On April 9, 2014 the breaking news on every major media outlet in the United States was the death of Jim Hellwig, the Ultimate Warrior, at the age of 54. Warrior’s death was shocking as it came just days after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. The loss of this industry icon was deeply saddening and also somehow seemed to be part of a larger scheme of destiny. Hellwig’s character the Ultimate Warrior often spoke of destiny, something Hellwig wrote about on his blog “Warrior’s Machete” in April of 2007:
“Ultimate Warrior believed that life meant more than just a purposeless passing of time, an insignificant trek from its birth to its death. He believed in destiny, not coincidence, and ideals that were greater and longer living than just the time period of his one life. No one gave E these creative expressions — WWE Legends shirt they came from inside.”
