Breaking News: WWE's Umaga Has Just Been Released!

Scott BeebySenior Analyst IJune 8, 2009

The Smackdown superstar has just been "future endeavoured" by the company!

There are no details as to why he's been released at this stage, but hopefully more information will emerge in the days ahead.

I personally will miss "The Samoan Bulldozer." I thought his match at Extreme Rules was decent for a strap match and his in ring work was very good for a larger wrestler.

WWE really killed his gimmick a few weeks ago when he talked for the first time. He told CM Punk (his opponent at Extreme Rules) that their match would be a samoan strap match.

Umaga, or Eddie Fatu as he's known in the real world, has had good feuds with Jeff Hardy, Batista, and Bobby Lashley over his short career. 

What does Umaga's release mean for the Smackdown locker room? Does this mean that CM Punk will make a full blown heel turn to take Umaga's place on the roster?

Hopefully Eddie Fatu will go to TNA and get more exposure there then he did in WWE.

Good luck Eddie. Thanks for some great matches!
