John Bradshaw Layfield: Very saddened to hear about the death of Eddie Fatu (known as Umaga in WWE) we were tag team partners on some of my last few road trips with WWE, had a ball with Umaga and will miss my friend. Enjoy your friends and family, life is great, but it also can be too short. So don’t miss a day, enjoy life today.

Samu Anoa’i: Thank you all. Rest in Peace My Cousin!! WE LOVE YOU

Abdullah The Butcher: Eddie “Ekmo” Fatu was a good caring man. he is now with the Lord in a much greater place. feel for his family but not for him as he is where we all can only hope to be. at peace.

Vito Lograsso: I truly have lost many guys in the Buss of Wrestling. 19 years worth. I hope what ever happened to Eddie, he is now in a place of peace. God only takes the best people. I am truly sad and hope this is a eye opener for all on Facebook. Enjoy your life and try to think of things in a positive way. If you have something b…othering you. No shame to call a friend. Makes you human. I am the first to admit life can be hard.
