NWA Starrcade 1989 (7072 words)
The tag teams were Doom (Butch Reed and Ron Simmons), The Wild Samoans (who were subbing for the injured Sky Scrapers), The Steiners, and The Road Warriors.
As to the match itself, as stated, the Wild Samoans aren't really wrestlers, although I will admit some parts of the match were entertaining with their theatrics.
With the combination of The Wild Samoans being last minute replacements, and the fatigue of the wrestlers, the match never clicked.
Rodney Anoai - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2533 words)
Although the "Yokozuna" character was portrayed as Japanese, Anoai was of Samoan origin and had never competed as an actual sumotori.
His uncles were the Wild Samoans, Afa and Sika, who trained him at an early age in the family business.
He was managed by Sheik Adnan El Kassey, wrestling as a Samoan superstar.
