Nuufolau Joel Seanoa, best known as Samoa Joe, is an American professional wrestler and actor currently signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and its sister promotion, Ring of Honor (ROH). He is a former two-time AEW TNT Champion and the current ROH World Television Champion in his first reign. For his contributions and work in Ring of Honor throughout the 2000s and 2010s, he was inducted into the ROH Hall of Fame as part of its 2022 inaugural class. Outside of ROH and AEW, he also found success working for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA; now known as Impact Wrestling) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
He established himself in ROH from the promotion's beginning in 2002, holding the ROH World Championship for a record 21 months from March 2003 to December 2004. Upon joining TNA in June 2005, he embarked on a 19-month-long undefeated streak, and went on to hold the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once, the TNA X Division Championship five times, the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice, and the TNA Television Championship once; completing the TNA Triple Crown and the TNA Grand Slam.
He also wrestled internationally – especially Japan – winning several titles, including the GHC Tag Team Championship with Magnus in Pro Wrestling Noah, and he was an inaugural NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Champion with Keiji Sakoda in Pro Wrestling Zero1.
Joe officially debuted in WWE's developmental territory NXT in May 2015, and signed a full-time contract with the company in June; he went on to become the first-ever two-time NXT Champion, and the co-winner of the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic (with Finn Bálor). After joining the main roster in January 2017 and being assigned to the Raw brand, he headlined several WWE pay-per-view events and contended for the Universal Championship, and later the WWE Championship during his time on the SmackDown brand. In 2019, Joe won his only title on the main roster, the United States Championship, on two occasions. Following several injuries, he became a color commentator on Raw. He was released from his contract in April 2021, but was re-signed just two months later to be an on-screen authority figure on NXT and shortly after would return to in-ring competition to win the NXT Championship for the third time in his career before he was released once again in January 2022.
All totaled between TNA/Impact, ROH, WWE, AEW, and Noah, Joe has held 20 total championships (including two world titles), and is the only wrestler to have won championships in WWE, Impact, AEW and ROH.
