The Ultimate Warrior passed away at the age of 54 yesterday evening in Arizona. According to TMZ, Warrior collapsed in front of his wife outside of their hotel as they were walking to their car.
This news comes less than 24 hours after Warrior, born James Brian Hellwig, made his triumphant return to the ring on Monday Night Raw. These would be Warrior’s final words to the WWE Universe:
No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever. You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back I see many potential legends. Some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of the Ultimate Warrior will run forever!
Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame just days before his death. He was the final inductee of the night, the headliner of what was a very special evening inside of the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. He is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters. Below you will find his appearance on RAW, the last of his Hall of Fame and highly inspirational career, and his first since 1996. Warrior got to shake the ropes for his fans one final time. R.I.P.
