How is Tamina Snuka related to The Rock?

Both Jimmy Snuka and The Rock's father married into the Anoa'i family, which is how Tamina became connected. Fellow WWE superstar Nia Jax is also related to the creator of The People's Eyebrow, albeit a bit more closely. Her dad, Joseph Fanene, was directly related to Peter Maivia, The Rock's grandfather.

In the early days of The Rock's career, he was even billed as Rocky Maivia, a head nod to both his dad and connection to the Anoa'i family. He would go on to become arguably the most successful pro wrestler of all time.

The Rock has shared his wealth with his cousin, Tamina Snuka.

In a viral video the Red Notice star posted online, he can be seen covering Tamina's eyes and walking her into a fully furnished house. He kisses her on the back of the head and then removes his hand and the WWE star is immediately overcome with emotion.

While a ton of people gave props to The Rock for gifting the house, it soon started a conversation about how wrestlers are being paid in the WWE.

Some folks wondered if there was a wage gap between female and male performers. Others just thought pro wrestlers in general probably weren't making enough to make ends meet.

It's a well-known fact that many wrestlers' contracts stipulate they must cover their own rentals, hotel rooms, and food while traveling from venue to venue. However, airfare is covered.

Some who responded to The Rock's gesture questioned why he would buy a home for someone who is already gainfully employed. This ultimately lead to a back-and-forth with rejoinders from individuals stating that it was still an extremely generous thing for The Rock to do, regardless of her financial situation.

In addition to her work in the WWE, Tamina had a cameo role in The Rock's 2014 film Hercules, had a recurring role in WWE's Total Divas, and was a guest in 2015's Tough Enough. Her real name is actually Sarona (Tamina's for the ring), and she's voiced herself in a ton of WWE 2K video games. She regularly appears on WWE SmackDown! and RAW.
