The announcement came as nothing short of a shock to fans. Warrior was 54 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame over the weekend. He appeared on RAW Monday night. But in the context of his passing Tuesday, the speeches he gave on Monday at RAW and during his Hall of Fame induction are extremely chilling.
In his speech at RAW, Warrior talked about spirits being immortalized by storytellers, memories from fans, and life legacies.
“The spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever,” is how he closed his speech.

Here’s some of Warrior’s speech from his Hall of Fame induction over the weekend:
In that speech, Warrior talked about pushing his body to his limits and how he loved the glory days.
“I remember blowing up in the ring sometimes so bad, all I could hear was the beat of my heart. I couldn’t hear anything else. It was so incredible that I would give a few years of a life I have left to go back and experience that kind of thing again.”
