Madness.

They keep Festus, Mike Knox, Shad, Khali, Ezekiel Jackson, Kozlov who are all less talented than Umaga, but drop Umaga? Madness.

Umanga had the best fresh character on wwe in a while in my opinion, and he could really tell a
story in the ring.

Wow, I am stunned by this. I wasn't really a fan of Umaga but you cannot give him props being a big guy with his kind of agility. There are so many other wrestlers who deserve the boot because of their in ring product but Umaga was always entertaining, unlike Koslov who I can't stand. When he started on Smackdown, I could have sworn he reminded me of Ludvig Borga (anyone who doesnt know who that is, dont worry, he didnt last long in the wwe), and I didn't think he was that good, but that's me.

the nation of violence with a second member??? i don't.

the character was done well but really what could you do with him. we all know he isn't unbeatable anymore. his character like so many others in the wwe like koslov lose credibility once they lose too many times and vince loves to make people look unbeatable only to feed them to someone and lose. they have kane thats all they need for that job. the rest need not apply.

they should have dropped the character and kept him. maybe there is something we don't know about either.

You kidding me? Kane has been gone for a while. Seems more like Big Show is filling those shoes by getting beat by Cena multiple times in a row.

I'm reasonably sure Joe's are real, but Umaga's are definitely face paint and not real.

ESPN: You recently switched things up a little with the face paint. Why the change?

Samoa Joe: You know what, it's really just an extension of the character. That's the great thing about pro wrestling as you can take a persona you have and really keep pushing and pushing it as there really are no boundaries, no lines. It's just a continuation of my character. Where people knew me as a really aggressive person, now I'm over-the-top aggressive. We'll see how far I can push it.

ESPN: What is the face paint symbol of?

Samoa Joe: It's actually the equivalent of the family crest. The Samoan culture in the designs all have different meanings, but if you look at The Rock's tattoo on his arm, if you get a breakdown of what is in there, there's a lot of family history. It's the same thing with mine. I worked on it with my pops and a few different people and they put it together for me.

Key being face paint.
