WWE: Ultimate Warrior autopsy reveals cause of death

Published Add your comment

James Hellwig - better known as the Ultimate Warrior - passed away last week, just days after being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

As has been previously reported, the 54-year old died while walking with his wife, clutching his chest and falling to the floor.

Well now, according to a report from TMZ, the autopsy on the wrestling star has been completed and the results are out. The medical examiner who conducted the autopsy has concluded by saying it was a heart attack or that took out the Warrior.

Officials classified Hellwig's death as natural, ensuring no drugs or alcohol were involved in the death. Warrior has been plagued however by stern accusations of steroid use, and this, combined with other factors, could have caused the attack.

Warrior collapsed on Tuesday after appearing at WrestleMania XXX to give his HoF speech, and appearing on Monday Night Raw where it almost seemed like he foreshadowed his own passing by talking to the crowd about a man breathing his last breath.

Tonight's episode of Raw is set to serve as a tribute to the 80's and 90's icon, who had famous feuds with Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage.

Warrior established himself as one of the most iconic wrestlers in WWE history thanks to his colourful on-screen personality and energetic performances, and is sadly missed by all in the WWE universe.
