Re: Samoa Joe on wwe.com

WWE.com used to mention TNA back in 2008-09 until TNA's ratings reached an all-time high in 2010.

Have you noticed VInce really hasn't raided TNA for talent.
That's why Ric Flair requested to leave WWE and WWE tried unsuccessfully to block TNA taping venues, right?

Re: Samoa Joe on wwe.com

Joe is a nice guy and has lots of friends in the back (cena, punk).

i would love to see Joe v Undertaker for example.

Re: Samoa Joe on wwe.com

Well I guess the article was written by some renowned indy expert judging by that sentence about the "You're gonna get your (fucking) head kicked in" chant which is obviously Danielson's.

English is not my first language. Please take that into account before you start to attack my grammar. Thanks.

What's TNA? Yeah, it's probs a backhanded insult at them I guess.

Re: Samoa Joe on wwe.com

You can still find old TNA news bits on WWE.com

http://www.wwe.com/inside/industrynews/6544892

They ended it because it was a waste of time really. It was just cut and paste from other dirtsheets, so didnt garner any extra attention to the site.

That was before .....'s arrival I believe. Good old JasonLives.

Seriously, how can you write an article about Joe and completely ignore TNA?

Yeah it ended shortly before ..... came in. But several months before it was removed it barely got updated with news bits outside WWE. The section was to try and garner traffic to the site, it didnt, so it got dropped. Not much too it.

If WWE dropped it because they felt threatened by TNA at the time they would have done it in the spring when TNA was doing good numbers with average 1.8-1.9 million viewers for 3 months straight, and kept beating WWE ECW.

WWE doesnt mention anything what the other wrestlers did after their WWE appearance either. So its not just Joe.

I agree with both of you here. Vince hasn't "raided" TNA for talents but I think that has more to with the fact that 90% of TNA wrestlers don't have the WWE aka Superstar look. I think when Booby Roode and Magnus contracts are up Vince will probably make an offer. Samoa Joe has a lot of friends backstage as mentioned by a poster above so I could see him getting into WWE one day.
