Sorry if this has already been posted but has any seen the Usos using the haka as part of the entrance? I thought the haka was from new zealand?

it is from New Zealand, it doesn't make any sense.

And Samoa was part of New Zealand until January 1962... Fail to see your point

The haka is a Maori ceremonial dance. The Maori people hail from New Zealand and the surrounding islands, which include Samoa. The particular haka that the Uso's performed is called Kama Te and is a Maori war dance.

The people there have a lot of traditions that carry over all the islands, simply because until fairly recently (as historic events are measured) they were all the same nation, making it a lot easier to carry traditions over from one people to another

I was never a good student of geography in school, but watching enough wrestling made me want to know what the deal was with the Samoan tribal tattoos, and that led down a whole path of awesome info

I just like learning about other cultures, especially when they are protrayed the same way over and over, it's fun to see where it all comes from, and what cool traditions they have that my own cultural roots (Irish and Scottish) do not.

Though I do wish sometimes that I was Samoan, cause the tats are still AWESOME!

New Zeland are probably most famous about doing the hakka, but many other countries do it too. Tonga, Fiji and Samoa have their own, unique hakka that they perform before rugby matches. It's an ancient tradition from that area of the world.

Samoa do the HAKA at times when they pay rugby im not sure but i think Fiji do also. I think all pacfic islanders do a verson of the Haka but there are quite a few different 'routines'.
