According to an Apr. 9 report from ABC News, WWE Hall of Famer and pro wrestling legend The Ultimate Warrior has passed away at the age of 54.

The entire WWE community is surprised and upset to learn of the passing of The Ultimate Warrior, one of the most amazing WWE Superstars in the history of the promotion.

The Ultimate Warrior, real name James Brian Hellwig, began wrestling in 1987, and he quickly emerged into one of the top stars in the game.

WWE and WWF fans loved The Ultimate Warrior's high-energy wrestling style, as well as his charismatic promo videos. The Ultimate Warrior is perhaps most famous for defeating Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI, and for his decades-long feud with the Hulkster.

WWE Universe is shocked to learn of his passing, especially since The Ultimate Warrior looked to be in great health at this year's WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony in New Orleans.

The Ultimate Warrior's mother, wife and children attended the ceremony, and he walked off the stage to a rousing applause after delivering an incredible speech.

The Ultimate Warrior was part of the WWE's 2014 Hall of Fame class, and he was perhaps the biggest star of the event.

He even came out to a nice applause during Wrestlemania 30 itself, as the crowd serenaded him with a chant in his name.

So far, the cause of The Ultimate Warrior's death has not been announced. Thoughts and prayers go out to The Ultimate Warrior's family at this time, as well as to the millions of Warrior fans across the globe.
