It’s heartening news in the latest update on the health of Afa, The Wild Samoan.

According to a post shared on the WXW Wrestling Facebook page on May 12, 2024, Afa underwent a successful Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure on Thursday, May 9, to replace his aortic valve. Remarkably, he was discharged from the hospital on May 11. The post reads:

“On Thursday, our beloved patriarch Afa the Wild Samoan had a successful TAVR procedure to replace his aortic valve. Yesterday afternoon he was discharged from the hospital! We’re all so grateful that this final hurdle has been passed! Now he has more back rehabilitation to do, but our Pops kicked out again and is one of the strongest human beings in the world! Thank you all for your prayers and concern!”

This positive development comes as a relief to fans and well-wishers who have been following Afa’s health journey. Despite the challenges ahead, Afa’s resilience shines through, demonstrating his remarkable strength and determination.


Afa Jr., also known as former WWE Superstar Manu, recently announced his takeover of WXW, with plans to expand the promotion’s reach to cable television in Pennsylvania.

Ringside News continues to extend its best wishes for Afa’s continued recovery and good health.
