The WWE community and wrestling world is still saddened by yesterday’s passing of the Ultimate Warrior who this past week celebrated his return to WWE as the head inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame and making his first appearance on ‘RAW’ in 18 years. Several wrestling stars have continued to share their thoughts online concerning the legendary Warrior and his passing.

After all these years I finally got 2 tell him that me shaking the ropes was an homage 2 him. Blessed to have had that moment. #onelife -@DaveBautista

Heartbroken. My sincerest condolences go out to The Warrior's family. Seeing how much he loved his daughters and his wife this weekend makes it all the more heartbreaking. The Ultimate Warrior was my favorite as a kid, and getting to speak to him this weekend was one of my favorite moments. He was so nice to me. #RIPWarrior -@WWEDanielBryan

Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: The wrestling world has been through a lot of big news in the last week with the Hall of Fame, a very eventful Wrestlemania 30, and a huge RAW but the passing of Ultimate Warrior makes it all seem so bittersweet. WWE will likely produce some type of on-air tribute to the Warrior on next Monday’s RAW on the USA Network with speciality programming to follow on the WWE Network.
