54-year-old James Hellwig is a real legend in the WWE having been inducted into the Hall of Fame just this last weekend. Also this week he made his first appearance on “Monday Night Raw” in many years.

The response on the WWE website

WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior.


Warrior began his WWE career in 1987 and quickly went on to become one of the biggest stars in WWE history. Warrior became WWE Champion at WrestleMania VI, defeating Hulk Hogan in an epic encounter.


We are grateful that just days ago, Warrior had the opportunity to take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and was also able to appear at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw to address his legions of fans.


WWE sends its sincere condolences to Warrior’s family, friends and fans.


Warrior was 54 and is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters.”
