Samoa Joe Breaks Silence Over TNA Bound for Glory 2008 Story



Home News Samoa Joe Breaks Silence Over TNA Bound for Glory 2008 Story

Former WWE Superstar and also Impact Wrestling/TNA alumni Samoa Joe answered a question on Twitter regarding a longstanding rumor/myth that he had broken his tailbone during his TNA Bound for Glory match against Sting. The myth behind this tale (no pun intended) began when Samoa Joe had missed a running dropkick and landed hard on the concrete steps during that match.

Here is what Samoa Joe had to say regarding this story:


“Nope, in fact I didn’t miss a day of work. I have refrained commenting on this because I have enjoyed how the legend grew over the years & it been somewhat of a social experiment for me watching it manifest as such a absolute truth. Person did his homework. Myth busted.

“Also it was never suppose to be what it was in the chaos of the crowd Sting was moved down the steps and what was supposed to be a cool slightly dangerous flying forearm had to be audibled into that mid air much to my surprise.


“The social experiment started when wrestlers I would meet would bring it up to me as a fact some even saying that ‘Man that changed your style up huh’ which I would agree with, then internally shake my head at how easily rumor becomes fact.


“In fact in this media environment I stopped trying to debunk things said about me because in the battle of “truth” vs “narrative”, narrative will always find a way to justify why truth is wrong. Also it makes it easier for me

to sus out who is full of it. Just to clarify if you where a colleague who ASKED me about it I told the truth, even some fans I met a autograph signings BUT if you stated it to me as fact, I let you believe what you want. Mainly because you didn’t have the common courtesy to even see if it was true.”
