Dave Meltzer updated the sad news last night of the passing
of Edward “Umaga” Fatu died in a Houston hospital:
Fatu died 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.
