Warrior, whose real name is James Hellwig, died at 54 on Tuesday night. TMZ says The Ultimate Warrior collapsed outside a hotel in Arizona at 5:50 pm while walking to his car with his wife. Warrior was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The speeches Warrior gave at his Hall of Fame induction and on RAW both are chilling in light of his death, as they seemed to foreshadow something like this. Perhaps he felt comfortable letting go now that he had his one last moment in the spotlight.
