Wrestling author and journalist, Irv Muchnick, is reporting that Eddie "Umaga" Fatu died from "acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and diazepam." Hydrocone is a painkiller. Carisoprodol, commonly called soma, is a muscle relaxer. Diazepam, commonly called Valium, is an anti-anxiety medication.
Fatu died on December 4th, 2009, shortly after being released by the WWE for failing his second drug test and refusing rehab. His death was not mentioned on WWE television.
