Edward Fatu, 36, otherwise known as “Umaga” has died stemming from complications relating to a reported heart attack. The wrestler died at Houston’s Northwest Medical Center on Friday.

As a biography, Dawn Marie Psaltis was born on November 3, 1970 so her age is 39. She is a former ECW and WWF Diva. She is 5 ft 7 in and weighs 120 pounds. Her father, a zoologist, raised her and they enjoyed camping and hunting. She also enjoyed the World Wrestling Federation. At the age of twenty-two, she graduated from the New York University Stern School of Business. Following, she worked for a real estate consultancy firm in Manhattan, New York, eventually becoming the Director of International Real Estate. She later decided to pursue modeling and acting, where she became a manager for wrestlers on the independent circuit. The wrestler signed a contract Extreme Championship Wrestling and managed the Impact Players and Simon and Swinger until they went bankrupt in 2001. In 2005, she was let out of her contract after she found out she was pregnant and she filed a lawsuit against former employers. The wrestler told Jonathan Gold, a talent agent and wrestling promoter that she was interested in pursuing professional wrestling. The agent later scheduled Psaltis and she attended a wrestling show in New Jersey. In January of 2005, she made her wrestling debut. While in independent wrestling promotions, she met her fiance Simon Diamond. She began training with her trainers Buddy Landell and Devon Storm. She worked on the northeastern independent circuit for approximately four years. In 2001, the wrestler worked as a stock trader presented on wrestling radio show called “Piledriver Rock and Wrestling Radio Show”. Her boyfriend and fiance of many years, had planned to marry by 2001, but their relationship met its end. June of 2005, met her husband Matt and they married in Las Vegas. Together, they have a boy who they named Matthew, born on December 20, 2005 and a girl who they named Katie, born on May 19, 2009.

Because of former WWE wrestler, Dawn Marie Psaltis and her charity called “Wrestlers Rescue”, this foundation can give peace of mind and support to wrestlers and their families who cannot afford medical expenses nor who do not receive benefits, like that of “The Samoan Bulldozer,” Edward Fatu. Psaltis said, “To find health care that covers wrestlers costs quadruple the price of regular coverage, so a lot of the guys end up going without. They continue to wrestle way past their prime because there’s no pension, and because there’s no health care, they never prepared for their future health concerns. It’s an endless cycle.”

It is said that Fatu was let go from WWE because the wrestler apparently was in violation of their policy regarding the company’s “Wellness Policy” concerning drugs and substance abuse. He was a big boy with measurements of height of 6 ft 4 in and weighing in at 350 pounds.

The WWE expressed, “its deepest condolences to Mr. Fatu’s family, friends and fans on his tragic passing.”

Hopefully, Dawn Marie Psaltis and her charity can help the family of the late WWE wrestler. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Fatu family and their fans. Leave us your well-wishes in the comment box and see photos and a film here.
