The Ultimate Warrior Collapses to his Death at Age 54.

WWF Champion dies just days after induction into WWF Hall of Fame.

(SNN) - Brian James Hellwig, better known as the “Ultimate Warrior”, died suddenly Tuesday evening right in front of his wife. He collapsed without any warning, while walking with his wife to his car outside an Arizona hotel. He was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Just two days earlier, Warrior attended a ceremony at WrestleMania XXX, where he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014. During his acceptance address Warrior stated, “ Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized.”

Warrior is the only professional wrestler who ever held both the WWF Championship and the Intercontinental Championship at the same time.

Warrior, who legally changed his name in 1993 was a true WWE legend and considered one of the most iconic wrestlers of all time. He was only 54-years-old.
