In an unfortunate twist of irony, professional wrestler The Ultimate Warrior died at the age of 54 on Tuesday, just days after finally being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
After many years of tension between the two over negative comments made in the DVD, “The Self-Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior,” the WWE and the world famous wrestler made amends and The Ultimate Warrior was to become an ambassador for the brand, kicked off by his induction along with an appearance on WWE Raw.
During his appearance, Ultimate Warrior made a now eerie speech, saying, “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 bleed deeper in something that’s larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers — by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever.”
Fans, admirers and friends took to twitter to pay their respects to their fallen hero.
Some say the athlete predicted his death.
Ultimate Warrior’s death is still unreal. Almost as if it was taken out of a movie. Almost as if he knew his time was limited. #RIPWarrior
