Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports spoke with Scottsdale police spokesman Sergeant Mark Clark about The Ultimate Warrior’s death and he was issued the following statement.
“On April 8 at 5:50PM 54-year-old “Warrior” James B Hellwig collapsed while walking with his wife to their car at the Gainy Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. 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.”
Warrior passed away yesterday after he arrived from a weekend in New Orleans where he was honored at the Hall of Fame ceremony, at WrestleMania, and then spoke on Monday Night RAW live.
