Ultimate Warrior reportedly 'clutched his chest' before collapsing; never recovered

WWE.com

Details continue to trickle out about his sudden death last night.

Entertainment site TMZ continues to be the main source for information concerning Warrior's shocking death last night in Arizona.

Their latest post says that law enforcement officials were told by witnesses that Warrior "clutched his chest" just before he collapsed at the hotel on Tuesday.  He was apparently walking in a hallway of the Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale with his wife Dana when he stopped , grabbed his chest and fell to the floor.

The source went on to say that he never recovered.

Other "sources connected to the situation" (TMZ doesn't state that these are the same law enforcement sources who provided the on the scene details, so presumably it's coming from elsewhere) told the site that officials believe Warrior suffered a "catastrophic medical event" such as a massive heart attack.  There is no evidence to show drugs or alcohol were a factor in his death.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner says that an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, April 10.
