    Rosey (Matt Anoa'i) Passes Away at 47

    WWE is saddened to learn that Matt Anoa’i, known to fans as Rosey, has passed away at age 47. The son of WWE Hall of Famer Sika and older brother of WWE Superstar Roman Reigns, Rosey grew up in the legendary Anoa’i wrestling dynasty.

    He debuted in 2002 alongside his cousin Jamal as part of 3-Minute Warning. The imposing, powerful tandem tore through Raw’s tag team division before going their separate ways. Rosey then formed a beloved superhero duo with The Hurricane, which culminated in his first World Tag Team Championship reign.

    The Anoa'i family shared the following statement:

    "The Anoa’i family is mourning the loss of Sika's son, Matt aka Rosey, due to an untimely death.

    We want to let his fans know that he loved them and the wrestling world so much. In his passing, he left three beautiful young children and a heartbroken family. Please respect the privacy of his children and family as they mourn the loss of this kind, loving, gentle man, who was a father, son, brother and a superhero to us all.

    Our family appreciates your prayers and continued support during this very difficult time."

    WWE extends its condolences to Rosey’s family, friends and fans.
    My condolences goes out to the Anoa'i family. He now reunites Jamal in Heaven to reform 3-Minute Warning.

    RIP Rosey

    He's ganking fools who are trying to sneak into heaven with his old pal Jamal. Three minutes and you're out.

    Rest in peace.

    Always a shame to hear when another wrestler dies below 50; Rosey was a fairly decent wrestler and his team with Hurricane was enjoyably humorous.

    RIP, you and Jamal are wrecking shit wherever you are now.

    SHIT! That sucks man.

    I just lost my mom and I know how much it sucks to have to wake up the next day knowing your loved one is no longer with you.

    Prayer to his family.

    Clearly Rosey and Jamal are at the Golden Gates as Security making sure everyone keeps in line as they are going to heaven. Don't ever try to get by those two, it might be the mistake of a lifetime.

    Rip Rosey.

    RIP Rosey.

    Be interested to know the cause of death. That's him, Umaga & Yoko all from the same family dead before 50, wonder how much their size played a part (apologies if this speculation is considered bad taste).

    Well, Umaga OD'd. But he certainly was obese, as were the other two. He was unlikely to have made it to 50 at that size, anyway.


    Samoans are commonly afflicted with weight issues, and American Samoa has the highest obesity issue in the world, with 95% of the country being overweight.


    Then again, only time will tell what happened to Rosey. But his size and fact he had heart issues is pretty telling.

    I knew he was related to Roman in some form but had no idea they were actually brothers. Damn.

    RIP.

    Their theme song was pretty sweet, IMO. RIP Rosey, may you and Jamal/Umaga wreck havoc up above.

    Death confirmed related to his congestive heart failure.

    Very sad news. I enjoyed Rosey's run with both 3MW and The Super Heroes in Training. I always thought that 3MW deserved a better run. It's so sad that both Rosey and Jamal died at a young age. Condolences to Roman Reigns and the rest of the Anoa'i family.
