The Ultimate Warrior wiki & biography:

The Ultimate Warrior, bornJames Brian Hellwig, was a Professional American Wrestler with an estimated Net Worth around $2 million dollars during the time of his departure. Warrior is one of the very most iconic figures in professional wrestling, having been a 2 time Intercontinental Champion in the WWE (then called WWF) as well as being the World Champion when he defeated Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI. He was born on June 16th 1959, the eldest of 5 children. His career began in Bodybuilding where he competed in several contests before receiving an invitation in 1985 to try out for Wrestling. His Wrestling debut happened in 1986 for the now defunct World Class Championship Wrestling league where he won the title. In 1987, he joined the World Wrestling Federation and made his television debut as The Ultimate Warrior where he quickly gained acclaim for the high energy shown both on and off the ring. Less than ONE year after joining the WWF, he became the Intercontinental Champion which he held for over 2 years. At Wrestlemania VI, he defeated the then Champion Hulk Hogan and became the first and just Wrestler in the History of the league to concurrently hold both titles. He first left the WWF in 1991 and had several attempted returns and comebacks to the league. Nearly all of them failed due to clash between the league and him, one in particular being the hallmark of his name once he’d leave the WWF/WWE. Despite all that ruckus, Warrior was eventually inaugurated to the WWE Hall Of Fame at Wrestlemania XXX on April 5th 2014. He made his first Monday Night Raw appearance in over 20 years the very next day to excited fans encouraging him and chanting his name. He died 2 days later on April 8th 2014 of causes yet unknown as of the writing.
Warrior (born James Brian Hellwig; June 16, 1959 — April 8, 2014) was an American professional wrestler, who wrestled most magnificently underneath the ring name The Ultimate Warrior. He was best known for his appearances in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) from 1987 to 1991 and again in 1992 and 1996, in addition to his stint in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1998.

While in the WWF, he became a two time WWF Intercontinental Champion and won the WWF Championship when he pinned Hulk Hogan in the main event at WrestleMania VI, making him the only wrestler in the annals of the institution to hold both the WWF Championship and the Intercontinental Championship at precisely the same time. Warrior retired from professional wrestling in 1998 and embarked on a public speaking profession, but wrestled one final match in Spain in 2008.

Warrior expired on April 8, 2014, at the age of 54. Within the preceding three days he was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame, appeared at WrestleMania XXX, and made his final public appearance on “Raw”.

The Warrior was heralded as the wrestler to end up being the largest star of the 1990s, along with the successor to Hulk Hogan, who had remained wrestling’s biggest star throughout the 1980s. Adhering to several confrontations with Hogan, most notably at the 1990 Royal Rumble, the Warrior was written in as Hogan’s adversary in the main event for WrestleMania VI in the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario. The match was billed as “The Ultimate Challenge”, as both Hogan’s WWF Heavyweight Tournament and Warrior’s Intercontinental Championship were on the line. Warrior pinned Hogan after a Warrior Splash to become the only wrestler to hold both championships concurrently.
