Familiar result in Eddie Fatu autopsy

Irv Muchnick. is reporting that the Harris County medical examiner in Houstonhas determined that former WWE star Eddie "Umaga" Fatu's cause of death was "acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and diazepam."

Hydrocodone ia a painkiller, carisoprodol is a muscle relaxer and diazepam is an anti-anxiety medication.

Fatu died on Dec. 4 last year at age 36 after suffering a massive heart attack while watching television at his home in Frisco, Texas.

Umaga was released from his WWE contract in June of 2009 after failing the company's Wellness Policy for a second time and refusing a trip to rehabilitation.

Fatu, along with Bobby Lashley, headlined the biggest money event in pro wrestling history, Wrestlemania 23 from Ford Field in Detroit, although the real drawing cards were their seconds for the match, Vince McMahon and Donald Trump.
