Apparently he collapsed while walking to the car with his wife. He didn't look well on Monday I know that

Yeah... I assumed those were his daughters that walked him out for the HOF. Just awful.

It's almost like he felt he got the respect he finally deserved by everyone getting into the HOF and his body just told him that was it.

Just awful.

Truly one of the unique guys in the business, and holds a special place with me cause I basically grew up with the guy when I was a kid watching.

That's the unbelievable thing to me, that he died right after making peace with the WWE, basically being the non in-ring centerpiece of the HoF/Mania weekend and RAW followup.

I watched his induction speech and thought about his daughters and how he mentioned being a proud father to them right at the beginning of his speech. This is sad to me, as I was a huge Warrior fan in the late 80's-early 90's. Sad.

This is really weird. I always felt bad for the guy and how things turned out for him, even if he was pretty nuts from most accounts. This is sad. At least he got to have one last hurrah, so to speak. RIP

Just watched the Warrior HOF speech last night with my wife and got chills listening to him talk. I had hopes of this reconciliation leading to more WWE invovement for him moving forward. Sad news to hear -- and certainly hope this wasn't suicide, given his two young daughters.

On a side note, I've slowly been getting back into wrestling after being away from it (mostly) since the collapse of WCW), and my wife has shockingly gotten into it as well. Wondering what everyone thinks of the WWE Network? I want it for the vault of old PPVs more than anything, and at $10 a month for 6 months, I think it's hard to beat. Am I correct in saying that all upcoming PPVs in this timeframe are included for free, as well?

General thoughts would be appreciated!

Oh, and our internet access is Verizon DSL high speed. Is that fast enough to stream?

The network is awesome. As of now at least all PPV's are included in the 10$ month, WM was streamed a few days ago on the network and it played flawlessly for me.

Well worth the $10 a month. The content is fantastic and as skullman said WM played flawlessly for me.

What kind of internet are you using? Will Verizon DSL be fine? I don't want to order the Network, then find out my internet speeds won't handle the streaming content.

I have the Verizon as you D and Wrestlemania worked perfect for me other than once or twice and I think it was issues on the networks end. I use the network all the time and I never have problems

Does your internet handle Netflix or YouTube?

Youtube works fine -- we don't have Netflix. Sounds like it should be fine though, according to Solidsnake. Thanks for the answers!

Do you know about what speed your dsl is? I have pretty suspect internet, and I have buffering issues. Works fine on the mobile app, though

I have High Speed Enhanced. I think it's 1.1 to 3 Mbps.

I have about 1mbps and I get buffering issues. I can't say what the cutoff is for smooth performance. I'd say if you can run YouTube without having to drop it down to 240k or lower, you should probably be fine

It also depends on how you watch. It seems that PC, Roku, AppleTV, iPad & iPhone work great. PS3/4 & Xbox 360 apps tend to have trouble with the live feed for some reason. I watch on AppleTV and never have a problem. The few times I tried out the 360 app, it was absolute crap.

Going to be ironic when "the Dead Man" outlives them all from that era.
