Wrestling legend, The Ultimate Warrior died from a massive heart attack. The Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s office declared the wrestlers death as “natural” on Monday, April 14. On his autopsy, the Warrior’s death is listed as “atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease, which in layman’s terms is basically heart disease.

According to the medical examiner’s office, they will still conduct a “death investigation.” A source in the office said, “They don’t just want to know the cause, it’s also important for them to figure out ‘how he got there’. They plan to do a full medical history report as well as a toxicology report to see if he had any drugs in his system when he died.”

The Ultimate Warrior, real name James Brian Hellwig, collapsed April 8 while walking with his wife at a Scottsdale hotel. He was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The tests will also reflect whether or not the Warrior had any steroids in his system at his time of death.
