In an interview with Slam Wrestling, Solofa Fatu AKA Rikishi commented on the death of his brother Eddie “Umaga” Fatu.
“Also to have so many people out of the business of wrestling, the Umaga character has touched everybody, good or bad. It’s something that’s out of our hands. You never want it to happen to you personally. I’m very grateful that I had the last part of his life to spend with him in Australia. We had a heart to heart talk. We hadn’t seen each other in a while. With that note, everything was fantastic. So my heart is full, my heart is full. But I can only say this, I’m very sorry for the loss of professional wrestling, such a good wrestler.”
