A third-generation wrestler, Lance Anoa’i is the latest chapter of storied Samoan dynasty.
The son of Samoan SWAT Team founding member Samu, grandson of Afa and cousin of The Rock, Lance Anoa’i is a blend of agility and innovation.
Going to MLW fight cards as a child watching his father and uncles compete as the Samoan Island Tribe, Lance aspired to join them one day. That day has come.
Lance made his MLW debut in 2018 in the Battle Riot and returned to the league in 2022 as part of the new era Samoan SWAT Team alongside Jacob Fatu and Juicy Finau.
The strategist for the SST’s matches, Anoa’i is the laid back, cerebral combatant of the trio. Respected for his smooth in-ring skills, Anoa’i can go from grappling to hitting thriller top rope attacks in a matter of seconds.
The Samoan Swat Team ravaged the tag team circuit in the 1980s and 90s with Samu and Fatu warring with the likes of the Steiner Bros., Von Erichs, Freebirds and countless others as they took the world by storm. Now, Lance and his cousins are in MLW to make their mark on the sport.
