Apparently confirmed by his wife on FB according to that article.

He is also Roman Reigns' older brother.

WWE confirmed it.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider has shared it on Twitter. Waiting on Meltzer to weigh-in on it.

I liked 3 Minute Warning. Was a fun gimmick at that time with Bischoff on Raw.

I barely remembered until I saw the picture that Umaga was the other member of that team. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the members of that family and I say that with no disrespect intended. There's a lot of them and lot of different gimmicks.

In college I worked at a Blockbuster Video in the Cincinnati area, where Rosey lived. He came in all the time and would talk wrestling or whatever. He was one hell of a nice guy. RIP.

True that.

Umaga = brother of Tama and Rikishi, nephew of Afa/Sika
Rosey = son of Sika, brother of Roman

Loved 3 Minute Warning.

Back when I used to buy advertising with WWE, I (or my coworkers) would get some nice perks when they were in town. The one Summerslam in Toronto I sat in the ACC restaurant with the talent during the show. Rosey sat beside us for a bit and was super nice. I remember he drank like 8 beers in a half hour. At any rate, he was very cool and so nice with us, I always rooted for him after that.

Sorry to hear about this.

Be nice if maybe the fans would stop pooping on Roman for awhile.

The Billy and Chuck wedding/commitment ceremony with Bischoff and 3 Minute Warning was awesome. For that and many other things you have done, thank you and RIP.

That was one of my favorite swerves - so well done.

John Cena commented via Twitter. Nothing wrong with this, but it made me do a double-take when he referred to Roman as Joe.
