It's a family I've always wondered just how far their lineage goes. So I decided to look p their family tree. Now this doesn't include members who are not involved in wrestling, just those ones who are. I didn't realise just how far it goes.
OK so i starts with Leah Maivia, a woman promoter, who had worked closely with WWE over the years. She passed away in 2008.
She married High Chief Peter Maivia.
Rocky Johnson married his daughter, Ata. Hence getting involved in the Family, and producing son The Rock.
Peter Maivia was a relative of the Anoa'i Family (blood brothers), and Toale and Amituanai had 6 children, of which two were Afa and Sika the Wild Samoans.
Afa married Lynn who had 5 children together, Samula who became Samu, Afa Jr a.k.a Manu, Llyod who goes by the name of L.A. Smooth, Lynn and Monica. Monica later married Gary Albright, and had 3 children.
Tumuna, another of the 6 children, had son Reno, who goes by the name of Black Pearl on the independant cicuit.
Junior Anoa'i had a son named Rodney who later became known as Yokozuna.
Sika married Patricia and together had 2 children, Matt and Joe. Matt is former WWE star Rosey and Joe is currently in FCW named Roman Leakee.
Afoa had no children, but the final child Vera married Solofa Fatu.
Together they had 3 children: Sam, Eddie and Solofa Fatu Jr. Under wrestling named Tama, Umaga and Rikishi respectively.
Rikishi later married Talisua Fuavai, who in turn produced 5 more children, 2 of which are currently in WWE, Johnathon and Joshua, Jimmy and Jey Uso.
So yeah I didn't realise the blood line was so huge, and if you read this thanks for your time
