  • Dave Meltzer wrote (On December 4, 2009): Eddie “Umaga” Fatu died a few hours ago in a Houston hospital after suffering two heart attacks, the first last night and the second during the afternoon, at the age of 36. He was probably the most talented worker inside the ring of a legendary family that had probably a dozen wrestlers including Afa, Sika, Samu, Rosey, Manu, Black Pearl, L.A. Smooth and brothers Solofa (Rikishi) and Sam (Tonga Kid) as well as a number of football players in the family as well. WWE is working with his family and there may be a service Tuesday or Wednesday since a lot of the crew would be able to attend since Smackdown is being taped in Houston. Fatu was living in Spring, TX, a Houston suburb, and lived near Shelton Benjamin, Shad Gaspard, MVP and Great Khali, and was business partners with Charlie Haas.
  • Mike Aldren wrote (On March 18, 2010): The nine page autopsy report on Edward “Umaga” Fatu was released this week. In addition to what was already known, there was no evidence of alcohol consumption and he wasn’t tested for steroids. However, Fatu, 36, weighed over 400 pounds at the time of his death and there was evidence of cardiomegaly–an enlarged heart–a probable side effect of steroid abuse which has been prevalent in the deaths of several high profile wrestlers over the years, most notably Eddie Guerrero in 2005 and Road Warrior Hawk in 2003.
