Following in the footsteps of his father, Samu, Lance Anoa’i looks to make a big splash in MLW when he debuts on March 8th in Orlando at Gilt Nightclub.
Lance becomes the first second generation wrestler to compete in MLW, with his father Samu competing in MLW from 2002-04 as part of the Samoan Island Tribe with Mana and Ekmo Fatu (Umaga).
A member of the Samoan dynasty which includes the likes of the Wild Samoans, High Chief Peter Maivia, The Rock, Umaga, the Usos, the Samoan Swat Team and many others, Anoa’i has big sandals to fill but prefers to prove it with his in-ring game and rejects the typical hype and pageantry accompanying such a newcomer.
Lance is no stranger to the ring, having competed for his father’s WXW C4 promotion since a young teenager.
“I remember seeing Lance doing moonsaults when he was 5 years old – and he would hit a hell of a moonsault even back then,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “His nickname ‘The Future’ is accurate. Lance Anoa’i is a natural with a bright future in this sport.”
Lance’s opponent on March 8th will be announced shortly.
