The Ultimate Warrior looked like he was on the verge of death last weekend, appearing sweaty and in poor health, like he was about to completely unravel.

Witnesses say the WWE legend seemed to be in constant pain, to the point where anyone who came in contact with the wrestler noticed, according to TMZ.

Then, Monday night, when the Warrior did his signature rope shake after his big speech on Monday Night Raw, he looked like a shell of his former self.

Not only that, in what would be his final speech, he forebodingly said, "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath."

Just one night later, The Ultimate Warrior died suddently.

"We all felt like he looked like he was going to blow a gasket ... it was pretty easy to see," said a witness Monday night, and tragically, his fall was foretold.

The Ultimate Warrior was walking in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hotel Tuesday when he collapsed with chest pains; it is believed his cause of death was a heart attack.

Warrior (born James Hellwig) was just 54 years old. R.I.P.

His full RAW speech appears after the jump ...
