On Tuesday, April 8, 54 year old James Hellwig, better known by his ring name The Ultimate Warrior, was found dead outside his hotel in Arizona.  The Warrior made an appearance Monday night, April 7, on a wrestling program called Raw and was inducted to the wrestling Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 5.   An autopsy later that week reports that Warrior died from a heart disease that was said to be natural causes.  Hellwig was very dedicated to wrestling and especially wrestling fans.  He even legally changed his name to The Ultimate Warrior.
