    He looked SHAKY AS FUCK on Raw Monday night. He looked older, but he did look good, in the appearance way. Handsome feller. But something seemed to be up when he was in the ring.

    I'm betting stroke or heart attack.

    He sucked as a wrestler. The Iron Sheik was just on Opie and Anthony today saying what a jabroni he was. Still, I'm never happy to see anyone this side of Fred Phelps die, so RIP to him. He was entertaining. At least he made it into the WWE HOF this year. Kind of a pinnacle moment for him, maybe.

    Damn. I haven't followed wrestling for a very long time, but this guy was one of my favorites back in the '80's.

    I also noticed that he didn't look "right" this past weekend. During the Hall of Fame he limped a bit when his girls brought him out. And during his Raw segment, they didn't really show him walking to the ring or put on the Warrior trench coat. I'm sure they did this to make him look as good as possible given his apparent issues. Plus he had a real hard time shaking the ropes, which was an indication something was wrong since he always kept in great shape. Its true that he wasn't the same caliber as Bret Hart or Shawn Michaels, but he was still memorable, entertaining and very deserving of the weekend he had.

    Its nice to hear that over the weekend he mended/buried various hatchets with Kevin Nash, Hogan (...kinda), Jake the Snake, & the rest of the WWE.

    In some twisted fashion, its almost nice he passed when he did. He looked as though a giant weight was lifted from him and he truly looked happy being back in the wrestling world. I just feel sorry for his family. He really seemed like a great husband/father.

    Goodbye, Warrior. You've earned your rest.
