"No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat; his lungs breathe their final breath.

"And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory."

Always Believe

I woke up around midnight tossing and turning. I couldn’t fall back asleep, so naturally, I went on Facebook. My friend, Charles posted a comment on my photo with Ultimate Warrior: “:( RIP Warrior”. I thought he was full of shit, but I decided to look into this bit of news.

My heart feels as if it has shattered into a million little pieces. My eyes continue to tear up as I type this entry. Typically, I would wait until I’m wide awake, however, a man of your status deserves an immediate tribute. 

For most of my life, I have been an avid fan of wrestling (WWE, mostly). I remember watching Macho Man, Jake The Snake, Big Boss Man, The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, and my personal favorite, Ultimate Warrior. I loved his flamboyant persona and costumes. How could you NOT?! 

In August 2013, I had the pleasure of meeting Ultimate Warrior at PAX Prime. It was my first time meeting a WWE superstar, but this was different…you were a legend. I remember walking up to you with a huge smile, sweaty palms, and I completely lost my train of thought. We conversed for two minutes, laughed hard, smiled, you kissed my forehead and squeezed me rather tightly (I couldn’t breathe, but it was okay). I was thrilled to have you in my life. I was thrilled to have such a rare opportunity. I was thrilled for all those little moments of inspiration which coursed through my body at that time. 

I am so very proud of your career accomplishments, but I am more proud with the way you pushed all drama regarding WWE aside. This example of maturity and grace opened many doors for you including WWE 2K14 ambassador, a spot in the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame, and more importantly, a younger following of fans that aspired to be as crazy and carefree.

I will always cherish our conversation, laughter, hug, and kiss. Thank you for changing my life and inspiring me endlessly. I love you, friend. May you rest easy. “Always believe.”
