• Ultimate Warrior Cut His Final WWE Promo 6 Years Ago Today (Video)
6 Years ago today, WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior appeared on RAW after WrestleMania 30 and cut his final WWE promo (as he passed away the very next day at the age of 54).
You can watch his final promo below:
Below is the transcript of his final promo:
“No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own.
Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.
You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend markers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back I see many potential legends. Some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them.
You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. Ultimate.
You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of the Ultimate Warrior will run forever!”
