All the way from Samoa we have one of the greatest wrestling family trees ever.
This family has given us multiple singles wrestlers and some Tag Teams.
Peter Maivia was the first to debut, in 1962, hew mainly wrestled for the NWA, winning multiple titles in their promotions throughout the pacific coast and ocean. He was diagnosed with cancer in 1981 and died a year later.
Rocky Johnson was the next to debut, in 1964 and didn't retire until 1991. He's most known for working in the NWA and WWE. He won a lot of championships in the NWA both in singles and Tag Team competition, but was only able to win a Tag Team championship (with Tony Atlas) during his stance in the WWE.
The next debut took place in the following decade, as Afa Anoa'i debuted in 1971. His brother Sika would debut in 1974 and together they would be known as the Wild Samoans.
They are best known for their time in the NWA and the WWF, but they also wrestled for some minor promotions. Trained by Peter Maivia, this Tag Team went on to win 21 different championships. They disbanded in the 90's.
The 80's saw a lot of this family, with six more debuts.
Samu in 1980 was the first of them. He had success in the lesser promotions, but he only shined in Tag Teams in the bigger ones.
Sam Fatu, The Tonga Kid, was next, debuting in 1983. Wrestling for the WWF, WCCW, AWA and WCW, he had a good career, but not as successful as other members of his family.
The next member of this family to make his debut is someone most o us know, Rodney Anoa'i, better known as Yokozuna. He debuted in 1984 and worked for the AWA before signing with the WWE. There he went on to be a two time WWWE and the Tag Team Champion. He died in 2000 due to fluid in his lungs.
Next is also a guy we know very well, Solofa Fatu Jr., better known as Rikishi. He debuted in 1985. Best known for his time in the WWE where he won the Intercontinental Championship once and the Tag Team championships thrice.
Lloyd Anoa'i, better known as L.A. Smooth, debuted next, in 1987. He had a decent career, but never made it into the big leagues.
Gary Albright debuted next, in 1988, he was married to Monica Anoa'i, which makes him part of the family. He had a decent career in Canada, before going to Japan, winning Tag Team Championships in both countries. He died in 2000 just after a match, with heart attack listed as the official cause of death.
1995 was a great year for this family, with three members making their debut.
Matt Anoa'i was in the WWE for a short time (2002-2006), and has had a better career in the independent circuit, where he still wrestles.
Eddie Fatu, better known as Umaga, also debuted in 1995. Best known for his time in the WWE, he also had a fair amount of success in other promotions he worked for. He died in 2009 after suffering two heart attacks. The official cause of death was acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol and diazepam.
The other member of this family who debuted in 1995, is also the most well known of them all. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Before going to Hollywood to do movies, he spent most of his career in the WWE, winning a Royal Rumble (2000), two Intercontinental Championships, five Tag Team championships and nine World Championships. He's also the sixth triple crown champion.
The last member of the family to debut in the 90's was Afa Anoa'i Jr, also known as Manu. He debuted in 1998. He had a short stunt with the WWE (2006-2009), but has had more success in the independent circuit.
Also in the 90's this family gave us two other Tag Teams, 3-Minute Warning and the Samoan Gangstas.
Eddie Fatu and Matt Anoa'i formed the 3-Minute Warning, maybe best known for their time in the WWE, they didn't win any championship there, but were 5 time Tag Team Champions in lesser promotions. The team was formed in 1996 and disbanded in 2003
L.A. Smooth and Matt Anoa'i were the Samoan Gangstas, they mainly worked for their family's promotion, World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW). Formed in 1997 they were only together for a year disbanding in 1998.
Reno Anoa'i debuted in 2002. He's had a short career, mainly working for his family's promotions outside the US. He was the first Nu Wrestling Evolution World Heavyweight Champion.
The latest Tag Team this family has given us is the Usos, who before joining the WWE had a stunt in the WXW.
And the last member of this family to debut has been Joe Anoa'i, who did it a year ago (2010). He is currently under contract with the WWE in it's developmental territory, FCW.
