Recently inducted WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior (born James Hellwig) died Tuesday, just one day after his final public appearance on WWE Raw.
His appearance was a festive one, as he donned a mask that resembled his iconic face paint, but some his final words are prophetic when viewing the cameo in hindsight.
Here’s some of what he told the New Orleans crowd Monday night:
“Every man’s heart one day beats a final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others; it makes them believe deeper in something larger than life; than his essence, his spirit will be immortalized.”
