- TMZ have confirmed Ultimate Warrior’s passing was the result of a massive heart attack.

Natural causes was cited as the cause of death, with no drugs or alcohol directly involved. The medical examiner’s official ruling for the cause of death was due to “Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease,” which is basically heart disease.

As we reported, WWE will pay tribute to Ultimate Warrior on Raw tonight.

    U knw I was telling this guy the same thing u guys are saying ironic how everyone is just now realizing it

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Nancy Grace NOW owe’s WARRIOR an APOLOGY!!!

  • what?

    I myself thing that hag Nancy grace should be made to go on tv and say she sorry for running her mouth . I know wishful thinking

    And from what I’ve been reading about Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease it’s not something usually caused or even aggravated by drug use anyway. His death looks to me like a totally natural phenomenon. There was a newscaster in my hometown that was a health nut. Ran everyday, ate right, no drugs or alcohol, yet he died from a heart attack. Heck, we almost lost Jerry Lawler due to a heart attack and it is public knowledge that he doesn’t drink, smoke, do drugs, or any of that. I don’t know what his diet is like. Being from Memphis I’m sure he gets his fair share of home-cooking. I may ask him next week at C2E2.

    But basically heart disease can strike any one of us at any time. I just hope this dies down because the children deserve better than to have his name dragged in the mud by scumbags like Nancy Grace. We can’t let her tarnish what was a fabulous send off for the Warrior. You couldn’t write a better ending for a movie.

    If anything this should be used a fodder to get her taken off the air. She isn’t worth the effort though.

    You know what I find funny when every a big movie star pass away you get the result in 6 to 8 weeks. Which means to me it is normally drug related death. Put Warrior you get the result one week later.Hey Ms. Nancy Grace why don’t you do some reporting on that. You people in the mainstream media so quick to say when a Pro Wrestler die it drugs but Hollywood been doing drugs for years and you never hear any reporting on that. Now onto the Warrior look it a real hard life to be a Pro Wrestler lot harder that we will every know. The told it takes on your body it very hard it why the Pro Wrestler now a day will tell you if you want to get in Pro Wrestling get an education first. In other words they are telling you very nice don’t do it. The Warrior had a long hard life but it had a story book ending that is for sure.

  • Jason Lentini

    Agreed. Maybe Nancy Grace will get this memo and recant the BS she was spewing. Probably not but it is wishful thinking.

  • D2K

    As I and pretty much all of us figured. Personally, I think he had been dealing with this situation for awhile and possibly knew his situation was terminal. I’m just glad that if he had to go out that he got to go out the way that he did. Smile on his face for four-days straight, tying up loose-ends, ending grudges, and reconnecting with the fans on last time. I wish the fans gave him a bigger ovation though on RAW. Oh well. Tonight’s tribute should be good.
