Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of the Ultimate Warrior, a death that came out of nowhere after Warrior returned to WWE during WrestleMania XXX weekend.
In a message poster on her Twitter, his widow Dana Warrior said that Warrior’s bags from that weekend remain unpacked in her house. “If I unpack those bags he will never be here to repack them,” Dana wrote. She also added that the toughest part of the whole year was when WWE asked her to dig up his ring gear so they could showcase them at Axxess during the WrestleMania 31 weekend. “I am so glad that I did now and was entirely delighted to do when they asked..until I began the process,” she said, adding that she cried all the way through.
The Ultimate Warrior passed away on Wednesday, April 8, 2014, after he fell down to the floor holding his chest while he and his wife were making their way to the car from a hotel in Arizona to go back home. The cause of death was a heart attack and it was classified as a natural death according to the medical examiner’s report.
