Wrestling icon Jim 'The Ultimate Warrior' Hellwig sadly died last evening at the age of 54. So far no reason has been given for his passing.

His death comes as a shock, just days after he made a return to the ring to accept his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The Ultimate Warrior - who had his name legally changed to Warrior -  established himself as one of the most iconic wrestlers in WWE history thanks to his colourful on-screen personality and energetic performances.

In that final appearance on Monday which marked his return to the ring for the first time since 1996, Warrior announced that he had signed a multi-year deal to serve as an ambassador for the WWE - and also cryptically spoke of his own mortality.

In his speech in front a packed house in New Orleans, he said: "No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath.

"And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them bleed deeper, and something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized.

"By the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever."

That seems to be pretty much the perfect eulogy for one of the most iconic wrestlers in history.

Check out his final words in the video above.
