Another member of the Fatu family is beginning his pro wrestling career. 

Booker T's Reality of Wrestling announced on Wednesday that Zilla Fatu, son of Umaga (Edward Fatu) has joined the school. Zilla is cousins with Jimmy & Jey Uso, Solo Sikoa, and Ava Raine. 

"Welcome the newest member of Reality Of Wrestling training school Zilla Fatu. His father Umaga was a part of Reality Of Wrestling and now he begins his own journey," ROW wrote on Twitter

Umaga passed away at the age of 36 due to a heart attack on December 4, 2009. With the 13-year anniversary of his passing having been the day before, Umaga's nephew Solo Sikoa paid tribute to his uncle on Raw by using the Samoan Spike and running hip attack. 

During his time in WWE, Umaga was a two-time Intercontinental Champion. He also represented Vince McMahon in the "Battle of the Billionaires" at WrestleMania 23. After Umaga was defeated by Bobby Lashley, McMahon was forced to shave his head.
