Certainly, we have witnessed several wrestling superstars throughout the years. However, there are certain names, such as Umaga, that will be remembered fondly by wrestling fans for a long time. Umaga, whose true name is Edward Smith Fatu, was a professional wrestler in the United States who was regarded as one of the finest in the business during his time in the ring. Umaga was a member of the Anoa'i family, which is a well-known Samoan wrestling family, and was known for his wrestling prowess. He will always be recognized as one of the WWE superstars that was seldom vanquished in the ring throughout his time with the company.
It was only on December 4th 2009 when the tragic death of Umaga was disclosed that shockwaves were felt across the wrestling community. In accordance with the report, Umaga died after suffering from acute toxicity-induced heart failure. He was found comatose in his home by his wife on the day of his death, with blood dripping from his nose, according to police. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, where paramedics concluded that he had had a heart attack and treated him accordingly. He was kept alive by a life-sustaining system till he succumbed to his injuries in the evening of that same day, regrettably.
According to toxicology findings, Umaga had taken a number of medications that caused him to suffer from heart failure. Hydroxycodone (a pain reliever), carisoprodol (a muscle relaxant), and diazepam were among the medications used. It was revealed that Umaga's usage of the medications listed above resulted in heart failure, which ultimately resulted in his death. Umaga died at the age of 36, according to his family.
Umaga will be recognized as one of the greatest American professional wrestlers the world has ever witnessed for the rest of his life. As a professional wrestler, Umaga has won numerous titles throughout his career, including two consecutive WWE Intercontinental Championships, the WEW hardcore tag team championship with Matty Samu, the HWA tag team championship with Kimo, and the MCW Southern tag team championship three times with Kimo.
