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.

He wasn't very good and if it weren't for the Rock he would be rightfully forgotten.

High Chief also almost died from ink poisoning due to the rushing and the unsafe environment back then. The guy was insanely tough to even think of doing it.
Didn't Rock say High Chief's tattoo had a special meaning behind it? Something about a Samoan tribe?

I guess it goes something like below and a correction in the post when I said needle. It is supposed to be done with a shark's tooth and this tattoo signifies that you are a chief of a tribe if I am not mistaken.



Rock316AE I read somewhere that Rock was a high chief too now. Does he have the extensive lower body tattoo as well?

Edit: P.S: No Painkillers are to be used either during the process.

I don't know about getting it on my ass.


And damn, that looks painful. I have tattoos covering the entire backs of my hands and that worst pain I ever felt. I got it "somewhere" and a staple was used. Can only imagine what that's like.

Internet fans seem to be so disrespectful, I am glad there are still some who respect the wrestlers who paved the way.

Watched a Legends of Wrestling Roundtable the other day and Pat Patterson said how Maivia was a big draw in California and when he was wrestling the Samoans were very rowdy. And just to pose a question, is the Anoa'i family the greatest wrestling family of all time? I know the Maivia line biologically isn't part of it, but they have been put in it.

In 2050,these are the people who will be remembered:

Hulk Hogan
Ric Flair
Bret Hart
Shawn Michaels
Undertaker
Stone Cold
Rock
HHH
John Cena


People like Savage, Warrior,Sting,Foley,Batista,Orton etc would come up in list as forgotten legends

Foley, Sting, and Savage (an argument could even very easily be made for Warrior) are all more memorable, and recognized (meaning walk up and down the street and ask random people if they know who these wrestlers are and they will say yes) many times over more than bret hart or HBK. even trips and Cena realistically are nowhere near as notable.

Although I disagree with your point entirely. If what you're saying was true today there would be a lot of names that are mentioned quite frequently on wrestling forums like this one that nobody would know.



As for the High Chief, he was a patriarch of one of the most successful and memorable wrestling families in the history of the business. As a wrestler he was great for his time, he knew how to tell a story and could keep the fans entertained. In 50 years.. it all depends. If his family tree keeps filling up roster spots in wrestling companies then we may still be talking about him as a patriarch of a great wrestling family in 2062

And read my post, kid. I gave my opinion on this thread and that was people like you shouldn't come in them, especially when you just construct a post with a half ass sentence to describe the subject and just make an extension of the GOAT.


I would appreciate it if you refrain from entering threads like this, that have nothing to do with the majority of the shit you originally posted. Much appreciated as these classic threads don't get much love anyway and ecnd up with people like you arguing over GOAT.

I asked nicely, please at least contribute to this thread. Further problem, PM me. Let's not take OP's thread any further off track because some people actually care about wrestling history and know a legend for doing more than having a successful grandson.

I'm done.

Wow, tried to give you props for this but i cant.... apparently i have to spread this around.

I do think Mavia's legacy has more shine because of the Rock. But that should not take away from him having legend status. Heck the guy is a legend and wreslted all over the world.

I thought he was a much better heel.
