A Legend and an icon; the man known worldwide as Samoa Joe was one of the men upon whose hard work, drive, and determination Ring of Honor was built. His World Title reign set records that still stand, over 7 years since it was brought to an end, but what happens when something that epic comes to an end? This is that tale, the story of how Samoa Joe cemented his position as a true legend whose legacy is still felt to this day by every ROH wrestler, especially the World champions that have followed.

From his tenure as the Pure Champion that marked him as the first man to hold two championships in ROH through his “5th Year Festival” bouts that marked the end of his ROH career, witness Samoa Joe’s clashes against Nigel McGuinness, Homicide, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, and many others!
