Ultimate Warrior Autopsy Results: Fatal Heart Attack

ultimate warrior death

Authorities have revealed what killed the Ultimate Warrior one week ago, and it’s just as we thought: heart attack.

Last Tuesday, April 8, James B. Warrior (his real, legal name) clutched his chest and collapsed while walking to his car with his wife outside their Arizona hotel. Soon after he was rushed to the hospital, but he never regained consciousness.

The official cause of death, according to the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, is atherosclerotic/arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease, which is a fancy way of saying heart disease. That means his death is classified as “natural,” meaning drugs and alcohol were not directly involved.

Of course, one does have to wonder weather years of drug use might have been indirectly involved by contributing to the man’s heart problems. It’s certainly no secret that wrestling stars don’t always come by their muscle mass naturally.
