(Source) WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of 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. We are grateful that just days ago, Warrior had the opportunity to take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and was also able to appear at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw to address his legions of fans. WWE sends its sincere condolences to Warrior’s family, friends and fans. Warrior was 54 and is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters.
3 nights ago at the Hall of Fame induction
Last night on RAW
What the fuck. We literally just saw the Warrior all over the place for the last 3 nights. Shocking as much as any Wrestler dying can be. Just bizarre timing all together. Fuck. All time legend.
If you weren’t the Ultimate Warrior at one point or another for Halloween or didn’t love using him for the action figure wrestling set every kid had growing up then you basically had no childhood. Such a classic WWF Superstar. RIP to Parts Unknown.
Remember these? Big time blast from the past. My Warrior one was my favorite by far.
