From Figure4 Online

Edward Fatu, 36, is hospitalized in Houston and in what was described as life threatening condition by a long-time friend.
His family was told to come into town as quickly as possible.
Details are 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 and he was rushed to the hospital.
I seriously hope he pulls out of whatever it is.

Wow, this sucks. I know he's been addicted to drugs in the past...I wonder if this has to do with that.

PWTorch.com’s James Caldwell posted a message this afternoon that Umaga was dead from prescription pain pills and WWE was already preparing a statement regarding his death, but that news was quickly taken offline. There has 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.

I just hope that is idle speculation.

Son of a bitch...........

In an update on the condition of Edward "Eddie" Fatu (a.k.a. "Umaga") — who is presently hospitalized in an ICU unit in Hoston, Texas — Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online -- WWE, TNA, UFC and International Wrestling and MMA Headlines - Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online is reporting that the former WWE performer has been taken off life support.

"He is off life support and not in a good way," Alvarez reports. "Appears to be just a matter of time at this point."

His family was told to get into town as quickly as possible. Family members have been told they believe he suffered a heart attack.

While details are still sketchy at this point, he apparently fell asleep last night while watching TV, and several hours later, his wife found him not breathing with blood coming out of his nose. He was then rushed to the hospital.

Fatu, who lives in nearby Spring, Texas, wrestled under a number of names including Ekmo, Jamal and most notably Umaga. He had just returned a few days ago from a wrestling tour overseas.

This is terrible news, another wrestler that is leaving way to soon. The reports are that he's brain dead, personally if their taking off life support it means that he doesn't have much time.

This fucking sucks.

Yeah, he'll be dead within the hour I'm sure...if it hasn't happened already. I am not going to change this thread title until 100% confirmed, however.

Sad day. These guys will never learn.

I know he's not with WWE anymore, but I really hope the WWE does a small things for him, even if it's just showing his picture and the year he was born and the year he left us. I think it would be nice of them to do this for the Fatu family, especially since he gave so much to the company.
