He was booked badly which effectively killed his spirit and sent him off into obscurity.

Re: Why didn't Samoa Joe become huge?

TNA had more faith in the likes of Christian, Booker, Angle and Hardy rather than Joe. They preferred to bring guys in from WWE and push them towards the TNA title, rather than taking their time and building their own stars.

There have been times in which they have featured the likes of Joe and AJ but they were never really made to look better than the former WWE guys and were barely equals at the best of times.

How CM Punk & John Cena can be the 'biggest in the business' above Joe is ridiculous. All WWE/TNA effects asside.
Yea just NO not when there is a man named Bryan Danielson around.

It would appear that he is on his way back up. Hopefully he still has some miles left on him and the desire to make that climb.

no one was take him seriously with a much more bloated gut than before and a penis painted on his face

the term you were looking for was sawed off monster, a generic monster is an always angry prodding stomping slow clubbing 5 move of doom guywho hasn't worked on his cardio nearly enough, you seriously thought Joe was a generic monster? oblivious doesn't even begin to...

The best thing for both TNA and Joe is to keep the TV strap on him for a very, very long time.

Re: Why didn't Samoa Joe become huge?

Russo's depushing booking style. Joe was the biggest and best thing going in TNA with Scott DMore at the helm, but then again so was the awesomeness of Styles, Daniels, LAX, AMW, Paparrazi and much more. Then Russo comes back and everyone instead of looking like a million bucks looks like crap except Kurt Angle. Styles starts carrying Christian's bags on screen, Daniels fades away, LAX job to Team 3D in some sort of electrified cage match and well Joe became a whiney bitch even before the dick is painted on his face. I remember Joe's promos in his feud with Scott Steiner. Such a bad ass. Then all of a sudden he needed Kevin Nash and then Tazto be his mentor? Why? Terrible booking from a terrible booker.

A combination of bad booking and not being able to stay in shape.
