WWE fans are mourning the loss of a legend today. On April 8, TMZ shared the news that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away at the age of 54. His real name is James Hellwig.

At this time, there is no news about what happened to James. He was just on TV last night on "Monday Night Raw." This was the first time that he had been on the show in a long time and everyone was really excited to see him. He was also inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame recently. It is shocking that he would just be showing back up and then he died at such a young age.

WWE did issue a statement saying, "WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior." They also shared a few facts about his career and then went on to send their condolences to his wife and two daughters that he left behind. Hopefully tomorrow more information will come out about the loss of Ultimate Warrior. He will be greatly missed by his fans.
