Well, I just found out that the Ultimate Warrior is dead.
For those who don't know who that is, he was a WWE Legend and former pro-wrestler.
He was the guy who instantly grabbed fan support for his wild running to the ring entrance, bouncing off the ropes like Speedball, and shaking the ropes like a mad man.
Sure he wasn't a technical wrestler. But he was flashy, with his wild attire and crazier face paint.
He was a product of his time and era, but damn what a time it was. Especially for a kid like me during the Wrestling boom of the 80's.
Here's some clips of the Warrior is his day:
His famous Wrestlemania 6 match against Hulk Hogan, in a true passing of the torch moment:
Of course he was also famous for his unintentionally funny as fuck, whacked out promos as well:
This was his most infamous, rambling on about a burning plane and shit.
(King know what I'm talking about;)
I wouldn't say I was a huge fan, but I was a fan nonetheless. Hell, I bought the action figures and even a Ultimate Warrior comic book he made back in '96.
Just sad all around to hear, especially since it was only last Saturday that he was officially inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Prayers go out to his family and loved ones of course.
