The talk about not fighting a Samoan or else you have to deal with all of them made me look up the family tree in wrestling. It's a long mfer.

The Anoa'i (SAMOAN) Wrestling Family Tree




High Chief Peter Maivia with his daughter. He was considered a brother to Afa & Sika's father.



Afa & Sika Anoa'i, the Wild Samoans



Samu (Afa's eldest son) and Fatu (Rikishi, his mother was Afa & Sika's sister)



L.A. Smooth (Lloyd Anoa'i, Afa's middle son)



Afa Jr. (the youngest)



Rocky Johnson, married Peter Maivia's daughter



The Rock (Maivia's grandson, Rocky's son)



The late Gary Albright (married Afa's 2nd youngest daughter)



Superfly Jimmy Snuka (married into the family, one of Afa and Sika's sisters I believe, unless that's just a story)



Former WWE wrestler Deuce and Sim Snuka. (James Jr., Snuka's son)



Current WWE Diva Tamina Snuka



The former Rosey in WWE or RO-Z on the indies. (Matt, Sika's oldest son)



Currently Roman Reigns in WWE as part of THE SHIELD (Joe, Sika's youngest son. He played football at Georgia Tech and was briefly a member of the Minnesota Vikings as an UDFA)



The Tonga Kid was in WWF in the 80s (brothers with Rikishi, his mom was Afa/Sika's sister)



The late Umaga in WWE (younger brother to both Fatu & Tonga Kid)



Currently Jimmy and Jey Uso on WWE TV (Jon and Josh, they're Fatu's sons)



The late Yokozuna in WWF in the early 90s (Rodney, his father Junior was Afa and Sika's brother)



On the most recent American Gladiators, he was TOA (a Hollywood stuntman, Tanoai Reed is the Lia Maivia's [Peter's wife] great nephew)



Pro boxer David Tua is related somehow to Afa & Sika



Former pro wrestler Black Pearl (Reno Anoa'i, his father is Afa & Sika's oldest brother)




That's about it. The combined families have about 10-15 more years before they can say they've been in the pro wrestling business for a century…give or take.


And no…Troy Polamalu is not related to them….
