The Ultimate Warrior, one of the world’s most iconic and beloved wrestlers, died this week from a massive heart attack, new reports have suggested. It was confirmed that the former WWF (WWE) superstar collapsed on Tuesday at a hotel in Arizona and never recovered.
It has since come to light by way of eyewitness accounts that the Warrior was seen “clutching” his chest just before he fell to the ground, suggesting as suspected that the star suffered a heart attack. He was walking in the direction of his car from the Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale with his wife at the time.
No official report has yet been published indicating the cause of Warrior’s death, though sources for TMZ have spoken of what’s being called a “catastrophic medical event”. There’s nothing to link the wrestler’s death with alcohol or drug use, with all evidence suggesting he suffered a sudden and fatal heart attack.
His autopsy will be carried out today with an official statement to follow.
