Default RIP Ultimate Warrior

WTF....he was just inducted into the HOF a couple days ago. I'm literally in tears. By far my favorite wrestler of all time. RIP.

Didnt someone just put his photo up on the Mane today or yesterday? I am not a wrestling guy but at 54, how it happened? So many of these guys that did steroids seem to have trouble after their career.

That sucks. RIP Although I haven't watched wrestling in 20 plus years I do remember him. Making it to 60 when you do that many steriods as these guys/70's football players did is an achievement.

I mentioned that he thanked the fans, on Monday's wrestling show. I had no idea it would be a "goodbye". I'm in shock...

How has Sylvester Stallone made it so long? I guess he is very smart about it.

These guys usually have used quite a bit of stuff. I wouldn't put it all on steroids. My brother did independent wrestling for a bit. Tons of painkillers...and a great deal of Alcohol to go along with the daily punishment of the industry. Lifestyle takes it's toll.

sadly, it's not hard to find pictures of wrestlers in which everyone in the pic is dead

Even when I was 11 I knew that professional wrestling sucked. Like Drago says, "If he dies, he dies."

Im shocked about this news. Glad he was infront of a great crowd Monday night. Hate to hear about this but glad he was able to have some closure before he passed.

They say he just collaps walking out of his hotel to the car. I'm thinking heart attack/heart just stop.


I remember watching him and Hogan and Savage go at it, then become friends then go at it again. I loved his energy he brought to the ring. Big reason why most of his matches didn't last very long. lol

Indeed. Almost a cruel irony for fans like us, but for him personally, at least he got the recognition from Vince that he rightfully deserved. I feel awful for his girls who were at the WWE HOF induction ceremony and who looked to be around 9 or 10......Warrior even made a brief focus on his 2 daughters during his speech and called them his greatest accomplishment.

I agree, Drago was a jerk. I am glad Rocky kicked his ass.
