Former WWE Wrestler Eddie "Umaga" Fatu Dead at 36

Dec 4, 2009 by Ric Stevens

umagaFormer WWE wrestler Eddie Fatu, known to millions as Umaga, passed away today at the age of 36 of an apparent heart attack.

Reports are currently sketchy at this point and the cause of death is unknown, but a few revelations have surfaced.

It appears that Fatu fell asleep while watching television in his Texas home last night and simply never woke up.

His wife found him several hours later with blood coming out of his mouth.  He was not breathing and unresponsive.

It has been reported that he was placed on life support in a Houston hospital and his family and friends were told to get there as soon as they could.

He was taken off of life support this afternoon.

Fatu was released by WWE in June after violating the company's Wellness Policy and refusing to go to rehab.

Most recently he was wrestling on the Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair tour of Australia.

No further details are available.
