Former WWE superstar Edward “Umaga” Fatu, 36, is currently in a Houston hospital and is in very bad shape.Â A long-time friend described his condition as “life threatening.”
Details are still sketchy at this point, but he apparently fell asleep last night while watching television, and several hours later, his wife found him not breathing with blood coming out of his nose. He was rushed to the hospital last night and his family has been told to fly into town as quickly as possible.
There were reports going around that Umaga had died from prescription pain pills and WWE was already preparing a statement regarding his death, but those reports have been unsubstantiated at this time. There was been talk among many wrestlers that Umaga is dead or brain dead, but at this time, his family will only confirm that he’s been hospitalized.
We wish Eddie Fatu the very best and hope he pulls through this.
