ultimate-warrior-hofI am in disbelief right now. I never thought I would ever be writing anything like this, but I feel that compelled to. I said it on Facebook, that the closest thing we will ever get to losing a Superhero is the passing of a professional wrestler. Tonight, a man that was a superhero to many passed away at the age of 54. His name was Jim Hellwig but you would know him better as The Ultimate Warrior. It is always weird when a hero of your passes away. It is like part of you goes along with it. I remember watching The Warrior run down to the ring and just keep running. I wish I had that much energy. You either a Hogan fan or a Warrior fan in the late 80s and early 90s. The Warrior was just inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this past weekend and even was on Monday Night Raw last night. Rest in Peace, Ultimate Warrior.

 

Here is a video from his last appearance from this past week on WWE Raw.

About the author

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
