Samoa Joe Should Be WWE Champion Already

Samoa Joe Should Be WWE Champion Already

He's proven himself after coming back from two nasty injuries, Vince. Let him be the victor that gets the biggest spoil.


"Don't wait for an opportunity, make one." Samoa Joe has been WWE's version of The Punisher for over two years now, dominating opponents and terrorizing fans alike. His move to Smackdown Live in May has provided some shocking moments to the show, including Joe's savage attack on WWE Champion AJ Styles that set up their match at Summerslam this past Sunday. A two-time NXT Champion and multiple-time champion in other promotions like TNA, Joe has proven to the world that he can hang with the best in any promotion.

I hope Vince McMahon is reading this because I speak for everyone when I say Samoa Joe should be WWE Champion NOW.

Just two days after Summerslam where Joe won via DQ, he (as well as some fans) were angry at the fact that he didn't win the championship. In fact, reports say that McMahon was very close to switching the winner of that match the night of the show.


Joe has immense potential to be a dominant WWE Champion, and that's someone we need right now in the company. WWE lacks that 'big fight feel' in a superstar like Taz was to ECW or some stars in UFC. Joe is that solution to that drought. Imagine Joe having open challenges with anyone on Smackdown and having instant classics. He puts all of his energy in that ring, so why not capitalize on it and showcase more of his skills and personality.

I love AJ Styles, but Samoa Joe is a different breed of wrestling, a style bred with MMA that has that, yes, 'big fight feel.' A champion like Joe could provide interesting storytelling on Tuesday nights, and even main event some great PPVs like Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, even Royal Rumble. If McMahon realizes how pivotal Joe is to WWE, then Joe shall be champion in no time.

I cheered for Samoa Joe when I visited Brooklyn this past Sunday, and I'll gladly cheer for him after seeing the work he's put in so far in WWE.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
