EXCLUSIVE

Ultimate Warrior DiesThe Ultimate Warrior "clutched his chest" moments before he collapsed at an Arizona hotel Tuesday afternoon ... this according to law enforcement sources who spoke with witnesses. 

TMZ has learned ... Warrior was walking down a hallway at the Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ and headed toward his car with his wife -- when he stopped, clutched his chest and went down. 

We're told Warrior never recovered. 

Sources connected to the situation tell us officials believe Warrior suffered a "catastrophic medical event" and so far, we're told there is no evidence to show drugs or alcohol were a factor in his death. All signs point to massive heart attack. 

We're told an investigation is underway. The Maricopa County Medical Examiner tells us the autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

Did he clutch his heart b/c he saw a gay couple?

Favorite wrestler as a kid but turns out in real life the guy was a bigot and homophobe. He "hated" other people.

This guy was a horrible human being in real life. A true bigot.

Warrior, the America which you stood for, and
which you sacrificed for, and which you were
mocked for, shall again Rise.
The Tyrants, from Wall St. to Washington D.C.,
shall meet their well-deserved Fascists fate.

JUSTICE, shall be SERVED.

While standing on blood mountain on the dark side of Jupiter the Warrior heard the call.But the Warrior does not walk Halls built by Fame.The Warrior walks Halls built of the bones of his ancestors and sits on a throne of the skulls of the vanquished.The Warrior will answer the call of the Warriors and arrive on the back of a phoenix.Not for some evil millionaire or a ring smelling of filth and greed.I will arrive because I have been summoned by the Warriors and it is their power that feeds the Warrior and once I have had my fill I will return to PARTS UNKNOWN!!! ....snarl...snort!

Steroids, lots of steroids. And by the look of him at the WWE hall of fame acceptance speech, he is still on them. Spot diagnosis: cardiomyopathy and heart disease due to years of steroid abuse, precipitating a massive myocardial infarction or aortic aneurysm
