ARIZONA – The name James Hellwig may not have meant much to some, but the name “Ultimate Warrior” is legendary to millions of wrestling fans.

The Ultimate Warrior passed away at the age of 54, just days after being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and appearing at Wrestlemania 30 in New Orleans.

Warrior hadn’t been seen on WWE TV in nearly twenty years until this past weekend. He recently signed a three-year contract with WWE as an ambassador, only making his passing more shocking to coworkers and fans.
