Warrior (aka The Ultimate Warrior and formerly James Hellwig before he legally changed his name in 1993) collapsed on April 8, 2014 while walking with his wife in this residential-style hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital at the age of 54.
Two days prior he was at Wrestlemania 30 as he had just been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He had only recently reconciled with Vince McMahon and the WWE, and the day before he died he made his first appearance on RAW in 18 years.
