him at Genesis along with the fact despite the fact that he wasn't 100%. You really saw Joe turn into a assassian during this match as Daniels tried & even got close to beating Joe on a couple of occassions but Joe targed Daniels head, busting him open, and just repeatily punishing his head to the point where Daniels couldn't defend himself and A.J. Styles did what he felt he had to do.
In the end, if your a fan of high wrestling quality then get this DVD...no questions asked!"
5 stars for the matches
Matthew K. Putnam | Brooklyn Park, Minnesota United States | 06/06/2006

"This looks to be TNA's best ever DVD. Nearly all the matches are a must see.
vs. Sonjay Dutt (**1/2) Nothing really special about this one. I've only watched it once. Dutt gets some offense in, but of course Joe pulls out the victory
vs. Chris Sabin (****1/2) A strong contender for match of the year 2005 and the most under-rated match in TNA. This is the classic "young lion" vs. "unstoppable monster" match. Both wrestlers told a great story.
vs. A.J. Styles (****3/4)
The finals of the Super X Cup tournament. A.J. and Joe prove while they are two of the best in the business. The only thing that holds me back from giving it 5 stars is the fact that it's overshadowed by the following match
September 11, 2005 (Unbreakable) (*****)
vs. Christopher Daniels (X-Division Champion) vs. A.J. Styles
This is it folks. The most talked about match in TNA and the match by which every other TNA match is judged. This, not Barbed Wire Massacre was the match of the year for 2005. Every real wrestling fan knows this. Some people are going to say it's over-rated because it's a spot fest. It's not. The spots are well placed and make sense. These 3 do things you've never seen in a ring. They tried two more times to recapture the magic of this one, but didn't come close on both occasions. This is the match that you show your friends who have never seen TNA.
vs. Jushin Thunder Liger (**)
Too short. May be the worst match on the DVD. I honestly don't remember this match too well.
with Christopher Daniels, Roderick Strong and Alex Shelly vs. Chris Sabin, Matt Bentley, Sonjay Dutt and Autin Aries (****)
Another exciting X-Division match. This match is significant because it was the start of Joe's heel turn
vs. A.J. Styles (X-Division Champion) (*****)
Wow. If the Unbreakable 3- way didn't happen, this would be the match of the year. A.J. gets some offense in, but Joe proves to be too much. Me typing about it, doesn't do it justice. See it for yourself.
vs. Christopher Daniels (****)
This one took a couple of viewings for me to get into. The two had a great match, with a great story behind it, but the ending was a little weak
For sheer match quality, one of the best wrestling DVDs ever

"Samoa Joe, as a performer, has taken wrestling by storm, and if you wanna know what all the hubbub is about, this DVD is the PERFECT place to start. If you have even a passing interest in pro wrestling, you must own this. It's cheap and the matches on here are simply unreal. The Unbreakable match in DVD quality is worth the price of admission alone, and that's just ONE MATCH. You also get EVERY PPV match Joe was in from his debut to Final Resolution, including the two A.J. classics, the Elimination X from Genesis, the Daniels rematch, the Sabin bout from No Surrender, and more. Plus Joe gives a lot of great interviews on everything from how he broke in to how he very nearly gave up on wrestling (NO!) before he signed with TNA (YAY!). Simply put, everything is complete, and there is not a bad match on this collection. GET ALL THIS!"
