RIP Eddie “Umaga” Fatu

I just heard the news that the wrestling world has lost another star in it’s “universe” way too soon.  Eddie Fatu most recently known as “The Samoa Bulldozer” Umaga, passed away this evening in a Houston, TX hospital at the age of 36.

I don’t know if many people realize this, but almost all of the Samoans in the wrestling industry are practically related in some way.  Here’s a list of people in the business he was related to:

Afa & Sika Anoa’iThe Wild Samoans (uncles)
Sam FatuTama from The Islanders (brother)
Solofa Fatu Jr.Rikishi Fatu (brother)
Matt Anoa’iRosey from 3 Minute Warning (cousin)

Here’s a few Umaga moments to relive.  RIP Eddie “Umaga” Fatu
