Was inducted into the Wrestling Hall Of Fame over the weekend, passed away yesterday.

Sadly, it isn't for a pro wrestler. So many don't even make it that far.

Sail on. I remember seeing him wrestle Andre the giant live with my dad. He was one of my favorite wrestlers when I was young and I remember being so excited getting to see him.

I was only a fan of wrestling for a short time during my teen years, but that time coincided with Warrior's reign. Wrestlemania VI against Hogan was classic.

He was one of the biggest stars when I was a kid I was a huge fan when I was kid.

I caught his speech on Monday night, pretty eerie.

Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath and if what that man did in his life 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 immortalised.

TMZ.com is reporting that The Ultimate Warrior’s cause of death is officially ruled as a massive heart attack. The official cause from the coroner’s office was “Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease” or simply put, heart disease.

What is sad is that we all jump on the Drugs/booze/Steroids train. when it could be plain and simple Sleep apnea in some (or even a lot) of cases. men that have necks 19 inches and up are at a higher risk and the symptoms are the same
for the self induced stuff. high blood pressure risk of stroke and heart attack
either way it could be prevented
I know that we all die, but 54 is too young in my book.
