About Sika Anoaʻi in brief
Leati Sika Anoa’i Amituana’i is an American Samoan retired professional wrestler. He is best known as one-half of the tag team The Wild Samoans with his brother Afa. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer in 2012. He also wrestled as a singles wrestler, unsuccessfully challenging Bob Backlund for the WWF Championship in March 1980. He and his brother gained notoriety due to their large, wild afros, sarongs, and habit of wrestling barefoot and eating raw fish in the ring. The brothers also toured Japan with New Japan Pro-Wrestling in 1981 and 1982, performing as ‘The Samoan #1’ and ‘TheSamoan #2’ in the New Year Golden Series. They also competed in the Madison Square Garden Tag League in November and December 1981, competing against Antonio Inoki and Seiji Sakaguchi.
In March 1982, they began competing for the Atlanta, Georgia-based promotion Georgia Championship Wrestling, where they were managed by Sonny King. They won the NWA National Tag Team Championship for several months, vacating it in December 1982 to return to the WWF in January 1983. On November 15, 1983, they lost the championship for a third time, defeating Chief Strongbow Jules Strongbow and Jay Strongbow. After splitting from Lou Albano, they were unable to regain the championship on several occasions. The WildSamoans’ reign ended when they lost to Soul Patrol after he accidentally hit Afa with a chair.
