Sammy Steamboat Brief Biography

Samuel K. Mokuahi (May 4, 1934 " May 2, 2006), better known by his ring name, Sammy Steamboat, was an American professional wrestler whose career spanned from the 1950s through to the 1970s.

Mokuahi started in the late 1950s in Hawaii before being discovered and trained by multi-time world heavyweight champion Lou Thesz. Thesz stated that Mokuahi was the only one he ever saw as a student or protégé of his, and worked in the midcard in Toronto in the early 1960s before moving to Florida territories, winning titles with Eddie Graham. WWE Hall of Fame member Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat was given his ring-name because he resembled his 'fellow' Hawaiian (Ricky is actually a native New Yorker of non-Polynesian mixed Caucasian and Japanese descent), but there is no relation between the two.
