– As reported earlier, Samoa Joe was said to be very upset following his recent match with Jeff Hardy on iMPACT, which ended in a time limit draw. Joe was furious following the bout because he felt the finish was given away by TNA having ring announcer Jeremy Borash say there were 30 seconds remaining when he specifically asked them not to.
Joe hasn’t worked for the company since the outburst and as noted before, has been suspended indefinitley by the company. He wasn’t on hand for last week’s iMPACT television tapings in Orlando. One source claims Joe yelled at production team members David Sahadi and Keith Mitchell, while others say it was Vince Russo — who reportedly instructed Borash.
Meanwhile, another source felt that Joe was right about the finish being given away, but added that he handled the situation poorly.
