Cabana Man Dan Recalls Teaming With Samoa Joe In 2007

Full Throttle Wrestling only lasted for three years (2005 to 2008), but in those three years, names such as Corey Graves, Steve Corino, Eric Young, Chris Hero, and more would make appearances at the event.

One of the more surprising names to show up was Samoa Joe, a multi-time IMPACT X-Division Champion at this point, who made an appearance at FTW 2nd Anniversary in 2007.

In his appearance, Joe needed help from Cabana Man Dan to fend off Chrisjen Hayme and Insane Lane.

Speaking to Jeremy Lambert & Stephen Jensen on The Spotlight, Dan recalled teaming with Joe.

"Well, you know, I had to carry him through the match [laughs]. He was in TNA at the time and he was working the indies with a bad back. He was wrestling Insane Lane in a quick one-on-one, Chrisjen Hayme came in to make it two on one, Cabana Man Dan makes the save, we'll have a straight up tag team match, playa. It was amazing. Joe was a treat to work with. I don't even know if he remembers, he's been everywhere. I remember it really well. Even before the show, he was dropping nuggets of knowledge to people and giving what he knew. He is huge in person. He took a picture with me and my wife, and both of us together are not as big as Samoa Joe. He shook my hand in the middle of the ring, got a nice picture of that. 'Here's Samoa Joe with this small kindergartner.' It was really cool. It's something I get to keep in my memories forever. Just another Tuesday at Donna's Music Bar," said Dan.

FTW 2nd Anniversary Show marked Joe's only appearance at Full Throttle Wrestling.

Elsewhere during the interview, Dan discussed doing WWE extra work and getting a Singh brother thrown on him by Braun Strowman. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
