In a compelling announcement, WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi recently declared that another member from the esteemed Anoa’i family is ready to step into the wrestling ring. Zilla Fatu, the son of the late Umaga (Rikishi’s brother), is set to make his debut in the sport that his family has dominated for decades. 

Born Isayah Fatu, he has adopted his professional name in a nod to his Samoan heritage, following the trend set by his forebears in the wrestling business. This latest addition to the Anoa’i family legacy has been in intensive training with Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling (ROW) promotion and is scheduled to make his first in-ring appearance on July 15 at ROW’s Summer of Champions show at the Humble Civic Center, Texas. 

Rikishi Weighs in on the Newest Addition to the Wrestling Dynasty

Rikishi expressed his confidence and pride in his nephew’s decision to join the family business. 

“I’m proud to say my younger brother Umaga’s youngest son, Zilla Fatu, real name Isayah, he’s out there with Booker T in Houston, Texas, so he’s under good hands. He wanted to try the family business,”

Apter pressed Rikishi on the potential of other Samoan wrestlers waiting in the wings, pointing towards the continuing strength of the Samoan lineage in the wrestling world. The former Intercontinental Champion didn’t reveal specifics but seemed optimistic about the future of the Anoa’i wrestling legacy. 

Rikishi’s Potential Return to WWE and Thoughts on Solo Sikoa

In addition to introducing his nephew to the wrestling world, Rikishi also addressed the speculations about his potential return to the WWE, hinting at a possible solution for The Bloodline’s problems. However, he remained non-committal, preferring to let the anticipation build and keeping fans eagerly guessing.

Moreover, Rikishi also expressed his opinions on Solo Sikoa’s use of Umaga’s former finishing move, the Samoan Spike. The move is a tribute to the late Umaga, and its usage symbolizes continuity and respect within the Samoan wrestling tradition.

A New Dawn in the Samoan Wrestling Saga

With the debut of Zilla Fatu, the Anoa’i family continues to solidify its place in wrestling history. Their legacy, enriched by the likes of WWE legends like Rikishi and Umaga, now adds another chapter with Fatu’s step into the wrestling ring. As the world watches, the Samoan bloodline is once again ready to showcase its wrestling prowess and further the dynasty’s respected reputation.
