From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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", a connection that continued with Afa and Sika, who regard Peter as their uncle. Peter married [1 ] 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. Dwayne Johnson also has a nephew named Nimantha Jayasineghe, [ who is the son of Talisua Fuavai. Peter's youngest son Toa is in training to wrestle and his oldest son Peter Fanene, Jr. is in the real estate business. ] citation needed

Samoan Gangstas [ edit ]
Samoan Gangstas was a
tag team in the independent promotion World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW). The tag team consisted of members from the Anoa'i family. [4 ] [2 ] [3 ]
Samoan Gangstas was a tag team made up of cousins
Matt E. Smalls and Sweet Sammy Silk (Matt and Samu Anoa'i). Their tag team was formed in 1997 in WXW, the promotion of one half of the [5 ] Wild Samoans, Afa Anoaʻi, who is also Samu's father. The duo received success in WXW in the tag team division. On June 24, they won their first [4 ] WXW Tag Team Championship by beating Love Connection (Sweet Daddy Jay Love and Georgie Love). However, they were temporarily suspended and the title was declared vacant. [4 ] 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. [6 ] [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 ] 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 [7 ] 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.
