This past weekend was one to remember. The WWE and the Ultimate Warrior, James Hellwig, had fixed their differences and he was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame.

The ceremony was Saturday night, and it was one to remember. He started it off with his snarl which fans grew to love. He didn’t don his normal face paint but we all knew what we were watching.

Warrior also appeared at WrestleMania 30 on Sunday when the WWE announced to the fans the entire Hall-of-Fame class of 2014.

Monday night, the Warrior appeared at Monday Night Raw to talk to the fans. Warrior stuck with his gimmick, putting on a paper mask that looked like his face paint he so famously wore to the ring. Below is his appearance from Monday Night Raw.

According to CBSSports.com:

WWE confirmed the news on its website late Tuesday, though no official cause of death was given.

“WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior.

“We are grateful that just days ago, Warrior had the opportunity to take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and was also able to appear at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw to address his legions of fans,” the statement read, in part.

Ultimate Warrior was found dead Tuesday evening. He was 54. Hellwig officially changed his name to Warrior in 1993.

Below are his finest interviews.
