One of the original stars that was absent from all the festivities was Samoa Joe. The Samoan Submission Machine was one of the top stars during his time in Impact Wrestling.

Joe took to Twitter on Monday and shared his two cents on why he wasn’t showcased at the June 19th event. The former TNA World Heavyweight Champion said he wasn’t asked or available to film a video.

Dearest cackling hens. I wasn’t asked, or available, and it should not mar a great milestone set by Impact. Happy Anniversary, and my best going forward to all involved.

Joe left a path of destruction during his time in Impact (formerly known as TNA). Joe feuded with the likes of AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Sting, and Christopher Daniels and won numerous titles in the process.
