By Wayne Jumper

Eddie Fatu was a member of the Anao'i wrestling family. His mother, Vera, is the sister of the famous tag team The Wild Samoans (Afa and Sika). His two older brothers Sam (Tonga Kid and Tama) and Solofa Jr. (Rikishi) also wrestled in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He had several feuds with some of the top guys on Raw, including Triple H and John Cena to name a few. He was a two-time Intercontinental Champion as well with the WWE. Eddie died on December 4, 2009, due to an overdose of prescription drugs.

I don't suppose any of you remember the SST (Samoan Swat Team)? Samu & Fatu? Of course not. You were all running behind Hogan thinking he was the greatest thing since sliced bread when the real action was in WCW. Call him what you will, but Umaga was probably his greatest incarnation, and as far as I am concerned his heritage is not that of a wrestling family so much as a wrestling DYNASTY. Rikishi once said the "Island boys don't get much respect when it comes to world championships." Think about it. The Rock has been the only person with any Samoan heritage to win a major championship (well, if you don't count Samoa Joe. And who does?). But let that not lessen what this great family of wrestlers has contributed to the sport. Umaga will be missed.

Umaga was one tough sonofabitch. I can't agree with Duncan, as All the good Samoan wrestlers got good pushes. The problem was that when the WWE wants a champion that people can ethically relate to. Bruno had all the Italians going crazy for him, Pedro had the Ricans, Shamus the Irish. Even The Miz has the young "Jersey Shore" crew behind him. As good as the Samoan and Tonga wrestlers were, they just couldn't draw enough of their of own. Great tag teams, but very tough to keep a Samoan at #1, no mater how great his athletic skills were.
