As WrestleMania 40 Sunday unfolds tonight, there’s a buzz in the air hinting at the possibility of The Bloodline expanding within WWE’s ranks. Jacob Fatu, a prominent name in wrestling circles, has reportedly shared news of his signing with WWE.

Reports circulating within the wrestling community, as per Fightful Select, suggest that Fatu has informed associates of his recent agreement with WWE. However, official confirmation from WWE sources is still pending, and Fatu himself has maintained silence amid inquiries.

Fatu’s absence from the ring since his last appearance at GCW’s event on March 24 in Rochester, NY has raised eyebrows among fans who anticipated his presence.

So, who exactly is Jacob Fatu? The 31-year-old wrestler hails from a distinguished wrestling lineage, counting himself as the cousin of WWE’s Usos and the son of The Tonga Kid.


Under the tutelage of his uncle Rikishi, Fatu embarked on his wrestling journey in 2012. He gained prominence upon joining MLW in 2019 and made waves by clinching the promotion’s world title in July of that year, triumphing over Tom Lawlor.

Fatu’s tenure with MLW reached its conclusion at the Philadelphia tapings on February 3. Now, with reports of his imminent move to WWE, wrestling fans eagerly await his debut and speculate on the role he might play within the organization, especially considering the landscape under Triple H’s purview.
