Ultimate Warrior death - drugs and alcohol not involved

Published Add your comment

Ultimate Warrior died of a suspected heart attack or, if you will, a “catastrophic medical event”, while drugs and alcohol were not believed to have played any part in the shock demise of the WWE legend.

Warrior was this year’s inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, with the ceremony taking place on Saturday just hours before a drama filled WrestleMania XXX, but tributes to the 54-year-old have now become far more sombre.

TMZ reports that Ultimate Warrior was seen to “clutch his chest” moments before collapsing it an Arizona hotel on Tuesday, citing comments from law enforcement and witnesses, and the former WWE superstar failed to recover.

Warrior was reported to have been walking down a hotel corridor at the Gainey Suites Hotel to meet his wife outside, but never made it. It would appear that he went into cardiac arrest, although it is unclear if he was pronounced dead on the scene.

An autopsy will be carried out by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner on Thursday to determine the cause of his death, which has been greeted with great sadness across the WWE family.

Triple H and The Rock have both tweeted their condolences the family of Ultimate Warrior, who made his final WWE appearance came on Monday at RAW, 24 hours after WrestleMania XXX.
