I'm sure everyone's already heard the news, but Umaga passed away last week of a heart attack. He was only in his late 30s. Umaga was an incredible wrestler who took John Cena, arguably this generation's most dominant pro wrestler, to the limit and even drove the goody two shoes babyface champ to strangle him with the ring ropes. It was the only way Cena could keep "The Samoan Bulldozer" Umaga down. I saw him live at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, MI last year where he tagged with JBL against DX and they tore the house down. Umaga is a legend and I'm sorry to see him go so soon.
