Matt Anoa’i, better known to WWE fans as Rosey, has passed away at the age of 47.
Rosey was one-half of the tag team 3-Minute Warning on RAW back in 2002. After the team split, Rosey entered into a comedic team with The Hurricane where he became a “super hero in training” and captured WWE Tag Team gold.
The son of Wild Samoan Sika, Matt was the older brother of current WWE superstar Roman Reigns.
The Anoa’i family shared the following statement to WWE.com:
“The Anoa’i family is mourning the loss of Sika’s son, Matt aka Rosey, due to an untimely death.
We want to let his fans know that he loved them and the wrestling world so much. In his passing, he left three beautiful young children and a heartbroken family. Please respect the privacy of his children and family as they mourn the loss of this kind, loving, gentle man, who was a father, son, brother and a superhero to us all.
Our family appreciates your prayers and continued support during this very difficult time.”
On behalf of everyone at TVE, our thoughts and prayers are with the Anoa’i family and Matt’s friends.
