Oh....let's wait for confirmation on this one and make sure H's account hasn't been hacked.
The Cageside Seats story, based solely on Triple H's tweet, isn't confirmation.
EDIT: Oh, crap - I guess this is probably confirmation:

I am in agreement this seems very odd. Is there any way this means the character is dead? I thought to myself while watching this weekend that the warrior did not look well, but how many past Superstars do?
If this is true, this is just one more blow to my childhood. The Ultimate Warrior was one of my favorites before becoming jaded with workrate and smarkness.
This with the end of the streak, along with the meeting of the big three in the ring at WrestleMania really symbolizes for me the end of what connected myself to what made me a fan to begin with.
If this is true, I hope he found the peace he was looking for, and may God lift his family in their time of loss.
Thank you Warrior for inspiring a kid from Indiana to believe anything is possible and entertaining me to the end.
You know, as much hate as he gets, HHH had to work his ass off to get Warrior to let them induct him and bring him back into the fold. There was so much bad blood between both sides, and them being able to bury the hatchet and get him not only into the HOF but to be able to cut a promo on Raw, was obviously a great deal of patience and negotiating.
Otherwise we'd get the ten second RIP image at the start of Smackdown and everybody would be upset that they didn't get to see him one more time.
It's a damn shame he died that young. It's a horrible thought that he leaves behind young kids and a wife.
I'm just dumbfounded.

After more thought....a part of me wonders if they all knew he didn't have much time left. The HOF, the new DVD, and then the promo. Like maybe this past Monday they gave him a mic and told him "say what you say" - and he said it.
We really won't know until more details I guess. I feel bad for speculating :\
I am surprised by his sudden passing. I thought it was unusual they had him do a speech on Raw though, but also thought it was nice since Warrior hadn't been on Raw in so long. While I was never a big fan, I appreciate what he brought to the business. RIP
Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... Seems to me this is just an incredible case of sad cosmic timing. Steroids always get you in the end - it was true for Eddie and so many others, and it looks like it was no different for Warrior. Maybe you can say that Warrior had a feeling his time was running out (he certainly did NOT look all that well to me last night), but to me, the tone of his promo was no different from the promos he'd cut in his prime. (And it's astounding we got the promo at all, because I'm pretty Taker's concussion left him physically unable to appear last night as planned and they threw Warrior out for that promo to help fill that time.)
I'm just glad that Warrior and Vince were able to reconcile and that Warrior got one more moment in the sun before his time was up. And while I disagreed with a number of Warrior's stances in this life, I sincerely hope he's at peace in the next one.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
Wow. Just...Wow. I was shocked to see him walk with a limp of some kind at the HOF and at Raw. Didn't expect that guy to deteriorate. He looked old but good. Did NOT expect to read this when I woke up.
I am glad he got to make peace and get the spot he deserves as one of wrestling's great characters. Despite his long speech and somewhat rambling he was saner and more...human? than I'd seen in a long time. He seemed so grateful to the fans for everything and appeared really happy with who/where he was in life with a family around him.
While Austin has been out of the ring for longer than the Rock had, the fans have also seen a lot more of Austin over the years, as he's still been appearing at least a few times a year on WWE programming.
