The Ultimate Warrior died from a massive heart attack, his autopsy reveals.
James Hellwig, the WWE wrestling legend who passed away last week at 54, was given an official cause of death of “atherosclerotic/arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease” by the medical examiner, TMZ reported on Monday.
Neither drugs nor alcohol were involved in Hellwig’s death, leading officials to categorize it as “natural.”
The wrestling icon suffered the heart attack outside a hotel in Arizona on April 8; he was rushed to the hospital, but never recovered.
