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 The Ultimate Warrior’s hobby of writing.
The Ultimate Warrior published a comic book called Warrior in 1996 where he was the main character. The illustration was done by The Sharp Brothers and it was co-written with Jim Callahan.
“Warrior Machete” was the title of The Ultimate Warrior’s blog located on his personal website. On this blog, he discussed his views on politics, patriotism, sexuality, his time as a professional wrestler and even used his blog to respond to fans’ letters.
