Rikishi Shares Story of Yokozuna’s Generosity To His Family

Rikishi Shares Story of Yokozuna’s Generosity To His Family

WWE Hall Of Famer Rikishi has opened up about a touching story involving former WWE Champion Yokozuna and how generous he was.

His cousin Rikishi discussed his generosity with fellow WWE Hall Of Famers Gerald Brisco and JBL on Stories With Bradshaw and Brisco.

“Yoko won the [WWF Championship] back in the day so Yoko was the guy. Me and Sammy [Samu] were mid-carders back in the day and we won the [WWF Tag Team Title] and I’m thinking ‘okay we got the belts, we’re gonna make some real good money now.'”

“What happened was, I dipped most of my savings. I had just signed a contract with WWE so I dipped most of my savings and said ‘dammit I’m gonna buy me a house for my kids.’ Make sure we’re gonna start off with that so when I bought this freakin’ house, a couple of weeks later we’re on the road and I got a call from my family. Sefa and my twins were young back in the day and this house had no heat and it was freakin’ freezing back in Pensacola, Florida.”

On how Yokozuna helped his family:

“Me and Yoko were on the road and Yoko loved my kids. Like it was Uncle Rodney when Uncle Rodney came home, he’d shower these kids with hundred dollar bills and I’d get hot at him for giving my kids a hundred f*cking dollars because I can’t give them that. So when [Yoko] comes home, they’re all happy to see him but when I come home it’s like they’re waiting but I’m not gonna give them a hundred dollars.”

“We were riding on the road and he was like ‘what’s wrong?’ I said ‘man my freaking heating went out in the house, I got to figure it out.’ He could feel that I was stressing – where can I make a loan? How am I gonna fix it? He popped open his checkbook man, he signed it, didn’t even put a number on there and he just gave it to me. [Yokozuna said] ‘Go home and fix the heat for your family.'”
