The legacy31: Yokozuna
Belonging to one of the great wrestling families, The Anoa'i wrestling family, with The Rock, Rikishi, Umaga, Rosey, Samu and Manu for his cousins, he had a illustrious career from and a wonderful push in WWF where he pinned two former legends and then furture hall of fame faces in Hitman and Hogan in two consecutive pay-per-views.
Debuting in 1992 in WWF though he had a ten year career before that in AWA retiring Greg Gagne, he received a dream push winning the royal rumble within months using the title shot received to win the WWF championship from Bret Hart losing it in minutes to Hogan (not sure who booked it so silly, esp with Hitman signalling Hogan to come in and fix stuff) before taking it back from him in the next PPV effectively ending Hogan's WWF career in kayfabe as he did not return till 9 years hence. Then he had a great angle working with Lex Luger for a body slam challenge followed by "killing" Undertaker being central to his deadman turn. He then went on to defend the title against the next Royal Rumble winners Bret Hart and Luger losing it finally to Bret Hart. He went on to feud with the returning Taker losing to him and also winning the tag titles with Owen Hart after which his push slowly disappeared proportional to increase in weight.
A dream run from 1992 to 1996 for four years around the main event scene and being the first Samoan to win the WWF world title, how do you see his legacy in totality of his career?
