Roman Reigns is surrounded by family at this point, and the Bloodline saga isn’t disappointing at all. Now, another one of his family members is getting into the ring.

While the Anoa’i family continues to dominate in WWE through stars like Roman Reigns, The Usos, and Solo Sikoa, another member of the Bloodline has recently made his pro wrestling debut. This new addition to the family’s epic lineage will undoubtably boost their longevity in the pro wrestling business.

Zilla Fatu, an actual cousin of the central figures in the ongoing WWE Bloodline storyline, stepped into the ring for the first time at Reality of Wrestling. The company, founded by WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, is the Texas-based wrestling school that served as the platform for Fatu’s debut.

Fatu’s family connections are noteworthy, as his father is the late WWE star Umaga, who is the brother of The Usos and Solo Sikoa’s father, Rikishi.


Zilla Fatu has expressed his aspiration to join WWE, but his journey to achieve that dream hasn’t been without challenges. After serving a six-year prison sentence at the Texas State Penitentiary for aggravated robbery, starting at the age of 15, Fatu was released in March 2022.

Despite his father’s lack of encouragement toward his children pursuing professional wrestling, Zilla Fatu has persevered and began his training at Reality of Wrestling to pursue his passion for the sport. It seems like he is on the right track.
