Default Re: Forgotten Legends90: High Chief Peter Maivia

The story of his tattoo according to Superstar Billy Graham was that he had them done in three days time in an extremely difficult process of using hammer and needle with ink which he found it difficult even to watch. Coming from a "student" of Maivia, it must have been true.

Felt great to hear when Rock went through the same process to honor his heritage, something rare today when the easy way out is preferred.

He along with Bobo Brazil and Mildred Burke will be remembered as pioneers who opened the gates to Samoan/Polynesian, Afro-american and women in pro-wrestling respectively.
