Over the years, in fact, in the WWE rings we have seen characters of the caliber of Afa & Sika, the Usos, Yokozuna, Rikishi, Umaga, The Rock, Nia Jax, Roman Reigns and many other athletes who descend from the huge family tree of the Anoa'i, who have lent the world of discipline many prominent talents, who for the most part have done at least one stint in the McMahon rings, to then be successful or be released.
Two of these talents that WWE Universe fans will surely remember the most are undoubtedly Rikishi and Umaga, blood brothers who descend from the married couple formed by Vera Anoa'i and Solofa Fatu and who for years fought in the McMahon rings at great levels, even winning important matches and titles in the Stamford rings.
Unfortunately for his fans and family, however, Umaga died at the age of only 36, in 2009, of a heart attack due to taking various drugs, which stopped his heart.
