How come these groups who look like Asian people are very tough physically: Samoan, Tongan, Maori-an ?

But East Asian themselves are tough mentally but they are not known for their tough physique.

Like Haku / Meng from WCW/WWE, for example, all of his wrestler friends fear him.

    There is a deep science behind this which is mostly related to genetics. Actually, over the years there have been famines, lack of food and polynesian voyagers had to stay hungry for long hours during journey. When they are extremely hungry, their bodies start storing fat to prevent them from dying due to which fatter ones survived and skinnier ones died. So fatter ones spread their genes. That will I call "adaptation mechanism".

    When you're fat enough, there is less wasting of muscles. But they aren't too muscular, they are just very fat who can grapple and push their opponent around. East Asians never experienced such incidents throughout their history.
