Posted by Brad Davis April 9, 2014 65 Comments

It is with a heavy heart that we must report WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior has died.

Warrior, who was 54, was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday night in New Orleans. Warrior announced that he just signed a multi-year deal with WWE to serve as an ambassador for the company.

He appeared on Monday’s  RAW for the first time in two decades, cutting a passionate promo about the fans role in immortalizing his pro wrestling character and the incredible potential of the current WWE locker room.

WWE.com has issued the following statement regarding the tragic news:

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.

Rest in Peace, Warrior.

            • Canuck 703

              Warrior may of had his demons in the past but I have nothing but respect for the man. As for Mike however the putz is entitles to his opinion (however stupid it may be). And he’s either some little brat teen thinking it is cool or worse off some pathetic “adult”.

          • Koolaid

            I do have respect, what I’m saying is being taken out of context… when I’m referring to the illuminati I’m referring to the Irony of this situation I didn’t say it as a joke but clearly some people on this forum lash out on anything they see fit.

            • RalphRuffWoof

              go back to sucking your mom’s tits, kid.

      • sure..

    • mike

      He prob did way to much drugs last night and dropped dead. He didn’t die of natural causes.

    • Dharp

      Everybody have some respect for the Warrior damn he was A great Wrestler that went to early and A great family man

    • mike

      That is what happens when you do drugs

    • Hector Naranjo

      Man and just when he put himself back out there. The only man to acknowledge his family more on his induction than anyone else i can remember. Just watching him on raw brought childhood memories. R.I.P Warrior.

    • The_Coriginals

      I don’t care about the streak undertaker is still alive after that match but why the ultimate warrior? :,(

    • Jeff

      Wow. Fuckin’ Warrior. I spent my childhood watching him rip it up. RIP man. Sad day

    • charley ramirez

      Back in 2013 I went to a Gamestop convention in Vegas and Warrior was a special guest for the WWE booth, the line was long to see Warrior and get his autograph. He got there and started signing autographs but most importantly he talked to the fans and had a conversation for minutes on end. He wasnt just sign and go unlike other stars before him that night but he connected with his fans. I unfortunately left the line because it was taking to long but when i got back 2 hours later, i saw the person in front of me was just getting to meet Warrior and the joy on Warriors face to talk to his fans was priceless. Great man, Great personality, Great entertainer. RIP The Ultimate Warrior.

    • Lucas Tupper

      This is so surreal Warrior was just on RAW last night and the next night…he’s gone. RIP Ultimate Warrior Thank You For The Memories.

    • Kris Godwin

      What the fuck?!

      I… I don’t know how to process this. How did this happen?

      RIP Ultimate Warrior.

    • Troy Bennett

      this sucks he was one of the people i wanted to meet from the 80’s the other being tito santana. warrior was just that a warrior in the ring in the 80’s when it was popular to be slow and laz during matches warrior was high energy high impact and caused a cult following. and im honored to say when i was a kid i was a little warrior and still have his tshirt, so tomorrow im going to walmart and buy a glass frame and frame the shirt bc u cant find them anymore.

      • SJ

        I was more of a Road Warriors fan than that of other wrestlers at the time…since i was just in high school then!

    • Derp

      Wtf…seriously. RIP Warrior. I didn’t like you much, but I respected the hell out of what you did for the business.

    • stupididiotbobomo

      the fact that he just got in to the HoF and just a day later, he dies.
      maybe that’s the last thing he’s suppose to do.
      he didn’t really have a great promo on RAW but this is just shocking and weird at the same time.
      RIP Warrior.

    • Junior

      This is crazy the ultimate warriors was inducted into the hall of fame Saturday and last night he was on raw and ow he’s dead how the hell did this happen. He w one of my favorites back in the day there will never be another warrior . Thank you warrior your the best.

    • Junior

      Warrior warrior warrior warrior well miss you.

    • Junior

      I can’t wait to see Daniel Bryan lose that title he sucks . Jon cena will take that title go cenation.

      • junior licks nuts for fun

        your a tool

    • Junior

      This has been a week of shockers because it’s bad enough that the ndertaker lost the streak and now the ultimate warrior dies . And further more I’m sick and tired of hearing this bullshit yes yes movement from the stupid fans and Daniel Bryan.

    • JayRoz

      Owen, Benoit, now Warrior amongst others I hate to say it but it’s looking more and more like Vince is at the heart of these deaths somehow…. I hat conspiracy theories, but both my brother and I just stared at each other tonight and thought the same thing after seeing the picture of Vince and Warrior posted on this site… Warrior looks so happy, Vince looks somewhat evil almost seriously look at the picture.

      • Guest

        Yeah Vince cause Owen’s, Benoit, & Warriors death seriously as far as conspiracy theories go this is one of the dumbest I’ve heard of.

        • JayRoz

          I’m not saying it happened, I’m not saying it didn’t….all I’m saying is he wouldn’t be the first promoter in history to stage “accidental deaths” to garner attention or to settle a score. And I’ve grown up believing that there are no coincidences. That’s all I’m saying. Anyway, enough about this…I for one was really looking forward to seeing what the Warrior was going to do in back in the WWE as it’s ambassador, now I’m just shocked he’s gone.

    • Christopher

      I hope the warrior and hulk hogan buried the hatchet and forgive the past

    • Chris_Is_Awesome

      rip, though you gotta admit he didn’t look really healthy during hof/raw

    • Bulkster

      Oh man this is devastating. R.I.P man.

    • joker77

      omg I don’t no what to say?=-(im sad today and this morning I remember seeing the Warrior in 1989 in my hometown as a Kid watching in the front row as him and Slaughter battled inside of a steel cage match! 54 is way to young but God knows whan its your time to pass on he got another great guy in Heavens Gate RIP Warrior.
      will miss you deeply our hearts go out to your wife&kids&family! your #1 in my mind
      R.I.P. =(

    • Undertaker316

      I’m in total shock at the unfortunate news The Ultimate Warrior has passed away. His contribution to wrestling was legendary. I’m so glad he at least got to go into the Hall of Fame before his passing. RIP Ultimate Warrior

      • SJ

        Maybe what he’d want is for people to care about and like WWE anyway and help others feel better and be able to enjoy WWE again….even though bad things happen—GOOD things are supposed to happen more often than bad things!!!

    • yoyo

      “Every mans heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe its
      final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse
      through the bodies of others; If it makes them believe deeper in
      something larger than life; than his essence, his spirit, will be
      immortalized.” -Ultimate Warrior

      He knew his time was coming. R.I.P.

      • Dooms

        Few get to give a farewell speech before their death. Warrior went out in style, shaking the ropes one last time. R.I.P.

    • spike dudley

      Cornette face……. can’t believe it

    • JT

      Much respect to the Warriors family and friends; but I can’t shake the feeling that some demons from his past came back or they just caught up to him. I got the same bad vibe with Eddie Guerrero and,Chris Benoit I hope I’m wrong.

    • KingRatedRIV

      At least he got to share his side of stories in the new DVD. It’s almost like he knew this would come. He made peace with a lot of wrestlers in the back and he finally got his HOF ring.

    • Junior

      I hope that next week on raw the wwe universe pays homage to warrior and not that stupid yes movent crap Daniel Bryan can’t even tie his shoes . The warrior was the biggest legend and truly the best . What really makes me mad is that the wwe universe is so damm stupid that they forget who really deserves the respect.

    • P.P. Johnny

      P.P. Johnny was saddened to hear of the Warrior’s death, but wondered if the use of steroids years ago triggered his death?

    • Ruby

      R.I.P. Warrior. May God bring peace to your family and friends . You will be missed

    • Junior

      Your mother licks nuts for fun she just licked mines and she sucked.

    • Junior

      So if anybody has a problem for what I’ve said then you can kiss my puertorican ass.

    • Junior

      I hope that this coming week on raw the stupid wwe universe cheers and pays homage for the ultimate warrior. Oh but then again this is the wwe universe I’m talking about their so damm stupid they don’t no who to cheer for or not.

    • Gajonka

      Good trio of articles on Jim hellwig at Gajonka Film Universe. Awkward timing on the sting deal, for sure. I guess he will speak abt jim at Raw.
