Major U.S. Newspaper Claimed The Ultimate Warrior Was Dead
We noted yesterday that authors of the New York Post's story on the passing of Randy Savage erroneously listed former WWE Champion Ultimate Warrior among other prominent wrestlers from the 1980s to have died.

They wrote: "Savage's passing follows the deaths of several other prominent wrestlers from the 1980s, including Yokozuna, Ultimate Warrior, Bam Bam Bigelow and Savage's one-time female partner and wife, Miss Elizabeth."

The article, which is available at NYPost.com, has since removed the Ultimate Warrior mention.

The death of Ultimate Warrior has been a common misconception dating back to 1992 when he appeared at WrestleMania VIII following a lengthy sabbatical with shorter hair and a less muscular physique.

Warrior himself acknowledged the misconception in the introductory message of his official website, UltimateWarrior.com.

He wrote, "I am not dead. Nor have I ever died. Don't laugh. There are plenty of kooks (too many) who write and inform me that I am or that I have -- and then demand I write back and confirm it!"
