Warrior Bio – 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.

SEE MY RECENT POSTS section on the right sidebar.

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. There are plenty of kooks (too many) who write and inform me that I am or that I have — and then 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. As 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.

To find those who truly have self-destructed, keep your eye on the obituaries and visit the gravesides of other WWF/E talent who’ve died of 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 hollow-souled eyes of those Sports Entertainment figures you once thought defiant, strong, proud, and independent who’ve crawled back into the cave to have their minds, lives and characters controlled because they were afraid of being real men, afraid of the real world and real challenges, and felt safer, as Plato showed us, viewing the shadows from the inside.

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.

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

If you have come 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 success. 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, met me out in public casually or professionally on one of my speaking engagements, 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.

Each day new visitors to Warrior Web write comments to me similar to this: “I started to read what you had to say; at first I was under the mistaken impression that you were quite possibly still running around doing your character from the ring. But, after reading further reading, I found that you had deep insights, you had used your experiences to shape and strengthen you.”

Well, for starters, if you came here expecting that the guy who created the Ultimate Warrior gimmick would not be intense, I guess you’re going to be in for a surprise. After all, the intensity and physical explosiveness Ultimate Warrior displayed is the most fixed impression you and the Sports Entertainment industry will never, ever forget. (Witnessing how so many others have so pathetically tried, many even under the duress of management instruction, to replicate it sadly informs all of us of the hard-nosed reality of this.) Yes, wrestling is choreographed, but there are just some personality aspects of the business and its talent that can’t be faked. Ultimate Warrior ran because I was running him. He was intense because I already was. So mind your manners and be thankful that I’m an old-fashioned kind of guy who believes there are some traditions better left unchanged. My natural personal intensity is one. It never will. Whatever I am doing – wrestling, writing, working out, speaking, even weaving pot holders — I am going to do it with action and intensity.

It also seems very natural to me that I have allowed my experiences to shape and strengthen me. And I am always a little surprised others are surprised that I have. I just don’t think it is a thing to be surprised by — or give praise to. I think it is better that we save ourselves to be surprised, and ashamed, of others who don’t. It’s also just as natural that my philosophy of life — fostered by my life experiences — was forged, and has subsequently evolved throughout the years, by experiences that are entirely unique to my life. I am who am I today, and in the past been who’ve I’ve been, in direct accordance to the sum total effect of the experiences I have had at any distinct moment along the timeline of my life. I wasn’t the same whole person after I had the experience of my wrestling career as I was before; and the same holds true, now, 20 years after my beginnings in that industry and 10 years removed from it altogether.

Misbelieve what you want, but “Ultimate Warrior” as a “persona” didn’t just drop from the sky and create itself out of thin air. I created and performed and evolved him, creatively, out of who I was and what I believed at the time. Persona is, after all, even uncannily more so considering my Ultimate Warrior gimmick and his performance apparel, Latin for “the psyche behind the mask, the soul behind the exterior of one’s character as one presents it to the world, masking one’s inner thoughts, feelings.”

Ultimate Warrior was simply and purely an exterior amplification of my own character, creativity, and charisma — my OWN ideas and my OWN beliefs; all of them attributes which a character like The Ultimate Warrior would have to be made of. There was no one to hold my hand or nobody who handed me the gimmick and instructed me about how to portray and evolve him. Yes, no one and nobody includes Vince McMahon and his sycophants.

For twenty-five years before I ever crossed paths with the unusual proposition of getting in the pro-wrestling business, my “character” was inevitably shaped and strengthened by my other life experiences that had already well-forged the philosophy of life I entered the business holding.

Ultimate Warrior’s philosophical core paralleled my own — and that is what, I believe, contributed in largest part to his success.

Ultimate Warrior was a “persona” who embodied energy, strong work-ethic, unconquerable determination, self-discipline, self-responsibility, self-accountability, and self-belief. He was inspired by great acts and ideas, and believed in time-honored virtues like integrity, honor, loyalty, and heritage. He was interested in actualizing the potential of his life, being the best as much as he was created to be, and believed in earning what he got by his own merits.

He creatively engaged inspiration and guidance from the warriors of the past. He believed in the worthiness and honor in seeking challenge and making sacrifice. He believed in an immortal spiritual existence, a continued karmic interaction and connectedness with the souls and spirits of warriors who had already lived and warriors yet to live; time past working energetically with present time and time yet to come.

He also believed in that basic, classic battle cause, the singular reason to stand up and step in and fight for what you believe, even if you had to give your life for it: Good vs Evil. There was one or the other, just like there was either right or wrong, true or false, and he had no tolerance for any forms in-between.

Ultimate Warrior believed that life meant more than just a purposeless passing of time, an insignificant trek from its birth to its death. He believed in destiny, not coincidence, and ideals that were greater and longer living than just the time period of his one life. No one gave ME these creative expressions — they came from inside.

Like it or not, believe it or not, accept the reality of it or not, nothing is more clear: One cannot do what one is not capable of. Ex nihilo nihil fit (Nothing is created from nothing).

So it was, too, that the disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs that made me capable of creating and performing Ultimate Warrior would, in time, also be the same disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs giving me the strength and confidence to reject certain personal behaviors and business practices of people and go on beyond Sports Entertainment and achieve other goals. Looking back now, 20 years removed from the beginning, it’s clear to see that it was inevitable that sports entertainment would be only a chapter in my life, not a whole book.

It’s so eerily ironic. When all I’d been given was the opportunity to prove what I had to offer, I was praised and awarded great success for exploiting my unique disciplines and beliefs through the performances of the Ultimate Warrior persona. Then, they got behind the self-disciplined goal-setter and serious soulsearcher and introspective person I was. Then, the popularly embraced character (by a huge fanbase that still survives today) and indisputable success of the character never bothered those who owned and ran the company. Yet today (and for the last 10 years), I’m vilified, ridiculed and portrayed as being “Self-Destructive” and as having “confused fantasy with reality” for, in truth, simply having the courage and confidence to use my OWN creativity, make my OWN choices, and take my OWN risks to pursue success at life challenges and goals other than pro-wrestling. Oh, there’s something sickminded and sorry about it and there’s definitely someone who’s committing perversion, all right. But it isn’t I who needs counseling or needs to apologize.

The truth about me is much more than what you think you know. I am a man who likes to have his head where his life actually is. At 47 years of age, I am a man who believes it is a natural expectation that a male should rise up to the different phases of maturity, masculinity and mentoring that he comes to stand before in his life with dignity and a wiser life perspective, not stoop down to in a pitiful, immature attempt to psychologically fit in with youth 20- 30 years younger. It’s a long time adage of mine: when one grows up, one should think and act like it. It’s my personal belief that this tradition is not being put into practice enough by people who are of an age to abide by it.

Although certainly an atypical career experience, being involved and highly successful in sports entertainment by creating and performing a persona like the Ultimate Warrior, make no mistake, it is certainly not the only experience that has made me the man I am today. Warrior Web exist to reveal what has. If you came with any preconceived “silly idea” you should probably set them aside for the time being and get ready for the lesson of your life. Around here, those kind of childish misconceptions are accustomed to being destroyed.

Now imagine having the physical intensity and creative energy to perform Ultimate Warrior practically day in and day out, throughout the year without fail, year after year. Now imagine you aren’t doing that anymore. That energy has to go someplace. I didn’t let myself down. I got busy pursuing other goals.

The site is divided into Body, Mind and Soul because these are the three pillars of the philosophy of life I live by and have used to succeed not only in my Sports Entertainment career, but at life. These are the three fundamental faculties I was endowed with at birth to make my way here on this planet we call Earth. And they are what I’ve long used to guide and build the structure, quality and end-destiny of my life.

Here at Warrior Web I’ve put down plenty of serious thoughts in my own words. There are many. Some going back to 1997. Some posts run 20-25 pages alone.

(NOTE: with the November 2006 redesign many of the previous posts are being reformatted and edited, some even put into the form of PodCasts. Several posts will not be linked until the revised version is completed. Check at my blog,”Warrior’s Machete,” or at Warrior Web’s “Miscellaneous Update” page to find out more.)

What are the writings about? Everything.

* My thoughts on why I’ve always believed in destiny, not coincidence, since I was young kid; and how creating and performing Ultimate Warrior, as a gimmick, was simply a precursor to my discovery that Warrior, as a human being and man with that name, wasn’t one.

* My thoughts on standing up and fighting for my rights when Titan (the McMahons) attempted to tell me they owned what they never had the power to create and I knew my life was MY registered trademark, and MINE ALONE.

* My thoughts on where the business is creatively today, why I’m not in it “on principle,” why its storylines and content are degenerate, depraved and worthless, and why it’s contributing to make today’s culture the exact same way.

* My thoughts on other wrestling talent who have died while bent over their dirty little bags of street drugs, cowered to their filthy refusal to grow up and become real men.

* My thoughts about adults behaving like kids and mentoring gone all to hell ruining our youth.

* My thoughts on having the unique experience of being a heroic role model to young minds and then later in my life coming to find and call the Founding Times and Founding people the absolute heroic role models.

* My thoughts on discovering my love for America and American History.

* Writings about my self-learning journey with “The Great Books of the Western World” (the writings by mankind’s greatest original seekers of knowledge).

* Writings about my unusual exposure to the philosophies other adults hold, philosophies that are anti-life, anti-American, dependent and pathetic — literally subhuman.

* Writings that refuse to cut anyone any slack when it comes to the inescapable fact that there is an undeniable responsibility that comes with the inalienable right.

* Writings about that there is an irrefutable line between what is right and wrong, good and evil, true and false; and how the tolerated blurring of those lines has spawned the gravest dangers we face today in our society — Political Correctness and Moral Relativity.

* Writings about why I am doing what I am today because I am a father and my kids are growing up in this world and I want to do what I can, right now, to prevent an inevitable revolution my kid’s kids will one day have to shed their own blood fighting.

* Writings about culture and politics and liberalism vs. Conservatism — and writings about that liberalism isn’t the classical liberalism it once was and today’s Conservatism isn’t really Conservatism at all either.

* Writings about being my desire to build lifelong relationships with other bold, pure Conservatives, in the truest sense of the concept, through my OWN Mentoring and Leadership Foundation, “Creation Endowed Conservatism.”

* Writings about that there is no NOT ONE one politician from either side who is doing anything to preserve America — the People’s Country, not theirs.

* Writings about the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my life.

* Writings about what I believe, what I think — how to think and why one must.

* Writings about being a physical animal and a rational animal — and how living a full life demands that you are both.

* Writings about what “warrior” as concept means to me and how it evolved into something bigger and braver than a wrestling persona who intensified the hell out of every wrestling ring he ever entered.

* Writings and more writings…Podcasts, too.

Throughout all my writings and commentaries you will recognize more than a few common themes:

1) I can be a sarcastic SOB at times. My sense of humor leans to the wicked side. This sarcasm is too often mischaracterized and has people believe I am a bitter, angry, and mean person. This is simply not true. I just happen to put the fleetingness of our lives in its proper perspective and figure our Creator has to have a pretty wicked sense of humor himself. In instances where hypocrites, liars, enablers, frauds, and other people who generally screw up their lives but never look in a mirror to see who is responsible (which I absolutely loathe) suffer tragedy due to their irresponsibility, I am absent tolerance and sympathy and my sarcasm can be its most biting. Frankly, I think the brilliance of my sarcastic sense of humor really shines in these “cultural battle” pieces, kinda like a full moon’s reflection radiating off a Great White’s tooth right before he chomps his victim’s bodypart off. Shocking, but lethally tranquilizing. I don’t do it to intentionally upset anyone, but if it does, I don’t care.

2) I’ve taken “warrior” and used my unique awareness of it and given it serious thought as a concept; and I have then further used it to develop a personal philosophy, life, and career that have nothing to do with a wrestling career.

3) My belief in the potential of every human life. Whatever else I discuss during the course of a writing, whatever direction a writing takes, it begins and ends with this: the potential of human life. Ironically, much of the mischaracterization there is about me stems from my positivity about this powerful potential and my unemotional unwillingness to give people who misuse theirs a break. Frankly, my position is, if you don’t use the potential you have to live, you don’t deserve to. I believe there is a potential from life that is to be fulfilled. Many people find that my enthusiasm about it is overdone and my lack of sympathy for others who fail at living up to their life responsibilities too harsh. I simply have none to give to those who won’t think and act for themselves to help themselves. Every life is full of potential. Life is not always the way I’d like to have it either but I don’t sit around feeling sorry for myself, begging to others that life is not fair and would someone please mend the broken parts. My quick fix is: Quit crying and feeling sorry for yourself. Get up, get moving and get doing. For Christsakes, do something — don’t just sit in your own pile of poop. For starters, you have life — that is what is awesome to begin with!! And that alone is an always-forgiving starting place to make great things in your life happen, over and over, again and again.

4) I am not p/c. (What is true never is.) You will not find any here. I hate it; the only thing I hate more are people who know it is destroying the World we live in but have not the integrity and courage to speak up against it. In fact, to counterbalance the pervasive, destructive p/c out on the street, I press the politically-incorrect envelope to the MAX. I can’t stand phonies and two-faced hypocrites. I have no tolerance for purposeful ignorance or stupidity. Herein there is no hesitation to say so. You will find huge doses of moral prejudice for these types here.

5) I do not live my life second-handedly. I am not, first, interested in impressing others above making a lasting impression with my own life. I get my self-esteem from the inside, huge gobs of it, not by desperately soliciting the praise or approval of others. I have no interest in developing empty, phony friendships or wasting my time indulging silly life dramas and gossip just to make nice. It is not that I am mean-spirited. It is that I am indifferent to it all. I could care less and I don’t feel the need to act like I do. My life is my life, and my life is equal to time and I don’t trade my time (life) for wasteful, meaningless experience.

6) I have incredible self-discipline and self-control. I am sure about what I decide and believe and I do not seek or need the advice of others to reach those conclusions. I do not make wrong moral choices. I am not modest about how I conduct myself in regard to all of these. This is off-putting to many people. I do not care. The world is very black and white to me. I know there cannot even be gray unless there were, first, the knowledge of what is black and white. Gray is middle of the road. Gray is wanting to have your cake and eat it too. Life does not work that way. I don’t try to live it that way. I judge people, including myself — HARD. I do not pull my moral punches. If you are put-off by this, then what I have to bluntly state may not sit well with your stomach. Take some Alka-Seltzer or just simply leave.

7) I don’t let my spiritual beliefs pull me around life by the nose. I use the Creator’s gift that I am Endowed with to deal effectively, successfully and happily with my life here on this Earth. I do not use the Creation of my life to make excuses; I use it as an empowerment. I don’t pray for help; I pray for greater challenges. I didn’t come into this life owing anything to anyone and I certainly don’t owe anything to anybody who will not use their OWN incredible Creation of life to do for themselves. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN ORIGINAL SIN. Morality for me does not come from a Bible; it comes from the nature of the Being I am Created. After all, HE Created us just as we are long BEFORE the Bible was created.

8) I don’t practice my philosophy of life or its principles, piecemeal.

9) MOTIVATION is a part of ALL that I do.

I am Your Founding Father of Ring Intensity,

Always Believe,

Warrior

  1. Hey Warrior,

    I really like the new look of your website.
    I’ve always believed in you & always will.

    Do you think there’s a chance of a new 2 or 3 DVD disk set for the Ultimate Warrior in the near future?

    Congrats! to the NWE award, appearance & your Ultimate wrestling history.

    You will always be my #1 wrestling hero of all time.

    WELCOME BACK WARRIOR!

  3. Jon Fallek says:

    I hear you. Trust me, people buy that video to see you in action, NOT to listen to the narration and soundbites. Your actions speak louder. I can’t make a realistic version of you in the Smackdown v. Raw Games. They limit the speed of the wrestlers in your weight class to 6 out of 10. You would be 9.5 in the area of speed.

  4. hi warrior spain love`s you, you re the legend of prowrestling you re the best wrestler in this industry.

  5. Stephen-Ireland says:

    I have always been a fan of you Warrior and always will be, but i always wondered if there was any chance of you releasing your own DVD off your side of the story of your years in the WWE and WCW. O and welcome back to wrestling.

  6. Ned - Seattle says:

    Warrior, I heard you on the BJ Shea morning show while driving to work. I have never really heard you speak out like you did this morning; WOW! You have a persona that men should model themselves after. You’re a man of your word, you mean what you say, you say it with conviction and backbone. Although I speed read your “Machete” Blog, I had to put it out there that you are an incredible individual and someone who won’t back down from their principles. Right on, Warrior!

  7. sergio says:

    Warrior, you are and always have been the MAN! No wrestling charecter past or present can ever match up! Thanks for being a hero to us for many years!

  8. trae says:

    Warrior, first of all let me say I have always been a fan and congrats on your award. I read that you have challenged Vince Mc. to a match at Wrestlemania 25. I think that would be great. I would love to see you absolutely destroy that egomaniac. You will always be ULTIMATE and a true ICON in the wrestling industry. My gratitude and respect are completely yours. You are and have always been my favorite wrestler. LONG LIVE THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR!!

  9. grant says:

    Warrior,

    I resonate strongly with the energy and the beliefs you uphold and am glad to see theres at least one person out there who hasn’t sold their soul to that parasite and his poor excuse of wrestling porno.

    As far as intensity and high octane sheer brute power your pretty much set the standard , its a shame theres no one out there today who even has a quater of that now .

    Thanks for all the memories and inspiration ,

    If you do ever go back to WWE to face any one one last time it would be fitting if it was Vince or his equally egomanical son in law HHH .

    I’m sure theres few dead wrestlers who’d also agree.

    All the best

    I knew the things everyone kept saying about you were bullshit. You were and are the greatest wrestler I’ve ever seen. Finding you on the web has made my week. I would love to see you knock Hogan’s false teeth out for real, although it looks like Linda’s giving him his just due in another way (LOL). Stay strong.

  11. Kenny says:

    Dude, I am so glad you are outdpoken and have this site. You were my hero growing up and now that im 30, you continue to be a true role model. I do hope to see you back in the ring, at least for one more match. Please do it for all us LITTLE WARRIORS!
    Thanks so much for being you..

  13. Joseph McDougle says:

    Dear Warrior:

    I remember it like white on rice when you first came on the scene with the WWF back in 1987. I was 10 years old and a huge wrestling fan. When I first saw you on TV and your persona, I knew that you would be one of my favorite wrestlers of all time along with Sting. I always wanted to be like you, the painted face, the running entrance the words of wisdom. To me you was the coolest person on the planet. I rejoiced when you beat the Honky Tonk Man for the IC belt and cried when you lost to Rick Rude. The one thing I always liked about you Warrior was your honesty. Especially with steroids. You were open and blunt about lt unlike most people. By looking at your site and watching you on TV through YouTube to be honest. You are a positive influence on the younger generation today. Keep up the good work Warrior. Please let me know when you have received this reply. May God bless you always Warrior.

  14. Craig (from New Jersey) says:

    There are NO words that can explain how Warrior has changed my life. I’m not just speaking as an Ultimate Warrior fan but as an adult. In 1994 I was away on business in Arizona. After my meeting (in Chandler Arizona) I rented a car and set out on a quest to hopefully have a glimpse of my hero. After driving for quite a while I found my way to Scottsdale and Warriors gym. After standing outside for about 25 minutes trying to get up enough nerve to walk inside I finally did it. I walked into Warriors Gym hoping to get a glance of my hero. Low and behold LARGER than life the man behind the counter said “Can I help you brother?”

    At 33 years of age (in 1994) I stuttered, shook, broke out into a cold sweat and like a little-school-boy uttered to him in a quiet-fearful tone…………..”You’re him” He looked me straight in the eye and said “Yes I am”. He could see I was in a fearful awe and said to me “its ok brother relax” he came from behind the counter and put his hand out to shake mine. This is a moment I had dreamed of for years and years. To make a long story short Warrior did everything he could to make me feel at ease. He introduced me to his (girlfriend at that time-now wife) Dana. He then went into the back and came out with the WWF title belt for me to try on. He had me try on his Ultimate maniacs (back when he and savage were a tag team for a short time) Jacket. I took a picture out of my wallet of my wife Bridget wearing an Ultimate warrior t-shirt. Well……….. Warrior then went as far as to load me up with (at NO CHARGE to me may I add) 3 shirts, 2 sweatshirts, 1 gym bag, and 2 hats. Like a kid in euphoria I was just enamored. But that’s not all. He then said meet me in the front. I walk outside the gym and here comes Warrior with a custom Blazer with his face and logo airbrushed onto the truck. Now it sounds like a dream right? WRONG it was true to life. Warrior had also taken the time to sit and talk with me. No. Not just about wrestling but about my future, my dreams and focusing me on a path to success. Warrior and I have kept in touch the past 14 years, in good times and in bad. Warrior guided me through and around a maze of false promises and kept me grounded and saved me from what would have been the biggest mistake of my life (Lets just say married couples at times have differences) and showed me how to stay true and not relinquish my dignity for a man without his dignity is just a shell of a man. Warrior also guided me to what has become a six figure career in sales, how you may ask. That’s easy……………….I never have nor ever will relinquish my dignity be it in my home life or my professional life and that friends shines through. Just take a look at the Logo tattoo on my right shoulder or the band (of warrior logo’s) around my left bicep. People ask me what does it stand for and I simply say dignity and self respect………………….in the way of warrior wisdom. Warrior you are my mentor, my hero and will always be my friend.

  17. Nathaniel says:

    “To will the means, is to will the goal” KWynn. You are truly before your time. I’ve been watch you since your first debut. You gave all of us more then you know. Although, the so call professionals, judged you, condemmed you, for your actions in the past, but you still stand TALL. You did not hide, nor were you ashamed of what you are! Have you ever asked yourself, why? Why can’t they see what’s inside me, as you proudly perform, and wear your inner spirit, soul, on your skin that will not go unannounced? Why is that so many follow your example in some shape or form? Have you ever ask yourself these questions? I’m sure you did. If your messages is real, then what I believe cannot be a lie. Therefore, what I believe about you is true. Warrior you will see greater things then these. It’s not over, it has only begun. I am Nathanael, I believe in you, because
    LOVE NEVER DIES!!!

    Warrior,
    been a fan for as long as I can remember. It would be a dream come true for you to return to the WWE and kick Vince’s butt at Wrestlemania. If you two could get past some of the issues you two had, and just focused on business it would be great. Some dream matches out there that everyone would love to see. Hope it happends

  21. Hi again,

    just wanted to say thanks for gracing us at Wrestleslam back in February in the UK.

    Both myself and my brother had the best time meeting you and it was an awesome moment in our lives as wrestling fans.

    The photos are on my Facebook, feel free to have a look if you desire.

    where can i start, Ultimate Warrior? hmm, 1.the most entertaining wrestler of all time. you beleive his persona and people really thought this guy is from outer space and is all crazy thats what made him great, and the wrestling was way better than anything i see today. in the DVD warriors destruction, they saying bad things but non of that projected on anyone a bad image of warrior cuz u can still respect warrior and like him even after watching a dvd that was supposed to make us hate him, always Warrior.

  23. Paul says:

    Cool. My son is 9 and has recently wanted to start to watch wrestling on TV. So 2 weeks ago I let him stay up a little late on Monday and we watched it together. I used to watch it a lot back ‘in the day’. So now he is really enjoying it, but as a father now it is very scary as the story lines are a lot racier than they once were. So tonight my son was pulling up current wrestling videos and I said, ‘hey you want to see daddy’s favorite wrestler’? I then pulled up many ‘Warrior’ videos and we watched for a long time. It was awesome for me, a trip down memory lane and my son loved watching it. He was in disbelief at the energy. Me? I just love to listen to the interviews. Until tonight I was one of the guys that thought you were dead to. Continue on. Live strong and do what’s right.

    Good to see you made it out of the WWE/F alive in one piece mentaly and physically. Its ashame of what still really goes on behinde the scenes with steroid – painkiller abuse. Some scapegoats get a month vacation when tested psotitive for drugs (looks like a fence to me).

    Well anyway, it wasn’t fair for you to be wrestling in the WWE/F anyway because the wrestlers were expecting to wrestle a westler not a warrior FROM PARTS UNKNOWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

    Thanks for being a great role model and saying NO to Vince. Looks like good karma is with you. And best of luck in the future.

  26. John says:

    I can’t even tell you how much impact you have had in my life the past 2 years. Your motivation has made me go back to school, become very strict on diet and workout routine, and has made me see all of the B.S. in the media today. The world is afraid of free thinkers like yourself Warrior, and that is the honest truth. You are such a motivation to myself, and I can’t thank you enough.

  27. Andy says:

    Hi Warrior,

    i´ve been waiting for this moment for about 15 years. I saw you wrestling when I was a teenager. Now I´m 33 years old and did what you said to all your warriors. Always believe.

    Thank you very much. You are the greatest of all times.

  28. Simply The Best!!!! May GOD continue 2 bless you.

    u have influenced me a lot!
    yes u have….

  30. Eric says:

    i love the site…you are one of a kind and thats why i loved watching you in the ring…i look forward to seeing what you have to say next:)thats whats wrong with society these days is people can’t handle the truth,i for one love that you don’t hold back and are a straight shooter,the world needs more like you Warrior!

  31. Anthony says:

    Warrior, I’m so happy to hear that you will be returning to the ring. I’ve been a fan for a long time and thought I would never see you burst down the entrance ramp or deliver a gorilla press slam again. I long for the wrestling of yesterday and believe something is missing in today’s sports entertainment. I wish you the best of luck and hope this is only the beginning of your comeback.

  32. Giandomenico says:

    Hi Warrior!
    I’m Italian and I talk English only a little bit, as you can see. I’m writing in every Italian sport-blog about your legend and your decision to come back on the ring. I follow you since 80′s and I’m very proud and happy about your Spanish match.
    You are still the number one, Ultimate!

    I wanna ask you something.
    Many people of the sport or of the cinema ( Cassius Clay, Bruce Lee, S.Stallone, Lou Ferrigno..) talk about their work-outs in magazines, books, tv and so on. I think that many people would know like me something of particular about your way to “pumping iron” through exercices, food, energy drinks, sacrifices and every thing you do.

    Good like, Ultimate Warrior, and keep on walkin’

  33. The web site looks great. Looking forward to seeing the NWE show.

    Dave

  34. Ronel Manalo says:

    Welcome back ULTIMATE WARRIOR! Hope to see you soon in the WWE and wrestle the likes of Batista, John Cena, Randy Orton and HHH

  35. Marvel says:

    Hey Warrior, I’m glad you are making a comeback. I’m ready to see you in action again. I don’t know if you have read it on http://www.PWMania.com or not, but a guy that don’t even know you named Test AKA Andrew Martin, had some pretty harsh words about you, he called you a 1rst class piece of shit. I know that isn’t true and all your fans know that as well. You are a 1rst class wrestler, that created a path for these new wrestlers. I’ve noticed Batista he shakes the ropes like you use to. Me and my wife are looking forward to your return. She says you are a real intelligent guy. Thanks for the Memories back when you first started and hopefully we will have memories from the future.
