Zilla Fatu claimed that his father Umaga didn't want any of his children to get involved in wrestling
Zilla Fatu recently revealed that his father, Umaga, didn't want any of his children to enter the wrestling business.
Speaking in a recent interview, he recalled what his father previously told his children about staying away from the professional wrestling industry. Fatu said:
"I don't know if you or anybody else know, my dad did not want none of his kids into wrestling. My dad, that was a no, like he used to tell us, 'hey, you guys are not going wrestling,"
Fatu is still in the early days of his professional wrestling career. Meanwhile, several members of his family tree have established themselves as top stars in the industry.
The biggest name out of them all is obviously Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief is the leader of The Bloodline in WWE, and the group also consists of Anoa'i family members Solo Sikoa and Jey Uso.
Jimmy Uso was recently kicked out of The Bloodline, courtesy of Sikoa, who hit the former with a Samoan Spike on SmackDown.
