The wrestling world was shocked to its core late Tuesday night after the announcement of the Ultimate Warrior’s passing was made public.
“We are all so sad that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away. Our heart is with his wife Dana and his two daughters,” said WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon, who just this weekend posed for a photo hugging the Warrior backstage, a photo which was distributed online by Stephanie McMahon’s Twitter.
“#RIPUltimateWarrior Your strength of character is to be admired. There will never be anyone like you. Your spirit lives on in your family,” Stephanie McMahon added.
“Saddened to announce the passing of the Ultimate Warrior. Icon and friend. My sympathy to his wife Dana and his daughters,” wrote Triple H, who was the brains behind the Warrior/WWE reunion lately.
Tons of current and former WWE Superstars including Hulk Hogan, Chris Jericho, Chyna, Bella Twins, JBL, Jim Ross, Bill Goldberg and hundreds of others passed their condolences on their official Twitter accounts, all in disbelief over what happened.
