WWE

Using the ring name of Rosey, Anoa'i made his WWE debut on the July 22, 2002 episode of Raw with Ekmo (renamed Jamal) as 3-Minute Warning. They were "hired" as Eric Bischoff's assailants, attacking random wrestlers each week, at the orders of Bischoff. The most notable events during this gimmick came when they attacked two lesbians, after they began to bore Bischoff, and when they crashed Billy Gunn and Chuck Palumbo's wedding. Both events drew criticism from gay & lesbian rights groups. After the wedding, Rico jumped from SmackDown! to RAW to manage the team. In June 2003, Jamal was fired from WWE, and Rosey was forced into a singles program. July 22 is the 203rd day of the year (204th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Super Heroes, Hurricane and (the S.H.I.T.) Rosey

Later in 2003, The Hurricane "discovered" Rosey's potential as a superhero, and christened him "Rosey, the Super Hero in Training" (or the S.H.I.T.). In one memorable promo, he helped an old lady across the street, but when he revealed himself as "the S.H.I.T.", she started hitting him with her purse for using foul language. On the July 19, 2004 episode of RAW, Rosey appeared with a new costume, seemingly graduated to a full superhero. On May 1, 2005, at Backlash Hurricane and Rosey defeated La Résistance in the finals of a Tag Team Turmoil match to win the World Tag Team Championship. They were joined for a short while by Stacy Keibler, who they referred to as Super Stacy. However, Stacy was then drafted to SmackDown. On September 5, 2005 Rosey and The Hurricane were defeated by Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch, during their debut match on Monday Night RAW. This match earned the pair a title shot at WWE Unforgiven. During the title match, Murdoch delivered an elevated DDT on Hurricane to the outside. The DDT caused Hurricane to suffer a "stinger" (in Kayfabe) and allowed Cade & Murdoch to beat the injured Hurricane later in the match, to win the World Tag Team Titles from him, and Rosey.

The loss of the titles eventually brought the team to an end, as they began a losing streak caused by Hurricane's injuries. During the October 17, 2005 episode of RAW, Hurricane was assaulted by Kurt Angle at the request of Vince McMahon, after the beating footage was shown of Hurricane ripping off his mask and striking Rosey (who had come to the ring to his aid). The next week Hurricane no-showed a World Tag Team Title match leaving Rosey to face the champions alone. During the match, The Hurricane (out of costume) appeared at the top of the entrance ramp; going now by his real name, Gregory Helms watched as Rosey was double teamed and defeated.

Shortly after this turmoil, Jamal was rehired by WWE and he and Rosey were scheduled to reunite 3-Minute Warning.
