All signs point to a massive heart attack being the cause of the Ultimate Warrior’s tragic and sudden death on Tuesday. TMZ is reporting there is no evidence to show drugs or alcohol were a factor. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner.
I also want to make clear we are unaware of any problems with Warrior’s health leading up to his untimely demise. Warrior had agreed to a new contract with WWE, however, it was a multi-year deal where he was to act as an ambassador. Because of this, he was not subject to the stringent physical testing the company does for prospective in-ring talent.
