The wrestling business is in a state of shocking following the sudden passing of The Ultimate Warrior on Tuesday. News of his death began to make rounds shortly after this week's WWE Main Event/Smackdown taping concluded in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Obviously the timing of Warrior's passing makes it all the more tragic as he'd just spent the weekend as the headliner for the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame class with many members of the WWE roster meeting him for the first time. He was at this week's Raw taping, where he was very friendly with the workers backstage as several approached him to congratulate him on his Hall of Fame induction.

Fences were mended as well, with Warrior reconciling with Vince McMahon, Jake Roberts and others.

One thing I heard from several is how much Warrior's family meant to him, which was evident when he had his daughters introduce him for the WWE Hall of Fame. In addition to his daughters and his wife Dana, Warrior's mother was also in New Orleans for his induction.

Second to his family was all of the Ultimate Warrior fans, in which all reported positive experiences when encountering him over the weekend. We've heard from fans that met him on Tuesday morning at the airport in New Orleans as he took photos and signed autographs with anyone that asked.

Below are photos of Warrior and his family at Saturday's 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony:
