Warrior - Who? What? and Why?

Welcome to Warrior Web.
The official web presence of the man who Created, Performed and OWNs The Ultimate Warrior.
I am that man. My (full, legal) name is Warrior.

First, the slaughtering of a few inveterate rumors.

1) There was only one Ultimate Warrior. That is, in Sports Entertainment there was only one person who ‘did’ Ultimate Warrior — that was me. There were not different guys or a twin brother or look-a-like cousins who also “did” him. I created him; I was the only one who ever legally and legitimately performed him; and I own the USPTO legally registered trademark rights of Ultimate Warrior as an Intellectual Property.

2) I am not dead. Nor have I ever died. Don’t laugh. Kooks (too many) from all over the world write and inform me that I am, or that I have. Then they demand I write back and confirm it!

3) I lead an active, constructive and fulfilling life. Despite inaccurate rumors, vindictive mischaracterizations, and flagrant defamation claiming otherwise, the reality is I have built an incredibly empowered life on my OWN terms. I'm a busy man and a devoted husband and father. I could not have custom-ordered a more loving, healthy, spirit-filled, and happy home life. And, as a man who has throughout his whole life been inspired by the setting of new goals and their different challenges and the ability to think for oneself which accompanies these, my day-to-day life environment is creative, productive, and positive.

If you’ve believed any of these rumors you were duped. Plain and simple. If you want to continue to believe them — as some, for whatever sick reason, do — then I can assure you the objective, sane, clearheaded thinking going on here will be of little interest to you.

And I would add, to find those who truly have self-destructed keep your eye on the obituaries and visit the gravesides of other WWF/E talent. Their lives have come and prematurely gone, all of them dead and buried from various forms of self-indulgence, beginning with their refusal to mature as real men and grow up and act their age. When you are done there, go look into the barely alive, hollow-souled eyes of those Sports Entertainment figures you once thought defiant, strong, proud, and independent, who’ve sold out so many times they have no more value, or values. In fact, Terry Bollea (Hulk Hogan), the premiere sports entertainer of all time, has mortgaged not only his own, but also the value and values of even his own kids.

As Plato showed us, they are the kind who prefer crawling back into the cave to have their minds, lives and characters controlled because they are afraid of growing all the way up and becoming real men, afraid of the real world and real challenges, and feel safer viewing the shadows from the inside.

Warrior Web found its way into digital existence late 1996-early 1997 (just after my last appearance in the WWF). I took a simple software program that was available back then and threw it together. My goal was to simply have a web presence. Nothing fancy. Just something easy that would recognize Ultimate Warrior’s existence and that I could use as a forum to discuss all that lie ahead for me in a future outside the ring I positively looked forward to getting on with.

Although since its inception the site has gone through many changes, Warrior Web in its simplest, yet significant, terms still remains a journal about my life, my interests and the beliefs that make up the philosophy of life by which I live and its natural, healthy evolution.

If you came here expecting to find endless archives of Ultimate Warrior wrestling analysis, biography and fanship, you’ve come to the wrong place. I am a man who believes setting different challenging goals and learning new things is something you do throughout your life, no matter the degree of previous or even existing success. Always Learn is as much a practice and principle for me as Always Believe.When it was my goal to succeed in sports entertainment, I devoted everything I had to give — time, energy, thinking: every breath of my life. Now that it is no longer my goal, I don’t.

It’s not that I do not appreciate all those who were fans. I most certainly do. I’ve never forgotten (or will ever forget) how instrumental fans were to Ultimate Warrior’s success. Anybody who communicates with me through the site, or has had the chance to meet with me out in public while I am attending one of my speaking engagements, casually or professionally, knows this very well. But my life has moved on to other really productive, positive, and spectacular goals. And my time today is very much spent on those. Learning from them, enjoying and succeeding at them; all of them at this moment, outside a wrestling ring.
