​ROH Issues Statement On The Ultimate Warrior’s Death


ROH posted the following today…

The wrestling
world lost a true icon yesterday, the Ultimate Warrior was only 54 years

This past weekend the Warrior was inducted into the WWE’s Hall of
Fame, and Monday night the Warrior appeared for what would be his final time. In
his final and fitting words he said, “No WWE talent becomes a legend on their
own. Every mans heart one day beats it’s final beat, his lungs breathe their
final breath. And what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse though the
body of others. It makes them bleed deeper in something larger than life. Then
his essence, his spirit will be immortalized by the story tellers, by the
loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did
live forever.”

The influence of the Warrior is far reaching, this past
summer, Delirious & Jay Lethal paid tribute to not only the Ultimate
Warrior, but the Macho Man Randy Savage when they took on each other at “A Night
of Hoopla.”
