Breaking News: The Ultimate Warrior Passes Away

R.I.P. Ultimate WarriorThis has to be the most surreal post we've ever had on this site in its 7 year existence; just 24 hours after The Ultimate Warrior made his return to RAW after an 18 year absence, the newly inducted WWE Hall of Famer passed away on Tuesday night at the age of 54 as confirmed by WWE.com.

Just this past Saturday night, The Ultimate Warrior made his triumphant return to WWE as his induction headlined the 2014 Hall of Fame ceremony.  He also appeared before the 75,000 fans at the Superdome in New Orleans along with the rest of the Hall of Fame class at WrestleMania 30; then last night, The Warrior made what will be his final appearance as he returned to RAW, donning his signature trench coat and an Ultimate Warrior mask as he gave a speech in his signature persona that was almost eerie now that he is no longer with us just 24 hours later.

The Undertaker's Legendary Streak Ends at WrestleMania 30

The Undertaker's Streak EndsWrestleMania 30 was an event that delivered on many levels; in recent years it's felt like each year's hype for WrestleMania exceeds what takes place, but this year WWE really delivered an event that actually exceeded the hype.  One event in particular delivered a moment that will never be forgotten in the annals of WWE and WrestleMania history - the end of The Undertakers historic undefeated streak.

Leading up to WrestleMania 30 I was firmly convinced that The Undertaker would extend his streak to 22-0 without much chance of anything different.  I watched live as The Undertaker defeated Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania 7 and every one of his victories since.  It seemed that Undertaker getting past young lions like Randy Orton and Edge at WrestleManias over the years showed that the streak would remain a solid part of WrestleMania, and if it were to ever be broken it would be to a similar young lion that would "receive the torch" so to speak; even the thoughts of John Cena eventually ending the streak seemed like a possibility since he would be the remaining "top star" to challenge it.  All of these thoughts added to the utter shock felt by the wrestling world as The Undertaker was defeated cleanly by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30.

Will WWE Fans Get Their Magic Moment with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30?

Daniel Bryan WWE Champion WrestleMania 30It's WrestleMania week and WWE has created the mega-buzz that would be expected for the 30th incarnation of it's signature event.  From Axxess and the Hall of Fame to the big event itself, WrestleMania 30 is the biggest event of the wrestling year, and without a shadow of a doubt Daniel Bryan is the Superstar that fans can't get enough of going into the event.

A year ago it would have been hard to imagine that we would be here writing about Daniel Bryan's popularity being on the same level as that of a Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan, but that's exactly what's happened over the course of the year.  The "Yes Movement" has taken over the wrestling world and basically forced Daniel Bryan into the main event picture of WrestleMania.

It's Official: Hulk Hogan Set to Return to WWE and Will Host WrestleMania 30

Hulk Hogan Returns at WrestleMania 30

The rumors have circulated ever since his departure from TNA, and now it's official: Hulk Hogan is returning to WWE this Monday night on RAW and will be the host of WrestleMania 30.

It's only fitting that one of the most iconic figures in WWE and WrestleMania history will be on hand for the 30th edition of wrestling's Super Bowl, and now we know the role he will play.  Being Hogan's physical condition won't allow him to see much in-ring action, there is no doubt that Hulk still brings a huge presence to "WrestleMania season" and will enhance things like only he can do.  The nostalgia factor alone in having the guy that was carrying the company during WrestleMania 1 involved in this mega event will make it must-see for many.

Having Hulk in a "host" role for the big event opens up a lot of possibilities as far as interaction with current stars to set up their matches for 'Mania, which will undoubtedly see any current stories enhanced by Hulk's involvement. It remains to be seen how Hulk will be involved on this Monday's RAW, but the buzz created by his return is positioned perfectly to excite people even more for Monday's launch of the WWE Network.
