Ken Anderson posted a message on his Twitter page regarding Eddie Fatu (a/k/a Umaga). “I’m very thankful to have had a private closed-door conversation with Ecki prior to our match a few days ago in Sydney,” Anderson wrote. “He insisted that we go out and tear the house down. We both had something to prove that night and in my opinion: Mission Accomplished!
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Fatu family. Ecki absolutely adored his wife and was extremely proud of his children. I have so many amazing, funny, and heartwarming (sometimes gut wrenching belly-laughing) memories.”
