    The Ultimate Warrior is dead!

    http://www.wwe.com/inside/ultimate-w...-away-26223975

    I'm shocked. He was just on Raw last night. Just inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday.

    Is this a hoax?

    I heard he lost the other night for the first time to Lesnar. (I'm not a huge WWE fan but follow some of the bigger stories) They said he had a concussion.


    EDIT: Yeah, I'm an idiot. Thought you were talking about the Undertaker.

    Really? How did he look?

    I haven't watched wrestling in about 20 years, but man, Warrior was my favorite. This time you've gone too far, FF2. Next time aim for Bieber.

    He looked old and out of shape, but did not look near death. After going back and watching his in-ring speech on Monday Night Raw, he struggled to walk without a noticeable stutter-step and he was breathing hard from not doing much. His speech is eerie.

    TMZ notes that The Ultimate Warrior posed for photos with fans at the airport in New Orleans around 6am on Tuesday morning. He was said to be in great spirits and offered to take photos with any fan who approached him.

    As noted, Warrior collapsed outside of an Arizona hotel shortly before 6pm on Tuesday, while walking with his wife. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Sounds like a Heart-attack.

    The pain that his wife and children feel right now is immense and I hope that as time goes by, they can take some solace that he died right after he made peace with his former employer and his fans. He had three days in the spotlight, got huge cheers from the fans and got to cement his legacy as a wrestling legend.

    Loved me some UM back in the day. As evidenced by his speeches, he was more than just some lunkhead wrestler.

    Another update :

    "According to TMZ, law enforcement officials that spoke to witnesses have stated that "clutched his chest" moments before he collapsed. Reports are that Warrior was walking down a hallway at the Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ and headed toward his car with his wife. AT one point he clutched his chest and then fell to the floor, and never recovered.

    No official cause of death has been revealed, with officials noting that Warrior "catastrophic medical event," likely a heart attack. At this time, there is no sign that drugs or alcohol had anything to do with his death. The death is being investigated, and they are planning to do an autopsy and toxicology tests to confirm the cause of death. "


    Looks to be a Heart attack.

    His speech was oddly prophetic.

    out of shape? the dude was 54 years old and spent half of those years bouncing off a wrestling ring. I actually thought he looked quite good for his age even despite that limp. Either way, a very very sad story. I feel terrible for his young daughters who looked so proud of their dad at the Hall of Fame. RIP Warrior

    Ultimate Warrior was a notorius roider his entire pro wrestling career so this is no surprise. 54 is pretty average life span for a lot of these pro wrestlers who did a significant amount of steroids in the 80's and 90's. Warrior was a notorius far-right conservative and a frequent guest on Fox News pundit shows later on. I'm not a big fan of the man but he was an entertaining wrestler and the Wrestlemania 6 main event where he beat Hulk Hogan was the greatest wrestling match I ever saw:

    He was breathing hard from walking to the ring. He was shaking when he tried to hand the mic to the cameraman.
    I consider that to be out of shape for any 54 year old man.

    Saw him put the Brain in a weasel suit at the Garden in the late 80's.
