THE Ultimate Warrior has died at the age of 54, WWE has sadly confirmed. Born James Brian Hellwig, Warrior electrified kids and adults alike during his time as a fearsome wrestler of the WWE (formerly WWF). His wild antics, shock of crazy hair and charged entrance made him a hit with those who are fans of professional wrestling.

For those who sniff ‘oooooh, it’s just all acting!’, The Ultimate Warrior took it wrestling to a high octane, monster truck level of theatre. He was bigger, bolder and weirder than his counterparts and everyone who watched him, immediately got excited when he appeared.

“WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior,” read a statement from the entertainment organisation.  “Warrior is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters.”

The cause of his death has not yet been revealed and, strangely, Warrior had appeared at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw, just before his death.

Just days ago, Warrior took his place in the WWE Hall of Fame, which is only right.

Throughout his life, both privately and professionally, Warrior was a thrill-a-minute. Not always right, but always worth watching.

Even when he appeared at Raw earlier in the week, he spoke with a certain amount of finality. Even though Warrior was a bit mad, he always knew how to work a room.
