Son Of Umaga Begins Pro Wrestling Training

Zilla Fatu will begin training at Booker T's wrestling school

The son of the late Umaga (Edward Fatu) is set to being his professional wrestling journey. 

The Reality of Wrestling training school tweeted out a picture of their 'newest member' Zilla Fatu, noting that his father was a part of Reality of Wrestling.

Reality of Wrestling was founded by two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T in 2005. Umaga made a surprise appearance on a ROW show in 2008, posing with his nephews (and then-ROW Tag Team Champions) Jimmy and Jey Uso.

Part of the Anoa'i wrestling family dynasty, Umaga was the younger brother of The Tonga Kid and Rikishi. His mother Vera was the sister of the Wild Samoans (Afa and Sika).

Umaga wrestled for WWE between 2001 and 2003 as Three Minute Warning member Jamal, before his second run as the Samoan Bulldozer between 2006 and 2009. 

A former WWE Intercontinental Champion, Umaga passed away from a heart attack on December 4, 2009. He was 36 years old. 

Umaga's nephew Solo Sikoa paid tribute to him by using the Samoan Spike on this past Monday's episode of Raw.
