WWE has expressed it’s sincere shock and deep sadness at the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior.

Warrior began his WWE career in 1987 and quickly went on to become one of the biggest stars in WWE history. Warrior became WWE Champion at WrestleMania VI, defeating Hulk Hogan in an epic encounter.

Last Saturday night, The Ultimate Warrior accepted his rightful place in the WWE Hall Of Fame before appearing at Wrestlemania 30 on Sunday and Monday Night Raw. 

54 year old Warrior, real name James Brian Hellwig reportedly collapsed outside an Arizona hotel at 5:50 PM yesterday while walking to his car with his wife. Warrior was transported to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

He is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters.

During his final appearance on Raw and less than 24 hours before his death, Warrior gave a speech to the fans and wrestlers past and present as his Ultimate Warrior character. During the speech he said,

“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!”
