View Full Version : Greatest Samoan Wrestler that isn't The Rock?

WHO IS IT?

Any era, any time. I feel like a lot of these guys were great shit and most of them did not get any super title runs. I was thinking about this when I slit my wrists when the Uso's stopped showing up on my television.

I have heard and read but can not confirm that Jimmy Snooka was actually very close to being the top face in the WWE, along with Hogan or instead of Hogan.
(^Anyone know anything about that?)

Thoughts?

Pictures of vaginas and mammories?

Also I use the term "greatest" very loosely. Can be because you liked their ring work, their gimmick, their look, style, etc.

Yokozuna. Multiple time WWF Champion. Main evented back-to-back Manias. Won the '93 Rumble. Went over Hogan clean in his last match before he jumped to WCW.

And Snuka was from Fiji, wasn't he?

yea, Yoko. didn't even think of Yoko as Somaon until you said it. Was going to say Umaga because he had a pretty good run.

Yes. And don't count Haku/Meng and Barbarian either, because they're Tongan.

maybe RB meant to ask who was the greatest Polynesian wrestler. He probably thought all Samoans were Polynesian. The list for Samoan wrestlers is short

If we're going by Polynesians, I'll say Supafly

I'll give you the rest, Yoko was quite awesome... but CLEAN? Wasn't there a little matter of a camera blowing up in Hogan's face?

True. But, to be fair, that was about as "clean" as anyone has ever gone over Hogan.

Yeah my fault, I don't necessarily mean "Samoans," it's a term I use loosely to mean anyone from any island or any guy that looks Samoan.

yep.

In all seriousness... yeah I really just remember Rikishi and Umaga... and Samoa Joe...

Uuuuummmmagggggggaaaaaaa

Yokozuna was really, really shit.

When he was mobile, Yokozuna did have some good matches.

In fact the match he had with Vader (the match before he got sent to fat camp and wasn't nearly as mobile as he had been) is an incredible big man match for what it was. And it wasn't all Vader bouncing off of him. His Urinage (sp?) and Samoan Drop on Vader were both impressive looking. And his selling of the leg injury was downright bone-chilling.

I would honestly say Yoko or Fatu.

A guy that looks Samoan......... like Joanie Laurer circa 1999?
