Ultimate Warrior Net Worth $2 Million

The Ultimate Warrior, born James Brian Hellwig, was a Professional American Wrestler with an estimated Net Worth around $2 million dollars during the time of his passing. He was born on June 16th 1959, the eldest of 5 kids. His career began in Bodybuilding where he competed in several competitions before receiving an invitation in 1985 to try out for Wrestling. His Wrestling introduction happened in 1986 for the now defunct World Class Championship Wrestling league where he won the title. Less than ONE year after joining the WWF, he became the Intercontinental Champion which he held for over 2 years. At Wrestlemania VI, he conquered the then Champ Hulk Hogan and became the first and just Wrestler in the Annals of the league to concurrently hold both titles. Nearly all of them failed due to clash involving the league and him, one in particular being the hallmark of his name once he’d leave the WWF/WWE. Despite all that ruckus, Warrior was finally inaugurated to the WWE Hall Of Fame at Wrestlemania XXX on April 5th 2014. He made his first Monday Night Raw appearance in more than 20 years the very next day to ecstatic fans encouraging him and chanting his name. He died 2 days later on April 8th 2014 of causes yet unknown as of the writing.

8One of the longest-running pro wrestling myths states that he is actually the second wrestler to portray the Ultimate Warrior, as the original died of steroid use in the 1980s. Evidence used to support this myth is that the "second Warrior" had lighter hair and was bulkier in physique. However, this is just one of many pro wrestling myths with little factual basis.
