PLAYERS: Ultimate Warrior

Via Larry Brown Sports:

The WWE is planning two special tributes to wrestling legend The Ultimate Warrior, who died suddenly on Tuesday night.

Warrior, who was 54, collapsed while walking at an Arizona hotel. The previous night he appeared on “RAW” and he was also inducted into the Hall of Fame over the weekend.

WWE is planning to have a special tribute to him on the upcoming episode of RAW with much more than a blank screen RIP tribute. The tribute will most likely showcase his greatest moments.

The organization is also putting together a special that will air on the new network Wednesday that TMZ says is tentatively called “Warrior: The Ultimate Legend.”

Warrior is well deserving of the honors.

It is Ok for him to kiss his boyfriend, but if you say something about a persons race it is wrong. I am glad I will not be here when these asses destroy us for good.
  • I guess he is, "The Ultimate Worm Food" now instead. Sorry...to soon?
