'Tonight We Celebrate The Life Of The Ultimate Warrior': Watch The WWE's Poignant Tribute On Monday Night Raw

Last night's event was dedicated to the wrestling star

WWE stars and fans paid tribute to wrestling icon Ultimate Warrior during Monday Night Raw in Alabama last night.

A week on from Warrior's death, a special tribute video was screened to the arena which was packed with thousands of fans. After watching the emotional montage video of the wrestler's best moments, the arena asked for a moment of silence as they rang the bell ten times in his memory.

"Join us tonight as we celebrate the life of the Ultimate Warrior", the announcer declared after the poignant tribute to wild applause and chants of "Warrior" which broke out among the fans who were given Warrior masks to wear for the event.
