• Umaga’s Son Plans To Start Wrestling After Getting Off Parole This Year

In December 2022, late WWE Veteran Umaga’s son Zilla Fatu (age 22) signed up for wrestling training at Booker T’s “Reality Of Wrestling”.

After hearing this news, The Usos teased that Zilla could be the next member of The Bloodline by tweeting the following:

“He’s up next.”

During an interview with Muscle Man Malcolm, Zilla talked about wanting to enter the world of professional wrestling.

Below are the highlights:

On wanting to be a pro-wrestler:

“To be honest, when I was in prison, I really didn’t have it on my mind, but when I came home and I saw that my family was on top of the business, I’m thinking, why not?

I don’t know if you know or anybody else knows, but my dad didn’t want none of us to do wrestling, like at all. So that was kind of hard going against what my dad’s wishes were.”

On his goal for 2023:

“Really, just to get off parole faster. I don’t know if you know or anybody else knows, I am on parole right now, so that’s a big thing because I heard we can get off parole faster. That’s what I’m working on right now.

There’s a whole bunch of paperwork. It’s a big process I have to go through and you know, obviously, I got to stay out of trouble and show them that I’m involved with the community. Yeah, just try to stay positive and not try to go down the bad route.”

On signing up with Booker T’s school:

“It’s in Houston. I’m on parole, so I can’t leave the state. But most importantly, he’s a really close friend to the family.

Before my dad was Umaga, my dad been knowing Booker since then, so that’s a long time. It was an easy choice for me to choose. When I came home, and then I had that discussion with Booker two months after being home, we talked about it and he was just like, ‘Just focus on your parole stuff first.’

When I got some of my parole classes, because when you’re on parole, you have to do certain classes and you have to graduate from them. I’m very happy that I successfully completed my classes on parole.

That’s when I hit Booker up, and I was like, ‘I’m ready.’ He was like, ‘Man, pull up.'”
