No findings released on death of Ultimate Warrior

PHOENIX — Authorities in Phoenix don't expect to release any results just yet from an autopsy on the body of former pro wrestler The Ultimate Warrior.

Maricopa County spokeswoman Cari Gerchick says the county Medical Examiner's Office had no plans to issue any preliminary findings on the autopsy, which was done Thursday.

The 54-year-old wrestler, whose given name was James Hellwig, collapsed Tuesday while walking with his wife to their car at a Scottsdale hotel and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Scottsdale police say there were no signs of foul play.

Gerchick says determining the cause of death would take longer because Hellwig's death appeared to be medical-related. She could not say when any findings would be released.

Hellwig was one of pro wrestling's biggest stars in the late 1980s.
