Jacob Fatu comes from a long, glorious family line of Samoan wrestling superstars. His uncle is WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi. His father was the Tonga Kid who appeared in The Islanders tag team in the mid-1980s and then became part of the Samoan SWAT Team in WCW. Current WWE star tag team The Usos are his cousins.
However, Fatu is building his own name in pro wrestling. He has another opportunity to step into the spotlight on the MLW Saturday Night Superfight PPV, which Fite TV will live stream, when he defends his world heavyweight title vs. LA Park.
Fatu joined the MLW promotion earlier this year, and in July, he beat Tom Lawlor to take his belt. Now, he faces a challenge from LA Park, who has his own long history in wrestling. Formerly known as La Parka in WCW, the luchador, who’s in his early 50s and spends some time wrestling for Mexico-based promotion AAA, won the 40-man Battle Riot to earn his shot at the strap.
The Fatu-LA Park matchup is one of four titles on the line during Saturday’s event. Teddy Hart, who’s been the world middleweight champion for nearly a year, will defend his belt vs. Austin Aries. The tag team titles currently held by MJF and Richard Holliday will be on the line vs. Marshall and Ross Von Erich, and Alex Hammerstone—the national openweight champ—will face off vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr.
Considering this is the first attempt at a PPV for MLW, the promotion has done its best to put on what should be a packed card filled with action and recognizable names at a relatively low price point.
“This is a chance for MLW to make a statement,” MLW creator Court Bauer told Sports Illustrated in July. “We want to give value to our fans.”
