    Lots of people are really high on Arion. I agree that he's a talented wrestler. He's got some real skills, but some of his matches drag from what I've seen. Not to mention I still can't tell what exactly his character is meant to be. I know Joe's a really good wrestler (unfortunately not as good as he was in 2006-2008) and he's part of the best new tag team to hit the scene in who knows how long. I've gotta vote Joe, in light of knowing that Fuji, KTK, and many others are voting for Arion anyways.

    I love Samoa Joe, really I do, but I can't go against my man Frankie after repping him to get into the tournament in the first place. GO FRANKIE!!!

    I've not seen much of Joe in the last year but I know before that he hadn't been good in quite some time.

    Not compared to how good he used to be certainly.

    Never seen Arion before, so I won't be voting on this one, despite being one of the guys that nom'd Joe in the first place (although that was essentially a 'making up the numbers' nom)

    There's plenty of non-super indy guys I'd rather see in this, like Damien Wayne, Vordell Walker, Jake Davis, etc, but I'll still vote for Arion because atleast he cares about wrestling.

    lol I can guarantee half of those who voted never watched a match, but really, I don't think anyone expected him to win this anyway.

    I like Joe, so cool.

    To be fair Arion hasn't been stuck in TNA for 7 years. Let's see how much he cares then.
