WWE: 10 Talking Points Of The Ultimate Warrior's Career And Legacy

RIP Warrior...

The sudden death of Ultimate Warrior at the age of 54 is truly a shocking tragedy. The iconic WWE superstar had only days earlier been inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, he had finally mended bridges with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and signed a WWE contract for an ambassador role. Fans had received Warrior back into the WWE family with choruses of cheers, we were looking forward to seeing him appear in WWE for years to come in occasional segments. What a shame that such dreams are instantly stung with bitter reality. The WWE will now face the typical press moral panic about wrestler fatalities at a young age, in a week when WWE had an extraordinary successful WrestleMania and huge Raw rating, the only story now is Warrior's death. It overshadows everything, the Undertaker's first WrestleMania loss in 22 years is a superficial non-story compared to this. WWE will now be moving the power of their machine behind honouring Warrior and answering accusations that the death of a wrestler somehow has something to do with them. This latest feature will take a look at the career of Warrior, examining the legacy he leaves behind. He was at times a controversial figure, so much so that WWE released a DVD on him entitled 'The self destruction of Ultimate Warrior', but in truth, his positive force in the industry was undeniable. This is a man who was very much part of the pop culture boom which put Vince McMahon in a position to have what he has now. Warrior was the key WWF character in his own right for a while, a fan favourite who was all over the t-shirts of kids everywhere. Here are 10 biggest talking of his career and legacy...
