MUSCLE INK™ MAGAZINE: TRIBUTE TO A CHAMPION
ANDREW OYE'S WWE PRO LEGENDS REPORT: WWE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION, LEGENDARY WWE SUPERSTAR 'THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR' PASSES AWAY AT 54
Professional wrestler, bodybuilder and legendary sports-entertainer James Hellwig, known by his stage name "The Ultimate Warrior" passed away at 54. (June 16, 1959 – April 8, 2014).
Hellwig signed with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), where (to distinguish himself from the existing "Modern Day Warrior" Kerry von Erich and the "Road Warriors" tag team) he acquired his famous moniker -- "The Ultimate Warrior." At the 1990 WrestleMania, Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan, becoming the first to hold both the WWF Intercontinental and World Championships' titles simultaneously.
Following the recent launch of the WWE Network by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE, formerly WWF), Ultimate Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014 on April 5, 2014. The next day, April 6, Ultimate Warrior appeared at the 30th Annual WrestleMania. The next night, April 7, during his first appearance on Monday Night Raw in 18 years, he delivered a prophetic speech, saying, "Every man's heart, one day, beats its final beat." Ultimate Warrior died less than 24 hours later on April 8, 2014. The WWE says, "The Ultimate Warrior may be the most enigmatic man to ever hold the WWE Championship."
