Samoa Joe teamed with AJ Styles to face The Addiction in a “DVD exclusive” match that took place at last night’s Ring of Honor television tapings in New York City. As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium, Joe was unable to work the show taped for Destination America because he’s under WWE contract and DA is national television. We have more on Joe's WWE deal at this link.
Below is the result of Joe’s goodbye match, written by Scott Brooks:
DVD Exclusive Match
Match 1) AJ Styles and Samoa Joe defeated The Addiction in about 16 minutes when Joe hit a Muscle Buster on Daniels and AJ hit a Styles Clash on Kazarian, allowing AJ to pin Kazarian and win the match.
Samoa Joe took a microphone as the roster (minus the main heels such as Lethal and Whitmer) came to the ring. He said he could pour his heart out about how the fans supported him and his brothers in what they love to do for this place and that is professional wrestling. He said he can go on and on about how the fans proved them all wrong because the best in the world wrestled in this ring. And though this might be his last time in this ring, he will take what he did in this ring and put it into his heart and he will take it and show it to the world for them all to see. He is Samoa Joe and he is pro wrestling because he wrestled here in ROH. The roster gets in the ring and lifts Joe up along with plenty of hugs to send the crowd home happy.
