Name: Jacob Fatu
Aerial: Much like the first time I saw Vader do a moonsault, I was equally blown away to see Fatu springboard moonsault or leap from the top of the cage. He has unreal athletic ability for a man of his size. His highlight reel of aerial expertise will surely draw some eyes.
Appearance: He looks exactly like you’d expect someone going by the “Samoan werewolf” would look, which is tough and dangerous. He has above-average size and good facials and his ring attire is fitting for his gimmick.
Charisma: I haven’t heard much of him on the mic, which is not surprising since he’s mostly been booked as a monster. I don’t expect him to cut any fantastic promos, but he doesn’t need to. Working with a manager or as part of a stable is probably the best route for him.
Power: Jacob has incredible strength. His stocky frame allows him to generate some impressive power and he’s not afraid to put it on display. I could see him struggling against larger opponents, but so far it hasn’t been an issue.
Technical: Currently, I haven’t seen Fatu display much technical wrestling. It doesn’t really fit with his character. However, based on his family history and his training, I have to believe that he has it in his back pocket for when he needs it.
Overview: Jacob Fatu is another example of someone who grew up around the wrestling business and is now excelling in it. He belongs to the famed Anoa’i family which has produced wrestling greats such as the Usos, Rikishi, Roman Reigns, Yokozuna and so on. He has good size and outstanding athletic ability. The Samoan tradition and legacy is something that should always be a part of professional wrestling and Jacob seems primed to carry on the tradition.
