Sting Releases Statement On The Death Of The Ultimate Warrior

Sting posted the following on Facebook about the death of The Ultimate Warrior:

“Mourning the loss ofSting & Ultimate Warrior 1985 Jim Hellwig. I don’t believe anyone has ever published this picture before today. The snapshot was taken two days before Thanksgiving in 1985, as we prepared to leave my house in Newhall, California and embark on a career in wrestling.

Jim always challenged me to strive at being the best, and I’ll forever be grateful for the encouragement and motivation he provided.

I was looking forward to catching up with him, and I’m saddened we didn’t have the opportunity before he passed. My heart goes out to his wife Dana and their two daughters, and they will remain in my prayers.”
