Umaga hospitalized in Houston
By SLAM! Wrestling

Word is circulating quickly throughout the wrestling world that former WWE star Umaga -- real name Eddie Fatu -- has been hospitalized in Houston and is in grave condition.

"Say a prayer for my boy Umaga," wrote Mr. Kennedy (Ken Anderson) on his Twitter account earlier today.

The Wrestling Observer newsletter is reporting that 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.

Family has been asked to come to Houston.

Back in June 2009, Fatu was released from his WWE contract for his second violation of the company's Wellness Policy, and his refusal to enter rehabilitation.
