Roman Reigns’ relative Lance Anoa’i discussed wanting to leave MLW for AEW, WWE, or TNA in a new Wrestling News interview.
“I’ve missed a few opportunities being with MLW. That one on A&E. I missed the possibility of being on the Tribal Court they were doing, bringing in the whole family. I missed that opportunity. Now I can do it all. I can be at extra work. I can be at tryouts. Like nothing is stopping me now, so I’m just ready to go.”
“So the Tribal Court, they wanted a lot of us. They asked my grandfather, my dad, my uncles, me, Jacob, they wanted us all and unfortunately, you know, due to our contracts and everything, we weren’t able to, but that’s okay, you know. We weren’t able to and we just carried on and now we just don’t know man. Time will tell. Impact looks very strong right now. In January they become TNA again. AEW looks awesome. You just you just never know. Hey, man, that’s the life of the freedom.”
He said MLW denied him appearing in WWE with The Bloodline, “We pitched that point and we got shut down. We don’t know why. You know, it is what it is. Like, you know we just ran with it. They even did the A&E special, like filming my whole family at our family reunion, and we weren’t allowed to be in any of it. So you know, there’s just a few missed opportunities and hopefully, it just comes right back around and we’ll be able to, everybody will be able to see how big our family is still growing. I’m not the only one left. There’s still a lot of guys. Jacob Fatu is my cousin. His brother, Journey. Solo is already in there, man. Zilla Fatu, who’s Umaga’s son. We’re just all just going and we’re all young and hungry and ready to achieve and follow our footsteps, our family’s footsteps, and just keep the Bloodline going.”
