Ultimate Warrior died of massive heart attack, autopsy shows
The Ultimate Warrior died last week after suffering a massive heart attack, the autopsy for the 54-year-old deceased wrestling icon showed.
Warrior was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday April 5 and appeared on RAW Monday April 7 as part of the huge weekend at WrestleMania 30. Fans and observers were stunned to learn that less than 24 hours after his appearance on RAW, Warrior — real name James Hellwig — had died.
Warrior’s death was classified as “natural,” with neither drugs nor alcohol directly involved.
Warrior was seen clutching his chest last Tuesday as he was walking in an Arizona hotel to his car. He collapsed and was taken to a hospital where he died.
