He once got arrested for getting caught up in a bar fight that he was trying to break up, and broke the handcuffs and asked the police officer, "Is that it?" He pulled wrestler Jesse Barr's eye out. He bit some guy's nose! He'd probably qualify for The Tyson Zone if he had any kind of mainstream presence.
Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Back in WCW in 1998, he was talking backstage with Chris Candido, Tammy Lynn Sytch and Chris Jericho when Eric Bischoff and Greg Gagne, an office suit, approached them. Meng told them that they were interrupting him while he talked with his friends. Bischoff and Gagne apologized to Meng. That's right, MENG got ERIC BISCHOFF, his boss, to apologize to him. THAT's the kind of Badass reputation he has and how scary he could be.
In 1986, while competing as King Tonga in the WWF, once bodyslammed Big John Studd (easily) after Studd had won a squash match (against two jobbers who had accepted Studd's latest "bodyslam challenge"). Later in 1986, when he began teaming with the Tonga Kid (and both changed their names to Haku and Tama, respectively) and called themselves the Islanders, got another major victory over Studd and his tag team partner, King Kong Bundy, by winning a $50,000 Tag Team Battle Royal at Madison Square Garden.
At WrestleMania VII when the Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) defeated Haku and Barbarian.
Finishing Move: Tongan Death Grip, Crescent Kick, Diving Headbutt. During his Dungeon of Doom days he also sometimes used a golden railroad spike as a foreign object.
Hard Head: So much that ramming his head into the turnbuckle would often prompt him to start no-selling everything, and/or ramming his own head into the turnbuckle to demonstrate how little it hurt him.
I Have Many Names: Prince Tonga, King Kong Tonga, King Tonga, Haku/King Haku, Tama Tonga, Meng
I Know Sumo: And seven other unspecified martial arts disciplines.
As King Haku: Modest Mussorgsky's "The Bogatyr Gates (in the Capital in Kiev)" (from his famous piano suite Pictures At An Exhibition. It's the same music Harley Race used during his run as the "King of the WWF" and that Jerry "The King" Lawler has used his whole time in WWE.)
(in SWS in Japan): The Natural Powers, w/Yoshiaki Yatsu
(in WCW): The Faces of Fear, w/The Barbarian
We Used to Be Friends: With Kurasawa (aka New Japan's Manabu Nakanishi). They were tag team partners as part of the Stud Stable before Meng switched to the Dungeon of Doom. On the September 30, 1995 WCW Pro, Kurasawa had finished his match but was still in the ring doing some kind of meditation/prayer ritual when Meng came down for his match and they had a standoff, with Kurasawa's manager Col. Robert Parker having to hold Kurasawa back. It happened again in December prior to Starrcade. In the latter case, it may have been justified, as WCW was building up the "WCW vs. New Japan" angle, as Starrcade that year was billed as the "World Cup of Wrestling" and featured a tournament between WCW guys and New Japan guys, although neither Meng nor Kurasawa competed that night.
Meng actually made a career out of Worfing. Since he often ended up playing Dragon-like roles, he'd regularly lose to the faces to set up their final showdowns with whoever he was Dragoning for. This was usually sold by the commentators as "I can't believe he beat The Monster Meng!"
He also Worfed for Goldberg during his final WCW appearance by losing in the usual 30 second squash instead of having a back and forth match with him.
Would Hit a Girl: Defeated Madusa in the WCW World Heavyweight Title Tournament on the October 25, 1999 Nitro. To Meng's credit he tried to scare her away by roaring and only hit her back after she actually hurt him a bit with a missile dropkick.
Wrestling Family: His sons Tevita and Alipate. Tevita spent a few years in WWE as Camacho. Alipate competes for New Japan Pro Wrestling as Tama Tonga or King Tonga Jr. While in WWE's developmental program FCW, Tevita was billed for a time as Donny Marlow and teamed with Brodus Clay as the Colossal Connection, which was the name of Haku's team with Andre. Also, Afa counts him as part of the Samoan dynasty.
Wrestling Monster: Actually one of the smallest guys ever to play the 'monster' role.
