Results from wrestling legend James Hellwig’s autopsy will not be released just yet, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Hellwig, better known to legions of wrestling fans as The Ultimate Warrior, died Tuesday due to a “catastrophic medical event” outside of a hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy Thursday, but county spokeswoman Cari Gerchick said that the examiner’s office had no plans to release any preliminary findings. She did not say when any information would be released.

Gerchick also said that determining Hellwig’s cause of death would take longer than usual because his death appeared to be medical-related.
