Why didn't Samoa Joe become huge?
 
In terms of stardom, not size.

His ROH work was amazing. In 2006 he became super over in TNA. He drew TNA's biggest ever buyrates in his matches with Kurt Angle.

So with everything going for him, why didn't Joe really hit the big time? Was he the right man in the wrong place at the wrong time? Did he become complacent and lose some passion?

I love Joe, but he hasn't hit the heights he should have.

Nation of Violence Joe was too gimmicky and cheesy and ruined his basic indy ass-kicker character. That and he kept getting fatter.

he was good from 2004-2007 but from 2008-2011 he was just boring and his gimmick wasn't good and he became really fat and as powerful as he once was.

They pulled the trigger at the wrong time. When he should of won the World title, he didn't win it. When they decided to give him the title it was too late. His momentum had already died.

TNA screwed up his push and in turn he stopped caring.

It's good to see Joe getting some momentum back now, but it's mind-boggling to think how badly TNA messed up a sure thing. Samoa Joe was arguably the hottest act in pro wrestling throughout 2006. Then they stalled his push, changed his gimmick, involved him in some of the worst storylines in TNA history, and that was that. The magic was gone.
