Wrestler Eki “Umaga” Fatu, 36

Written under: Entertainment, Human Interest

Eki “Eddie” Fatu, or more commonly known in the wrestling world as Umaga, suffered a massive heart attack in Houston on Friday and never recovered. He was 36 years old.

Fatu was first found unconscious by his wife in the living room. He was then rushed to the hospital where he had a second and fatal heart attack.


“Umaga” had his career peak in 2007, when he co-headlined Wrestlemania 23. But his fame was short-lived because he refused to go into rehab after violating a drug policy by the WWE and his contract was released due to this.

To “Umaga”, we will always remember your talent and distinct facial tattoos and we join the World Wrestling Entertainment in mourning for this loss.
