Umaga death revealed from mixing drugs


The Harris County Medical Examiners office revealed the death of Edward Fatu, better known as Umaga, on 12/4, was from a heart attack caused by mixing three drugs.


Dan Morgan, the supervisory forensic investigar for Harris County, told Irv Muchnick in an e-mail, "The cause of death is acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol and diazepam."


Hydrocodone would be better known as Vicodin, Carispoprodol is better known as somas, and diazepam is better known as Valium. All three are commonly used drugs by a number of pro wrestlers. Vicodin is used for pain killing, Somas as a muscle relaxer sleep aid and Valium for anxiety. They are also used as party drugs.


Fatu, who died at his home in Spring, TX, suffered a heart attack the night before that left him in bad shape, and a second heart attack in the hospital the next day. He was 36.


In June, he was released by WWE after a drug test failure and refusal to go to rehab. He died after returning from an Australian wrestling tour headlined by Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. At the time of his death, both WWE and TNA were vying for his services and he had told people he had agreed to return to WWE.
