The Ultimate Warrior was a phenomenon in the WWE. He paved the way for many others to unleash their inner warriors when it came to pursuing the dream of professional wrestling. Just like those he inspired whether it was in or out of the ring, he also had his moments of failure, victory, defeat and conquer. In honor of The Ultimate Warrior’s legacy, every Wednesday is Warrior Wednesday. This week, we look back at his third and final return to WWE.
On February 20th, 2013, The Ultimate Warrior took to his official YouTube channel to announce that he would be making an appearance at WrestleCon as well as WrestleMania XXIX on April 7, 2013. During this time, he spoke nothing but kind and positive words about Vince McMahon. His appearances at these events were so popular that a second print of tickets has to be order. On July 15th, The Ultimate Warrior was featured in WWE2K14 game trailer and was featured as part of the roster for those that pre-ordered the game.
On April 5th, 2014, The Ultimate Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He appeared on Wrestlemania XXX and Monday Night Raw, which would be his final televised appearance. This was the first time he had appeared on Monday Night Raw since 1996. He gave a speech to his fans and to the wrestlers, both past and present, as The Ultimate Warrior.
