In a very WWE like move TNA is calling in there priority status on Samoa Joe. From now on Joe will only work for TNA and TNA booked independant appearances. I hope they book him enough gigs for all the ROH money he was forced to give up.

So does Joe have a right to be pissed? TNA certainly gave him more exposure than any one else to this date. ROH was not going to get him a action figure, or on widely seen tv and PPV's or in the ring with Kurt Angle.

In a weird comparison this is kinda like when Verne Gagne was trying to get more and more control over Hogan when he was getting huge. Verne knew if he put the belt on Hogan and booked him around the globe as AWA champ he could dip into Hogan's merchandise and Japan money. Of course Hogan realized this and told Verne to screw his belt and kept all his money and got even more from Vince, and the rest is history.

Here's Samoa's announcement, courtesy of 411mania via YouTube:

I have to side with TNA here, as much as it pains me (because they've sucked lately). They've obviously have big plans for Joe and have put a lot of money into him. The last thing they want is to line him up for a big match and have him injure his knee wrestling a 35 min match with Bryan Danielson the night before. I'm sure with Panda's deep pockets, he'll more than make up his money from losing the ROH gig. As much as I've gotten into ROH, I'm guessing they don't pay as well as TNA, especially when they get their 2 hours on Spike.

Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Once Russo finishes booking TNA completely into the ground I'm sure Joe will be welcomed back into ROH with open arms. At least until Vince picks up to be Umaga's little brother.

I wonder how mutual this is. I mean, did it go down like TNA forced Joe out of ROH by saying, "Joe, we own you. Don't do anymore outside stuff and we will brook no complaints!"?

Or did TNA say, "Joe, you're our #1 marquee guy from here on out if you dedicate yourself exclusively to us"?

I guess this was inevitable in either case. I wonder if means anything for Homicide's future.

Well, ROH is just a training ground anyway. Jim Ross said so!

This is very scary, because if TNA does this to everybody who works for both companies, then ROH will not have many people left. Homicide, Chris Daniels, Austin Aries/Starr and others all work both, and this could be devastating to ROH.

That said, there isn't much else left for Samoa Joe in ROH. He lost a pretty convincing match to Homicide in Edison, NJ just this past Saturday. He's had the title already, and outside of the Joe/NOAH feud, there's no real storyline with him. Plus, if Joe takes a break for a year or two, then he can come back and be a fresh face in ROH again.

I suppose I should be happy that I will get to see him face Morishima in NYC and face Davey Richards in Philly in February before Joe is finished with ROH.

Regarding Bischoff and the clear signs we have now that this is going nowhere good and taking the slowest route to get there, I'm always amazed? fascinated? at how much Vince and HHH would absorb of the worst booking habits of Bischoff and Nash.
