TMZ reports that Ultimate Warrior from the WWE died on Tuesday night at age 54. Reports indicate that he was walking out of a Arizona hotel with his wife when he suddenly collapsed. He died at the scene.
This is especially sad, considering Dirty and I just saw him at Wrestlemania XXX this weekend in New Orleans. Crazy. From Hall of Fame to Wrestlemania to Raw to death in 4 days. Wild. (Here is a photo I snapped of him the other night.)
Vince McMahon tweeted "our heart is with his wife Dana and his two daughters."

In what became his final speech before the crowd at WWE Raw, he said "No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if that man did in his life what makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized.”
Rest in Peace, Ultimate Warrior. You will be missed.
