WWE News: Rikishi comments on his sons who debuted as a new tag team on WWE Raw, and the death of Umaga
Rikishi commented on his Jimmy and Jules Uso (a/k/a Jonathan and Joshua Fatu) a short time before they were called up from developmental and debuted on Monday's Raw. "What I told my boys was, 'You guys have a lot of shoes to fill, but do what you feel comfortable with. Win the fans, win the match,'" Rikishi said. "They're seeing why daddy walks through the door limping, don't want to throw the football, don't want to play basketball. But they're going to find out first-hand."
Rikishi also commented on the death of Umaga. "The Umaga character has touched everybody, good or bad," he said. "It's something that's out of our hands. You never want it to happen to you personally. I'm very grateful that I had the last part of his life to spend with him in Australia. We had a heart to heart talk. We hadn't seen each other in a while. With that note, everything was fantastic. So my heart is full, my heart is full. But I can only say this, I'm very sorry for the loss of professional wrestling, such a good wrestler." To read the full interview, visit Slam Wrestling.
Powell's POV: Rikishi also spoke about the thing he misses most about working for WWE, and why his family has been so successful in the pro wrestling industry.
