WWE Legend, the Ultimate Warrior passed away at the age of 54 yesterday (April 8th, 2014). Warrior, born James Brian Hellwig, has been a staple in the bodybuilding world as well as the professional wrestling world for the better part of 3 decades.

The irony of his death coming so recently after his induction in the WWE Hall of Fame is not lost on the masses. Hellwig, who legally changed his name to Warrior to combat copyright issues, had a longstanding beef with WWE Chairman, Vincent McMahon. It was obvious the hatchet had been buried after the promo commercials started circulating early July 2013 of the latest installment of video games, WWE 2K14.

Although still a great loss in the entertainment world, it is great to know he passed away after receiving the greatest honor in the sports entertainment world. Many of Hellwigs' fellow wrestlers have had nothing but good things to say about him. His legend will live on forever!!!
