The Ultimate Warrior, real name James Hellwig, passed away on Tuesday as first reported by a Tweet from Triple H. The Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and appeared at Wrestlemania on Sunday.

Hellwig was 54. Details about his passing have not yet been reported.

He also participated on this week’s Monday Night Raw with this incredibly ominous, if not eerie, speech that touched upon death and immortality through storytellers.

The WWE confirmed the news shortly after Triple H’s tweet.

Throughout his career the Warrior was subject to numerous death rumors, but this one appears to bes real and not  part of a storyline or “work.”

For wrestling fans in the late 80s and early 90s the Warrior was a phenomenon who burned brightly in feuds with Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and the Undertaker but disappeared from the scene almost as quickly as he arrived. The Warrior did claim the then WWF title from Hogan at Wrestlemania VI and became the first man to hold both the World Championship and Intercontinental belts at the same time.
