Zilla Fatu, the son of the late Umaga, has departed from Reality of Wrestling, and he has shed light on the reasons behind his departure.
Fatu marked his professional wrestling debut in July, achieving a victory in his very first match by executing his father’s iconic move.
Notably, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, who is affiliated with Reality of Wrestling, disclosed that Fatu had parted ways with the promotion. In an interview with Apples & Grapes Media, the son of the former WWE star clarified that his decision to leave stemmed from a divergence in his vision for his wrestling future compared to Booker T’s ideas.
“It’s all love. It’s all respect. I still want to see Booker T and his school thrive. For me, it was just my vision was different. Me and Book, we already had a conversation and some things can’t work. My vision and his vision, what he had lined up, it just didn’t connect. We parted ways, respectfully, we’re still on good terms.

It’s not like, ‘I don’t want to see you win no more.’ It’s all love. I have to go this way, he has to go this way. Everybody has to understand that everybody has different ways to the top. That’s all I can speak on that. I still want to see them win. Shoutout to Book, shoutout to Reality of Wrestling, if you’re in Houston, go tap in with them. I appreciate Book and everything his school did for me. I’m so grateful for the trainers and individuals that are over there. It was definitely a friendly and structured environment.”
