    He was my favorite wrestler as a kid. I actually meet him and Macho Man at the same time at MSG. I remember their necks were as thick as tree trunks. Steroids definitely caught up to both of them. :(

    Live fast, die young...apparently.

    So sad.

    More so, he appeared on RAW the night after Wrestlemania and addressed the crowd...

    Every man's heart one day beats its 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, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever.

    The next day he dropped dead. Blimey.

    It's almost like he knew something bad was about to happen.

    RIP Warrior.

    I saw this guy in a match when I was in Los Angeles. A friend took me to see the wrestling show and Warrior put manager Bobby Heenan into a weasel suit. This was my one and only experience with seeing wrestling live. The show was entertaining and as much, the audience itself that cheered on and on for the Warrior and various other wrestlers.

    I thought he retired in the early 90's. When it was still the WWF. That's when I stopped watching wrestling. Although I had to watch it a few times in the late 90's since some friends in high school still watched it. Up until that point I thought only children watched wrestling.

    RIP...

    Loved this guy as a kid, more so than Hulk Hogan. Very sad indeed.

    RIP fellow human.....I have no idea who this guy was.. That said, it sucks when someone 12 years younger than me dies. It makes me feel mortal, very mortal :(
