Nuufolau Joel Seanoa (born March 17, 1979) better known by his ring name Samoa Joe, is American professional wrestler signed to WWE. He is best known for his time with Ring of Honor (ROH) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).

Before debuting in TNA in June 2005, Seanoa competed in ROH, where he held the ROH World Championship for a record 21 months. Upon joining TNA, Seanoa embarked upon an 18-month-long undefeated streak, in which he never lost a match by pinfall or submission. That streak came to an end at the Genesis event in 2006, when he tapped out to Kurt Angle's ankle lock submission hold.

Throughout his career, Seanoa has won numerous championships, including a dozen between ROH, TNA, and Japan. He has held the ROH World Championship and the ROH Pure Championship once each, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once, the X Division Championship five times, the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice, the TNA Television Championship once, and in the Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling Noah he is a one-time GHC Tag Team Champion with fellow TNA wrestler Magnus. He has also won the 2005 Super X Cup Tournament, the 2008 King of the Mountain match (the only one to retain the world championship in the match), the TNA Triple Crown Championship, and the TNA Grand Slam Championship. Seanoa debuted in WWE, in its developmental territory WWE NXT, on May 20th 2015.
