WWE has their sights set on signing another top independent star. This time, they are looking at another member of the legendary Anoa’i family.
As noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is interested in Jacob Fatu. Everyone who is paying attention knows that he will be a big star. Dave Meltzer noted that people in AEW and WWE are aware of his star potential.
Fatu is scheduled to wrestle Tom Lawlor for the MLW World Title at their July 6th show in Chicago where they are expected to draw more than 2,000 fans.
Fatu was trained by his uncle Rikishi and he is the son of Tama/The Tonga Kid (from The Islanders tag team). He is a cousin of The Usos and the nephew of the late Umaga.
