Default R.I.P. Umaga

Umaga, or Eddie Fatu, died this morning of a heart attack. He was 36 years old.

Isn't he the one that wore a giant thong and would stick his butt in his opponents face in the corner of the ring. Nasty!!

No, that was Rikishi. Umaga was part of a tag team for a while called 3 Minute Rule. He also wrestled as Umaga up until June when he was let go from the WWE for not submitting to a rehab program. I can see how it's easy to get them confused though

Rikishi


Umaga

No. That was Rikishi. Umaga came out yelling with his tongue sticking out. Had tatooes all over.

R.I.P Umaga.

Only 36 years old and it was his second heart attack. Ouch.

It's easy to confuse them since they are brothers it is sad that another wrestler is gone way too early.
