Jump to: navigation, search

The Anoa'i Family, originating from American Samoa, is a family of professional wrestlers. Family members have comprised several tag teams and stables within a variety of promotions.

In addition, Reverend Anoa'i Amituana'i and Peter Maivia were "blood brothers",[1] a connection that continued with Afa and Sika, who regard Peter as their uncle. Peter married Ofelia "Lia" Fuataga, who already had a daughter named Feagaimaleata (Ata), whom he adopted and raised as his own. Ata married wrestler Rocky Johnson, and the couple became the parents of Dwayne Johnson, who wrestled under the names Rocky Maivia and The Rock, before establishing himself as an actor. Peter's youngest son Toa is in training to wrestle and his oldest son Peter Fanene, Jr. is in the real estate business.

Samoan Gangstas was a tag team in the independent promotion World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW).[4] The tag team consisted of members from the Anoa'i family.[2][3]

Samoan Gangstas was a tag team made up of cousins Matt E. Smalls and Sweet Sammy Silk (Matt and Samu Anoa'i).[5] Their tag team was formed in 1997 in WXW, the promotion of one half of the Wild Samoans, Afa Anoaʻi, who is also Samu's father. The duo received success in WXW in the tag team division.[4] On June 24, they won their first WXW Tag Team Championship by beating Love Connection (Sweet Daddy Jay Love and Georgie Love).[4] However, they were temporarily suspended and the title was declared vacant.[6] Matt was repackaged as Matty Smalls. They returned in the summer of 1997 and defeated Siberian Express (The Mad Russian and Russian Eliminator), on September 17 to win their second WXW Tag Team Championship.[4][7]

Problems began between Smalls and Smooth. The two partners began feuding with each other and could not focus properly on their tag title. On March 27, 1998, Smooth defeated Smalls in a Loser Leaves Town match. As a result of losing this match, Smalls was forced to leave the promotion.[4][7] He left WXW while Smooth focused on a singles career. After a short while, Smalls returned to WXW and the two partners reunited again as Samoan Gangstas and began teaming in the tag team division. They feuded with several tag teams in WXW and focused to regain the WXW Tag Team Championship. However, due to their family disputes and problems with each other, they did not take part in the tournament for the vacated tag title, and instead feuded with each other. Samoan Gangstas feuded with each other after their splitting until Smalls left WXW and began wrestling as Kimo. He began teaming with Ekmo as The Island Boyz and the duo worked in Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling (FMW) before signing with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and working in its developmental territories.

Championships and accomplishments[edit]

The Sons of Samoa[edit]

The Sons of Samoa are a tag team currently wrestling in the Puerto Rican wrestling promotion World Wrestling Council and WXW. The team consists of Afa Jr. and L.A. Smooth (Lloyd).

The team was formed at WXW in 1998, briefly as a stable with Samu (Samula). The team reformed in April 2009 at a WXW show with Afa Jr. and L.A. Smooth. In 2013, they began wrestling at the WWC promotion in Puerto Rico. At Euphoria 2013, they lost to Thunder and Lightning. They won the WWC World Tag Team Championship from Thunder and Lightning on February 9, before losing the titles back to Thunder and Lightning on March 30 at Camino a la Gloria. However, they won the titles on June 29, 2013, at Summer Madness.

Main article: The Usos

The Usos (born August 22, 1985) are an American professional wrestling tag team consisting of twin brothers Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso, who appear in WWE where they are former 1 time WWE Tag Team Champions. The pair were previously managed by Tamina Snuka and are one time FCW Florida Tag Team Champions

Jimmy (real name Jonathan Solofa Fatu) and Jey (real name Joshua Samuel Fatu) are the sons of Solofa Fatu, better known as Rikishi, nephews of the late Umaga and Sam The Tonga Kid and are part of the Anoa'i family. As part of the family they are also the cousins of fellow WWE superstars Roman Reigns and The Rock, as well as the late Yokozuna.

On the February 14th 2014 edition of SmackDown, The Usos along with Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated the Outlaws and Ryback and Curtis Axel when Jimmy Uso pinned Road Dogg. The Usos received a tag title shot at the Elimination Chamber PPV against the New Age Outlaws but were once again unsuccessful. After quickly defeating the Outlaws in a non-title match the previous week, The Usos received another title match on the March 3 episode of Raw against the Outlaws, and The Usos were finally successful, winning the titles, their first ones in WWE. The next night on Main Event, The Usos would successfully defend their titles against Los Matadores. At WrestleMania XXX, The Usos successfully defended their titles in a Fatal Four Way Elimination match against Ryback & Curtis Axel, The Real Americans, and Los Matadores. The next night on Raw, The Usos again defended the titles against the team of Batista and Randy Orton. Both teams were counted out and The Usos were assaulted by Orton and Batista outside the ring At Night of Champions the Usos would lose to Gold & Stardust ending their first reign as tag team champions.
