The Evolution Of Sivi Afi




From low-carder to jobber to "High Chief"... (at least for one match)



Sivi Afi AKA Siva Afi started out as a successful main-eventer/mid-carder in the independent circuit. In Honolulu, Hawaii, 1985, he wrestled Ric Flair to a one hour time limit draw for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in front of 20,000 people...  A year later, in the WWF, he was squashed by Randy "Macho Man" Savage under 2 minutes on national TV. 

Thanks to his national TV exposure as a pure jobber in the WWF, he ended up a jobber in other local wrestling promotions.

Sivi Afi makes his WWF debut on January 28, 1986 at Championship Wrestling.  Billed as "Superfly" Afi, the cousin of Jimmy Snuka, Sivi Afi defeated the Gladiator (winless jobber Rick Hunter) in a very boring match.

With the departure of the ultra-popular Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka.  The WWF was searching for somebody to fill the void.  So with his ressemblance to the original one, Sivi Afi was supposed to be the "new" Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka.  In order to fit the billing, the future Third Islander, High Chief Afi got an ultra-mega-fucking-painful and not too discreet traditional Samoa knees up-to-waist tattoo. But it was all for nothing, since his adventure as the High Chief Afi lasted nothing more than a 3-man tag team match. So he gets this fuckin' tattoo for nothing
