The Ultimate Warrior Passes Away

Its sad to say, but another star has fallen. The Ultimate Warrior, real name James Hellwig, passed away on Tuesday as first reported by a Tweet from Triple H. The Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and appeared at Wrestlemania on Sunday April 6th 2014. Hellwig was 54.

For wrestling fans in the late 80s and early 90s the Warrior was a phenomenon who burned brightly in feuds with Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and the Undertaker but disappeared from the scene almost as quickly as he arrived. The Warrior did claim the then WWF title from Hogan at Wrestlemania VI and became the first man to hold both the World Championship and Intercontinental belts at the same time.
