Ultimate Warrior Died From A Massive Heart Attack

TMZ is reporting that The Ultimate Warrior died from a massive heart attack, according to the medical examiner that conducted the autopsy last week.

The official cause of death was determined to be “Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease,” which is more commonly known as heart disease. Neither drugs nor alcohol were directly involved.

Warrior clutched at his chest before collapsing while walking down a hallway with his wife Dana last Tuesday at the Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ. He was transported to a local hospital by Scottsdale firefighters and pronounced dead.

Ultimate Warrior’s death happened less than 24 hours after appearing on last week’s Monday Night Raw following his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame and appearing live at Wrestlemania 30. He is survived by his wife Dana and their two daughters.

    With all due respect, that was rather obvious. Already reported was the fact that he was “clutching his chest.” Kinda couldn’t be anything else. Maybe the headline should mention that he had heart disease. That’s really the cause of his death. The heart attack was merely the outcome. Either way, I wonder if he knew he was sick.

    Gentlemen, there is a difference between “assuming” he died of a heart attack, based on the reports of him clutching his chest and collapsing, and “knowing” he died of a heart attack because of an Autopsy.

    Lets just respect the process and not be “know-it-all” distance diagnosticians like Nancy Grace
