Another Wrestler Passes Away: WWE’s Umaga

Umaga en Chicago
I just learned today that Umaga, whose real name was Eddie Fatu or Edward Smith "Eki" Fatu, passed away on December 4th, 2009, a couple of days ago.

I found this out on Twitter and since then I’ve read about it on WWE.com.

The wrestler will mainly be remembered for portraying Umaga in WWE although he did wrestle in other promotions. He was let go from WWE earlier on this year. Umaga was of Samoan descent and was related to Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock), Rikishi, Afa and Sika of the Wild Samoans, and Tama. They are one big wrestling family - the Anoa’is.

"The Samoan Bulldozer" died because of a heart attack. He suffered one, which landed him in the hospital, and then a second heart attack claimed his life.

RIP Eddie, and my deepest thoughts go out to his family.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
