Umaga’s son Zilla Fatu has been making a lot of noise in the independent scene as well as in Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion. He is a true member of The Bloodline and it appears he aims to follow in The Bloodline’s footsteps and join WWE instead of AEW.

Outside WWE, there are quite a few members of the Anoa’i family that are successful in pro wrestling. Zilla Fatu joined Booker T’s wrestling school Reality of Wrestling back in December 2022, but left the promotion over “irreconcilable differences.”

However, Zilla Fatu would return to the promotion again in February of this year and has been showing the world just how good he really is. Fatu is currently in the conversation as many fans feel he will join WWE and join his Bloodline members, including the likes of The Usos, Solo Sikoa and others.

In an interview with Joey Franchize, Zilla Fatu shared his thoughts on being part of the real-life Bloodline and expressed gratitude for the legacy of those who paved the way for the family.


“It feels good, Uce. It feels good. I’m happy. I feel like we all deserve it because I got people that came before us. The people that came before me, you gotta give them their flowers, like Afa and Sika, like Snuka and The Rock and Peter Maivia. Those guys really started this foundation for our family. Then obviously The Rock, Rikishi, my uncle, [Yokozuna], they all took it to a whole nother level. Then you got Roman [Reigns], The Usos, The Bloodline, they taking it to a whole nother level. So it’s really a family business, for real, and I’m just so happy and blessed to be a part of this. I’m coming up too. Like I said, I’m on the indies, but I’m not in no rush.”

When asked about his preference between WWE and AEW, Fatu leaned towards WWE, citing the extensive history his family shares with the company. He expressed a desire to maintain that legacy rather than being the first to venture into AEW.

“WWE, uce. That’s the main one. Like I said, back to what I was saying with my family, my family got a long history with WWE. So at the same time, I don’t want to be the first Fatu or Anoaʻi to go to AEW. I don’t want to break that cycle. But it just gotta make sense because everybody’s journey is different. My journey’s different. My story’s way different from Solo’s, from The Usos’, from Roman and Jacob [Fatu]. So my story, I got a whole nother chapter. I’m sitting on a whole nother side of the table.”

Zilla Fatu made an appearance at the Royal Rumble in January and even linked up with Jey Uso earlier this year. It remains to be seen whether Zilla Fatu will make his way to WWE in the future.
