WWE Hall Of Famer and pro wrestling great Sika Anoa'i sadly passed away aged 79 on Tuesday, and tributes have been flooding in from all corners of the industry map for him. That includes Sika's son, Roman Reigns.

Roman led the way by paying tribute to his father with an emotional social media post. It it, Reigns said his dad "had a profound impact on [his] entire family and we are forever grateful for the foundation he built for us". Then, in a typically classy moment, Roman added: "There’s no way to fill the void left by his passing, but my sisters and I will do our best to represent him and his legacy".


The 'Tribal Chief' ended his message by saying: "Rest In Power, dad. We love you".

Other companies like AEW, TNA and MLW posted their own tributes too. They were soon joined by stars as varied as Natalya, Adam Pearce, Taz, Bully Ray and more.


Sika last appeared on-screen alongside old Wild Samoans partner Afa to celebrate with Roman after his win over Jey Uso at Hell In A Cell 2020. It was a poignant moment, and one Reigns will surely never forget.

All here at WhatCulture would like to send condolences to the entire Anoa'i family for their loss.
