Hang in there, Umaga. At 36, you have many more matches in you. And if you don't make it, I'm sure that you and all of the wrestling greats are going to put on one hell of a spectacle in that glorious, heavenly ring. God bless.

# 28? Lesnar isn't dead...

And there is no official word on Eddie Fatu yet, either, though the feeling is that it is imminent. Yes, the WWE people are twittering about it, but until the family makes an official announcement, no one is going to report that he's passed (who wants to make THAT mistake twice in one day?) until they get official word.
