Roman Reigns and Rikishi Attend Former WWE Star Rosey’s Funeral (Photos)


The funeral for Matthew “Matt” Tapunu’u Anoa’i (a/k/a Rosey) was held today in Pensacola, Florida.

The former WWE Superstar died last Monday at the age of 47.

No official cause of death was publicly released, but Anoa’i had suffered from congestive heart failure in recent years. A health scare involving atrial fibrillation had hospitalized him in 2014.

A member of the renowned Samoan wrestling family, Anoa’i was the son of WWE Hall of Famer Sika Anoa’i, one-half of The Wild Samoans tag team of the ‘70s and ‘80s, and older brother of Roman Reigns.

Here are photos of Reigns, Rikishi — Rosey’s cousin — and other members of the Anoa’i clan getting together for the funeral.
