Bloodline Family Member Has Died Suddenly

Roman Reigns’ father Sika has died.



The wrestling world mourns the loss of Sika Anoa’i, one half of the legendary tag team, The Wild Samoans, who passed away today. Known for his fierce persona and unyielding spirit in the ring, Sika’s contribution to professional wrestling has left an indelible mark on the industry and on the hearts of fans worldwide.

Born Leati Sika Anoa’i Amituana’i in American Samoa, Sika, alongside his brother Afa, began their wrestling career in the early 1970s. The brothers quickly gained recognition for their wild and untamed characters, epitomizing the fierce warrior spirit of their Samoan heritage. Their long, unkempt hair, bare feet, and traditional Samoan attire made them standout icons in a rapidly evolving wrestling scene.

The Wild Samoans became synonymous with tag team excellence, capturing the WWE (then WWF) Tag Team Championships on three occasions. Their matches were not just battles; they were spectacles of raw power and primal fury that captivated audiences. Sika’s imposing presence was complemented by an innate understanding of ring psychology, which made every match memorable.

Beyond the championships and accolades, Sika’s impact was profoundly felt in the way he helped pave the way for Polynesian wrestlers. Alongside Afa, Sika founded the Wild Samoan Training Facility, a wrestling school that has since nurtured a new generation of talent, including members of their own family. Sika’s legacy in professional wrestling extends through his son, Roman Reigns, a multiple-time WWE Champion and one of the industry’s biggest stars.

Sika’s career was marked by fierce loyalty to his family and his culture, traits that endeared him to fellow wrestlers and fans alike. His contributions to wrestling were recognized with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, an honor he shared with his brother Afa, celebrating their incredible journey and contributions to the sport.

As the wrestling community reflects on Sika’s storied career, it is his spirit, passion, and the profound respect he commanded both inside and outside the ring that will be most remembered. Sika Anoa’i was not just a wrestler; he was an embodiment of the warrior spirit, a loving father and mentor, and an icon of the sport.

As we say goodbye to this towering figure in professional wrestling, his legacy will undoubtedly continue to influence and inspire. Sika Anoa’i’s contributions to wrestling are etched in the annals of the sport, a testament to a life that was truly larger than life. Rest in power, Sika, your legacy will live on in the ring and in our hearts forever.
