High Chief Peter Maivia

Gus Hanneman is quoted as saying that “it was Maivia who put the tiny islands of Samoa on the Map” for all the world to take notice. Maivia started his own Wrestling Promotion (Polynesian Pro Wrestling) in Hawaii, which became a hot spot for wrestling in the early days. He trained the likes of Afa the wild samoan, Superfly Tui, Farmer Boy Ipo and other greats that had left Hawaii to further there careers in either the NWA, AWA or WWF… some names that had their hey day under Maivia in Hawaii were Rick Martel, Don Muraco, The Missing Link, Rocky Johnson, even greats like Harley Race, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Nick Bockwinkel, Bobby Heenan & Chief Jay Strongbow, Chief Billy White Wolf, Lord Tally Ho Blears, Curtis the Bull Iaukea & Ric Flair were familiar faces in PPW…

Peter Maivia is credited as the first Polynesian wrestlers ever to step foot in the squared circle…
