Since his WWE debut in April 2006, Umaga had proven himself to be one of the most dominant superstars on the RAW roster. The 348-pound Samoan Bulldozer went on to have one of the most impressive unbeaten streaks in WWE history, lasting over 8 months. Since then Umaga has gone on to have main-event feuds with the likes of John Cena, CM Punk and Bobby Lashley - he is a destructive force to be reckoned with. The Samoan Bulldozer was then moved to SmackDown! courtesy of the 2008 WWE Draft. He underwent an injury which sidelined him for months. He came back to have a little spat with CM Punk and then lost to him before partihg ways with the WWE. Nonetheless, Umaga definitely left his mark on WWE programming.
Umaga was pronounced dead on December 4, 2009 after suffering a second heart attack. He was 36 years old.

Don't be fooled by Umaga's relatively low Overall; this beast can destroy some of the best that the game has to offer. Umaga's move-set consists of two styles, Brawler (Hold R1/B and move the right analogue stick left) and Power (Hold R1/B and move the right analogue stick right). If you're looking to finish your opponent off with a Samoan Spike, then brawler is the way to go, as it includes moves that can do a lot of damage to your opponent's head such as the headbutt (once in a brawler grapple move right analogue stick up) and the throat thrust (once in a brawler grapple move right analogue stick right). Moves like this should have your opponent's head in the red zone in no time.
Umaga may only have one finisher, but it's very effective. The Samoan Spike is very easy to execute; simply stand in front of your opponent while he's groggy and tap L1/B. If you're looking for more of Umaga's signature moves then whipping your opponent into the turnbuckle is where you'll find them. Once your opponent is in the corner move the right analogue stick to the left to execute Umaga's diving headbutt (which sees him leap from the second rope) or move the right analogue stick up to use Umaga's infamous hip attack (sets his opponent at the bottom of the turnbuckle then charges at him, crushing his head between Umaga and the turnbuckle).
Umaga is a Super-Heavyweight in weight class, meaning that there are no limitations to who he can pick up (even The Great Khali isn't safe). He also has an immunity to lifting and striking attacks from cruiserweights, meaning there easy pickings for the Samoan Bulldozer. His speed attribute of 6.5 may give you a slight disadvantage in cage matches but overall you shouldn't have too many problems dismantling your opponent with Umaga.

Much like other destructive monsters in the game, Umaga contains the Powerhouse and Brawler styles, giving him the easing possibility of pummeling his opponents in a heap, and using his power to tear through them fiercely. He will go berserk - which actually fits the guy - when Rampage Mode is triggered. His finisher, the Samoan Spike, hurts like no other.
Smackdown vs. Raw 2009
Umaga returns with a vengeance, similar attributes but still as menacing as ever. With the incorporated fighting abilities, he can K.O. his opponents by using too much force. He is able to get out of submissions easily with Lock Pick, and can issue a strong irish whip to punish the opponent's back or to swat him out of the ring. Should he bleed... not only is it not good for his face paint, but he'll automatically acquire a finisher and go berserk on his prey.
