Report on Edward ‘Umaga’ Fatu’s Death

– Harris County forensics investigator Dan Morgan reportedly confirmed to Wrestling Babylon’s Irv Muchnick that Eddie “Umaga” Fatu’s December death was officially caused by “acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and diazepam.”



Hydrocodone, a narcotic pain reliever (commonly misspelled “hydrocone”), Carisoprodol, a muscle relaxer (commonly traded as Soma) and Diazepam, an anti-anxiety medication (commonly traded as Valium), all come from drug categories historically identified as warning areas for members of the professional wrestling industry.

The “acute toxicity” label does not rule out the possibility that Fatu was chronically using these drugs but simply means that the death was directly attributed to use within a relatively short period of time.
