Widely considered by many wrestling fans to be the best match in TNA Wrestling’s history, Samoe Joe vs. Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles for the TNA X-Division Championship from 2005’s Unbreakable still holds up as a modren classic. The match displayed all of the high flying and hard hitting action that the X-Division, one of the best features in TNA roster.

Samoa Joe in 2005 was a beast with a furious ability give and take punishment in any style of match. His flexibility to work in various wrestling style made him the perfect foil for the frantic speed of AJ Styles and the ever-conniving mind-games of ‘the Fallen Angel’. Daniels shows how much of talented wrestler he can be here, as he makes his opponents look like gold. And Styles is simply what they say he is, he is phenomenal from bell-to-bell.

There is reason why TNA fans point to this match as one of the company’s best examples of their alternative style. It shows off the passion and unrelenting work their wrestlers put on for their die-hard fans in an unfiltered fantastic match.
