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 The Ultimate Warrior’s period of time where he was a writer.
The Ultimate Warrior had published a comic book called Warrior in 1996, with Warrior being the main character. He also ran a blog on his website called Warrior’s Machete. On this blog, he discussed his views on religion, sexuality and politics as well as his professional and personal life. Warrior discussed various people in wrestling such as Vince McMahon, Owen Hart and Hulk Hogan to name a few as well as historical people such as Martin Luther King and religious figures such as Jesus. He also touched based on his respect for our Founding Fathers and books like Odyssey by Homer, As a Man Thinketh by James Allen and even replied to fans’ letters. In 2012, he created and sold small paintings called Weapons of Wisdom. These paintings were 6×9 in size, painted with watercolors and either had an inspirational quote or a doodle by The Ultimate Warrior himself.
