Wrestling Legend The Ultimate Warrior dies aged 54.
Fans of professional wrestling worldwide are grieving the death of one of sport's biggest legends, The Ultimate Warrior (James Brian Hellwig). Hellwig was one of the most iconic wrestlers in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) throughout the mid 80s and early 90s. An unforgettable sight for everyone who witnessed him, his image became synonymous with the WWE on the same scale of his rival and colleague Hulk Hogan, whom he had some healthy feuds with.
The Ultimate Warrior's death came just one day after he was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame, marking his return to the company after 18 years of absence. The wrestler carried a chilling speech which led many to comment that it is almost as he felt what's to come. He said: "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers".
