— The Associated Press has released a story concerning the cause of death of former WWE performer Edward Fatu (a/k/a Umaga).
The article notes that Fatu’s passing last month “was caused primarily by the combined effects of painkillers, tranquilizers and a muscle relaxant” with “hypertensive cardiovascular disease” also mentioned as a cause.
Just before his death, Fatu had returned home after taking part in a wrestling tour in Australia. He was found unconscious at home on Dec. 3 and died after being taken to Northwest Medical Center in Houston.
