Afa, full name Afa Amituana'i 'Arthur' Anoa'i, is a WWE legend and one half of the Wild Samoans tag team with his brother, Sika. The duo's impact on wrestling goes far beyond due to their family and the many names within that have launched to superstardom. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and current WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns are both part og the illustrious wrestling clan.

He last appeared in WWE alongside his brother to mark the close of Hell in a Cell 2020, naming Reigns as the Tribal Chief and cementing his current historic run forever. On Sunday a video of Anoa'i was posted showing that he was heading home and ready to watch football, cheering on the 49ers.

The hospital stay came on the heels of a pair of heart procedures in December 2023. "Yesterday Afa had two exploratory heart procedures to check his valves," a previous post on the legend's Facebook read. "In his own words: 'I kicked out before the 1!' He is home and doing very well. Nothing keeps a Wild Samoan down! His follow up appointment is on the 20th to go over next steps. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he may need a valve replacement...Afa was joking with and signing autographs for the hospital staff."

Anoa'i is 81 years old and continues to own the World Xtreme Wrestling promotion, while also training wrestlers at the Wild Samoan Training Center. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007 alongside his brother and tag-team partner.
