Connor died less than a month later and weeks following the tragic passing of The Ultimate Warrior. The Warrior Award was established to honor someone who has “exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of WWE Hall of Famer, The Ultimate Warrior.”
