I'm in shock and disbelief. I get home from work and on my home page I saw the headline but had to do a double take. No way he is gone after just being on Raw. It'll take all night for this to sink in.

 

R.I.P. Warrior

I think Benoit was supposed to be at a PPV on that Sunday night (but never made it), and was found dead Monday morning.

wouldnt call  dying and killing yourself the same thing 

 

 

warrior looked out of it   monday night. I mean he could not shake the ropes that long.  Though maybe he was just tired . guess not..  Wonder if he had a stroke or something monday or was having one.   He did not even sound the same  from saturday night   to monday raw  (speech sounded slurred in a way)     Even look at his eyes in the video. They look glazzy


WOOOO I STINK

Saw this on the Yahoo front page when I got home from taking my daughter from school and could not believe it..... Just.... wow.

 

Also, this has to really put a major damper on Daniel and Brie's wedding on Friday for sure.

And to think there were people that wanted Warrior to do 1 more run down to the ring shake rope stint. If he was in that bad of shape i wouldnt want to know what would happen. Has there been anyone else in the wwe where you literally just saw him not 24 hours ago and dead the next.

The DVD was pretty good. I just watched it last night=-\ I skipped through all the matches just to hear his insight on the different matches going on.

KillerRamen and mitch079 hit it. Clearly seems to be something heart-related, given how he appeared over the last few days (harried, sweaty, gasping for air despite little more than talking) and how he died (just straight up collapsed).

 

I'm not really upset. I liked him as a wrestler, but I'm not his friend. Just a dude who liked to see him on TV.

 

At least in his case he and Vince got to make amends, whereas Savage and Vince never had the chance.

I was a huge fan when I was a kid and I still remember that Saturday morning when The Undertaker threw him in a casket that Bearer locked up. Watching the paramedics put him on a stretcher really freaked me the Fuck out. I pretty much gave up watching wrestling after that. Monday morning was filled with rumors about Ultimate Warrior being dead.

But yeah, you could tell that he was really struggling in his HoF speech.

This got buried for obvious reasons in the old post since the Warrior news happened immediately after, but don't sleep on Wyatts/Shield from Main Event. As good as their other matches and probably the best finishing sequence.

When I heard this morning I didn't believe it. Not too many celebrity deaths effect me but after it sunk in I sat on my couch with my coffee in disbelief for like 10 minutes. Damn... this really hurts

 

His 30 second win against the Honky Tonk Man made him my favorite as a kid. And I still remember the Summerslam he and Macho Man teamed up to create the Ultimate Maniacs. As a kid that shit was legendary to me. Two of the biggest forces making an alliance. It was unstoppable like Superman and Goku teaming up.

You may be gone, but I still feel the rush every time I play your entrance music in my mind.

Long Live The Warrior! You will be missed.

Oh no that's awful :(
 
Ultimate Warrior was my favorite wrestler when I watched WWE back in the days with my dad.  Loved his entrance.  One of the best of all time.  I thought he had a really good HOF speech. He was really humbled at his speech and I'm just glad he got to do it in time.  Hearing more and more old school wrestlers pass away is actually a sad reminder of what these guys sacrifice to provide for their family and fans. 

His match against Hogan was an all timer for me. I can't recall the Macho Man and UM tag team, but that's an awesome pic.
 
RIP Warrior

Network is doing some kind of tribute tonight, although it looks like it may just be his HoF & Raw speeches along with his Mania match against Hogan.

I got around to checking out that WCW Theme release from a week or two ago. It is without a doubt the biggest fucking ripoff bullshit theme comp release ever (and I'm someone who bought WWF The Music Vol 2 on CD when it came out).

Don't even know where to start. It's 4 "discs" of content - they manage to get the themes for Coach Buzz Stern, Mona, and Sam Grieco (whoever the Fuck he is) in there, but they leave out most of the very few somewhat unique or memorable themes that they had in that company (Mortis, Wrath during his original run, Raven, NWO B-team, etc). There are mislabeled themes, themes that guys never used, three fucking versions of the Mr Wonderful theme (one with vocals, one instrumental, one slightly different instrumental, the latter two were used by The Maestro and even THAT is labeled wrong as "Gorgeous George"), two Alex Wright themes, neither of which he ever used, two versions of Madusa's theme, and the version of the Sting theme is the one from that shitty WCW CD that has voice samples of him yelling about showtime or whatever. Yeah. thing is a fucking mess. With what's actually worthwhile in there they could have cut it to two discs and still had room to spare.

The WWE release wasn't bad though. Aside from including the incredibly worthless Greg Valentine face theme, it's a decent collection. Nice to have a couple of the Piledriver songs in high quality now (ie Demolition), along with stuff that had not been released before at all.

This is the only Alex Wright theme that ever mattered, imo.

I actually said "what the Fuck?" out loud when I read Triple H's tweet. I was scrolling through my feed, and several people had confirmed it by then.

 

I actually haven't seen many Warrior matches. My first introduction to him was at Wrestlemania XII. Regardless, he was one of my favorite gimmicks. Hearing his speech Saturday evening, then on Monday.. just.. unreal. I, too, thought HHH was hacked, then I thought that maybe he had killed himself or something and the speech on Monday was his own eulogy.

 

Just surreal. All I can think about is his family and how proud they looked Saturday.. they don't deserve this pain. No one does.

And with the death of Ultimate Warrior, that leaves one sole survivor of what I consider to be the Big 3 who helped build the WWF/WWE into what it is today. Whacha gonna do, brother, when Father Time comes to getchu.

I don't expect Hogan to die for a while. When he does though, that's going to be rough.

Watching the Network stream (WM 6). I probably would not have believed you if you told me Dusty would outlast everyone else in that match (Liz, Sapphire, Sherri, Savage).
