The shockwaves are still be felt by the untimely death of The Ultimate Warrior on Tuesday. Mick Foley posted a statement of sorts on his Facebook page, which you can check out here.

Meanwhile, Triple H was interviewed by ESPN.com regarding Warrior’s death, which you can view here.

Wrestling News World.com posted the Tweets from Warrior’s fellow 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductees Mr. T. Lita and Scott Hall. You can see those by clicking here.

The WWE Network paid homage yesterday to the Warrior, airing his Hall of Fame speech and promo from Monday’s Raw as well.

TMZ.com ran a story yesterday stating that many that spend time with Warrior over the weekend said he seemed in constant pain and seemed uncomfortable. For more, click here.

Finally, here the statement the Scottsdale Police Department made following Warrior’s passing:

On April 8 at 5:50 pm 54-year-old “Warrior” James B Hellwig collapsed while walking with his wife to their car at the Gainy Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz. Scottsdale Fire transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead soon after arrival. At this point in the investigation, it appears as though a catastrophic medical condition caused his death.

I would like to once again offer my condolences to Warrior’s family as he leaves a wife and two children behind. Whether you liked him or not as a performer, you have to respect what he accomplished in pro wrestling. More importantly, 54 years old is much too young to pass way.
