Biography

Fatu was born on March 28, 1973 in American Samoa, a member of the famous Anoa'i wrestling family. His mother, Vera, is the sister of Afa and Sika of the Wild Samoans, and his later Umaga gimmick would be compared to their "wildness".[3] His two older brothers, Sam (better known as Tonga Kid and Tama) and Solofa Jr. (Rikishi, the Sultan), are also professional wrestlers who have achieved success of their own.

Team with Matt Anoa'i

Main article: 3-Minute Warning

Fatu trained to become a professional wrestler at the "Wild Samoan Pro Wrestling Training Center" operated by his uncles, Afa and Sika. In 1995, with his training complete, he started wrestling for Afa's World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW). The next year, both Fatu and his cousin Matt were brought into the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) to take part in an angle with Solafa Fatu, Jr., Eddie's brother and Matt's cousin, that ended up being quickly dropped.[2] Instead they were sent to the WWF's "farm territory" Heartland Wrestling Association", where they formed a tag team which stayed together through various promotions — including Memphis Championship Wrestling and Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling, holding championships in both[4][5] — under the names Samoan Gangstas and Island Boyz. In 2002 the team was brought back to the (now renamed) World Wrestling Entertainment as 3-Minute Warning, a pair of enforcers for RAW brand General Manager Eric Bischoff. [6] The team lasted just shy of a year, with Jamal being released from his WWE contract in June 2003, reportedly after his involvement in a bar fight.[2][7] 3-Minute Warning (also spelled Three Minute Warning) was a professional wrestling tag team on World Wrestling Entertainments RAW brand consisting of Matt Anoai (as Rosey) and Eddie Fatu (as Jamal). ...

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling

After his release from WWE, Fatu reverted to the name Ekmo — used when he was a member of the Island Boyz team — and began working for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). He worked for TNA between June and November of 2003, during which time he was put into a tag team with Sonny Siaki. The team feuded with America's Most Wanted (Chris Harris and James Storm).

Fatu left TNA for All Japan Pro Wrestling, where he used the name Jamal — the same name he'd used as a member of 3-Minute Warning. He was again used as a part of tag teams, first forming a short lived team with Justin Credible before forming a more permanent team with Taiyō Kea.

2005-2007

In December 2005, Fatu re-signed with World Wrestling Entertainment.[10] Initial signs pointed to a reunion of 3-Minute Warning, with the former team of Matt Anoa'i (Rosey) and Fatu (Jamal) wrestling in dark matches together before episodes of RAW.[11] However, Rosey was released from WWE before the team could be brought to the main show.[12] World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ... 3-Minute Warning (also spelled Three Minute Warning) was a professional wrestling tag team on World Wrestling Entertainments RAW brand consisting of Matt Anoai (as Rosey) and Eddie Fatu (as Jamal). ...

Fatu re-debuted on the April 3, 2006 episode of RAW with a new gimmick and name.[13] Now called Umaga — the same name of the final part of the Samoan tattooing process, meaning "the end"[14] — he was depicted as a destructive savage who could only be controlled by his manager, Armando Alejandro Estrada.[15][16] The pair started out feuding with Ric Flair, whom Estrada interrupted in the middle of a promo to tell how much of a fan of his he used to be, but that now he was old and needed to retire. It was in offering the fans a new "hero" to watch that he introduced Umaga, who proceeded to beat down Flair.[13] For the next few weeks Umaga participated in squash matches, destroying various jobbers,[17][18] until he dispatched Flair at Backlash at the end of the month.[19] Professional wrestling has accrued a considerable amount of slang, in-references and jargon. ...

Umaga then returned to defeating jobbers. His next actual feud started at August's SummerSlam, where he was supposed to be an enforcer on behalf of The McMahons (Vince and Shane) during their match against D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels and Triple H), only to be attacked by Kane as he made his entrance.[20] Kane and Umaga feuded for the next two months until Umaga won a Loser Leaves RAW match, sending Kane off of the brand.[21] After being separated by different brands, Umaga and Kane had one final match at Cyber Sunday where Umaga again defeated Kane after fans selected him over Chris Benoit and The Sandman to be Umaga's opponent for the night.[22] A professional wrestling feud is a staged disagreement between two wrestlers or factions of wrestlers over a purported slight or insult. ...

Fatu during a RAW house show.

Umaga, having still not been pinned in the WWE, was then deemed #1 contender for the WWE Championship and placed into a feud with Champion John Cena over the title. Cena retained his belt at the New Year's Revolution pay-per-view by pinning Umaga with a roll-up, officially ending his streak — which had lasted 34 televised matches and spanned from his debut in April 2006 to January 2007.[23] In that time Umaga was never pinned or made to submit on television, although he did lose two matches by disqualification and another went to a double count out.[24] For the rest of the month, Estrada played down Cena's victory, claiming it was a fluke, until a Last Man Standing rematch was signed for the next pay-per-view, the Royal Rumble.[25] On an episode of RAW between the two pay-per-views, Umaga attacked Cena causing a (worked) injury to his spleen and putting the match in jeopardy.[26] Cena (kayfabe) refused a medical exam, the results of which could cause him to forfeit his title, and then defeated Umaga by submission, wrapping a loosened ring rope around his neck during an STFU.[27] Image File history File linksMetadata No higher resolution available. ...

Though he was out of the world title picture, Umaga was named Vince McMahon's "representative" for the WrestleMania 23 "Battle of the Billionaires" with Donald Trump. Immediately after choosing Umaga, McMahon "granted" him a match against the Intercontinental Champion, Jeff Hardy, which he won handedly to take the title.[28] After Bobby Lashley was named Trump's representative, the two began a feud which lasted even beyond WrestleMania.[29] Despite Umaga losing in the "Battle of the Billionaires" hair versus hair match and causing Vince McMahon to get his head shaved,[30] the McMahons (Vince and Shane) continued to second him to the ring. Two weeks after WrestleMania, Lashley interfered in a match and helped a planted fan — Santino Marella — defeat Umaga for the Intercontinental title.[31] At the April 29 Backlash event; the team of Umaga, Vince, and Shane McMahon wrestled Bobby Lashley for his ECW World Championship in a Handicap match, winning the title for Vince.[32] While Umaga worked with the McMahons, Estrada became less and less involved until he stopped appearing altogether. In June, Umaga was re-entered into a feud with Santino Marella, the man who took his Intercontinental Championship earlier that April. When they met at the Vengeance pay-per-view, Umaga was solidly in control of the match, but lost by disqualification when he disregarded the referees instructions and continued to punch Marella.[33] In a rematch on July 2, Umaga beat Marella to win the Intercontinental title back.[34] Not long after, he seemingly started a face turn, joining forces with John Cena against Carlito and Randy Orton.[35][36] After defeating both Kennedy and Carlito in a Triple threat match at SummerSlam,[37] Umaga interrupted a RAW match between Kennedy and a returning Jeff Hardy, assaulting Hardy and leaving him lying in the ring.[38] One week later, on the September 3 RAW, Umaga lost the Intercontinental title to Hardy in a singles match. Later that night, he teamed with Carlito in a handicap match against Triple H, after which Triple H struck him several times with his signature sledgehammer, injuring him.[39] These events coincided with Umaga being named in an investigation on an online pharmacy (see personal life).
