The legendary WWE wrestler known as “The Ultimate Warrior” died at the age of 54, on Monday just days after he was inducted into the sport’s Hall of Fame. The Ultimate Warrior was known for his neon mask and energetic ring entrances, when he would run full speed down the entrance ramp and run circles around the ring before shaking the ropes “like a man possessed,” the WWE said.
The WWE called the wrestler, who officially changed his name to Warrior in 1993, “one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever.”
A big wrestling fan himself Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips took to Twitter to remember the former WWE Champion.
