A legend in the world of wrestling - and these his final words:

"No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised. "In the back I see many potential legends. Some with warrior spirits and you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and the intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends as well. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans and the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever."

Rest in Peace Ultimate Warrior!

His sudden passing the day after appearing live on Monday Night Raw was a shock. A truly legend of wrestling, may the Ultimate Warrior rest in peace.

For me personally he came from a time where wrestling was literally too "cartoonish".

Good on him for what he accomplished. Maybe some day we get to the bottom of why these guys depart the earth so early.

Given that he retired at the relatively young age of 36, I have to wonder if there were some underlying physical problems that may have contributed to his untimely passing.

At 36 his body had been through a lifetime of abuse especially back then.

Definately a hard career on the body. I'm sure the roids didn't help much either.

He appeared to be winded and wheezing a bit during his appearance on the last Monday Night Raw.

For those who are wondering.... I will remind those that have forgotten that I used to be a pre-wrestling referee. This was back in the days when wresting was "cartoonish" in some ways, and the messaqge from the big boys (Vince McMahon) was be larger than life. You can You-Tube Hulk Hogan coming to the rescue of Bob Backlund against the wild Samoans. This was Hogan's first WWF appearence. Look how small he was compared to his hay day which started only months later. With that message coming in loud and clear, all the wrestlers and would-be and wanna-be wrestlers all tried to be larger than life. Just as in the Stone Cold Steve Austin era, many small time wrestlers shaved their heads and put on attitudes. It was all coming from Titan Tower.

This is when the moves started getting bigger, the bulging muscles started getting bigger, and the phychology of wrestling began to take a back seat. People like RIc FLair, with his incredible mic skills and charisma, managed to hold on, but many either steeped up or faded out. This lead to the two biggest problems in wrestler logevity; steroids and pain killers. Between the two, and other drugs thrown in, along with many having indescriminate sex as they traveled the country/world, the wrestler's bodies came up second best.

One of the smart ones, Leaping Lanny Poffo, took his turn with steroids, hated them and stopped fast. His physique failed quickly at that point, and not being larger than life, out he went.

Rowdy ROddy Piper once said, "I have no illusions about this business, I'll never live to see 60." I believe at this point he has, that or he is certainly close. He looks pretty good too, but he was never a big roid man. He was a drunk, and he cleaned up in the 90's (god bless him for that)

Injuries inspire pain killers, and need inspired steroids. In the old days (1950's or before) a wrestler had as much chance of a serious injury as a football player or maybe rugby. I cringe everytime I watch the tape of Mick foly coming off the top of the cage. The first time he landed well as planned, but it still had to hurt like hell. The second time was an accident. He landed on one leg which went under him. How he walked away I have no clue. But he did.

I'll get off the soapbox now.

Thanks for that.

I was bummed when Ultimate Warrior beat Hogan because I grew up on those cartoons where Hulk was the star. Also had a VHS of early Hogan when he was still a villain. I liked the characters back then. The Berserker coming in with his Viking sword (wish he'd lasted longer), The Undertaker with Paul Bearer, all of it. I have a bunch of the old WWF figures in the basement that I inherited from my Grandpa. I even have one of Jesse Ventura, who my Dad served with in the Navy, which is surreal. Piper and Undertaker are still favorites.

My all-time favorite has always been the legend, Walter "Killer" Kowalski.

I got to see the Bushwackers fight the Legion of Doom at the old Spokane Coliseum. Hulk Hogan also had a handicapped match against that sumo guy with the sweaty butt attack and "Typhoon" (formerly Tugboat). Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake was also there. One of my Mom's friends who was a female bodybuilder got a picture of Hogan and Beefcake at her gym because they went there to work out the morning of the event. She gave me a copy of the pic but I don't have it anymore. I do, however, still have the Hulk Hogan "Python Power" bandana that I bought there Smile
