Update: Witnesses sent over info to TMZ stating that Warrior was walking out of an Arizona Hotel to his car with his wife, when suddenly he “clenched his chest hard” and gave out. Sources there state they don’t believe “drugs or alcohol were a factor and seems to be that he suffered a massive heart attack.” His autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
“I am Ultimate Warrior, you are the Ultimate Warrior fans and the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever” – Warrior (4/7/14)
It is with a saddened heart that we announce the passing of newly inducted WWE Hall of Famer ‘Ultimate Warrior’, who passes away at the age of 54 and leaves behind a wife and two daughters. Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014 this past weekend before WrestleMania 30 and what seems to us that he finally put away all of his past with the WWE and giving fans a one last hurrah at this past Monday Night’s RAW.
We are all so sad that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away. Our heart is with his wife Dana and his two daughters.

The video below is Warrior’s last promo on WWE Television and looking back to the footage, it does feel a bit odd. The speech really sounded like a final goodbye with people remembering someone by their history. Whatever the case may be, we have lost a Legend in Professional Wrestling. May you Rest In Peace Warrior.
