Ultimate Warrior, who recently died, will get a tribute on ABC’s “The Goldbergs,” because creator Adam Goldberg is a fan.

Goldberg says that he was heartbroken when he learned of the death.

Coincidentally, he and his staff were working on an ’80s wrestling themed episode.

“With the help of fans on Twitter, I was able to get in touch with [Warrior’s] family and I’m thrilled to dedicate the May 6th episode to him,” he told TMZ.

“It’s my way of saying thank you for being the coolest hero a kid could ever have.”

The episode will air on May 6 at 9 p.m. It’s titled “A Wrestler Named Goldberg.”

A full description of the episode reads: “Murray and Pops convince Barry to come up with an elaborate lie about him joining the wrestling team so an overprotective Beverly is duped. When the truth comes out and backfires, Beverly takes matters into her own hands. Meanwhile, Adam convinces Erica to take him to the local premiere of ‘Return of the Jedi’ but she flakes to hang out with her friends. When Erica sees his disappointment, she makes good on her original promise with a plan.”
