The latest Anoa’i family member to enter the world of professional wrestling has begun training. Zilla Fatu, son of late WWE superstar Umaga, has reported to WWE Hall of Famer Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling training school. The Bloodline, WWE’s top faction, is made up of members of the Anoa’i family, including Roman Reigns, the Usos, and Solo Sikoa.
Given his family ties and Booker T’s relationship with WWE, Fatu joining the company and The Bloodline in the future would not be surprising. Nevertheless, given the young performer’s inexperience, that is most likely a long way off. The Anoa’i family is also well-known in the world of Reality of Wrestling. The Usos made a surprise appearance for the firm during their development days in 2008, along with then-manager Athena.
Umaga came out to celebrate their victory and raised their arms. Umaga died in the following year, but members of his family are still carrying the flame of his wrestling legacy. Another person in the family is Dwayne Johnson, who is a second cousin to Reigns, the Usos, as well as Sikoa’s father, Rikishi. Young Fatu has a lot to live up to with that kind of pedigree. However, this implies he will have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw on as he enters the outrageous world of pro wrestling.
The Rock vs Roman Reigns
Rumours and speculation have surfaced relating The Rock possibly appearing and winning the Royal Rumble match in January, a judgement that may be controversial given his likely absence following WrestleMania. If The Rock wins the Royal Rumble match, he will compete for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, which is currently occupied by his cousin, Roman Reigns, at WrestleMania. Booker T, a two-time WWE Hall of Famer and current NXT commentator, recently weighed in on the matter.
It’s really simple, according to Booker on The Hall of Fame podcast. If he hopes to win the Royal Rumble and then go to WrestleMania, he’s got the biggest star in Hollywood, if not the top five; d*****, he’s winning. That is how I would phrase it. If he has time off, knows how much money we’re going to be paying him, and he can fit it in, that’s what the story would be. Nevertheless, Booker added that Rock being in the Royal Rumble match isn’t the best way to reach Rock-Reigns at WrestleMania.
