Roman Reigns has been notably absent from WWE television following his defeat by Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 40, marking the end of his historic nearly four-year-long title reign.

This hiatus coincided with a significant personal loss, as his father, Sika Anoa’i, passed away at the age of 79 on June 25th. The wrestling community mourned the loss of this legendary figure, and Reigns has been deeply affected by his father’s passing.

A poignant photo from the memorial service showed Roman Reigns alongside Rikishi and Reno Anoa’i, also known as Black Pearl, highlighting the close-knit nature of the Anoa’i wrestling dynasty.

In a new video shared by Reigns’ cousin, Zilla Fatu, on Instagram, The Head of the Table is seen delivering a heartfelt eulogy for his father. Reigns recalled a powerful life lesson when Sika threw him into the deep end of an Olympic-sized pool, teaching him to swim or sink—a lesson that profoundly impacted his career.


“I told him I’m good over here, we’re good. Next thing I know, I am looking left, looking right, my hair is snatched, and he launches me into the deep end of this Olympic-sized pool,” Reigns recounted.

Sika’s passing marks the end of an era in professional wrestling, but Roman Reigns remains committed to honoring his father’s legacy. Fans are eagerly awaiting the return of The Tribal Chief to WWE television. The current storyline involving The Bloodline has seen Reigns temporarily ousted from his position as the Head of the Table, and his return promises to shake up the ongoing narrative.

Stay tuned as Roman Reigns’ comeback could bring dramatic changes to WWE and the fate of The Bloodline.
