Warrior Wednesday (Conservative Speaker)

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 are discussing Warrior’s short career as a Conservative Speaker.

After The Ultimate Warrior had retired from wrestling in 1999, he had a brief career as a conservative speaker and commentator. During this time, he partnered with another conservative spokesperson in Daniel Pinheiro and they criticized left-wing politics.  While speaking at the University of Connecticut, he made a comment about homosexuals stating, “Queering doesn’t make the world work.” This comment led to some controversy which resulted in Warrior clarifying this on his official website, stating that “the human race would die out if everyone was a homosexual.”
