How is it December warriors? I hope this year has treated you well as we all get nostalgic around now. I bet you have your own Holiday memories, traditions, and even favorite gifts received in the past. Christmas Day years ago was spent at my Aunt and Uncle’s house out of town after dropping off our overnight bags at my Grandparents. I treasure those memories and so fortunate to have had so many wonderful years out there with my extended family. I also loved this beautiful ballerina jewelry box I got from Santa one year. It became a favorite gift I used for a long time.
I hope Warrior had some good memories from his past as a kid although I heard they didn’t celebrate all that much. Maybe he did have a favorite gift but if not, I am so glad he could start his own family years later with new memories. Yes, it is the season of nostalgia but what about other types of “seasons” we will always remember? When it comes to the Ultimate Warrior, we as fans get nostalgic every time we think of his career, big title wins, promos, and all that good stuff. We all have those times in our lives that will be remembered more fondly than others. When it comes to my past career, I had to really think about it.
I came up with two answers based on both my preschool jobs. The first was probably around 1993-1994 when I was co-teaching with these great ladies and it was at my favorite school. We had the best times together. The second place of nostalgia was a little different to remember. Even though there was some friction in the beginning, I’d pick my first few years there from late 1996-1997. There were the core five of us but later on, we added a sixth. It was a challenge for me but we need those life lessons and I recall both times with such nostalgia. How could I possibly forget finding some U.W. items at both jobs? Yeah, those count too!!
I wonder what professional time in Warrior’s life that he’d pick? 🤔I’m not talking about winning the belts since those were just two nights but what about before or after? Some fans loved the 1988 time being in his prime while others think winning the Heavyweight title in 1990 brought about his “downfall.” It’s the in-betweens that got me thinking. Maybe he had no time to be nostalgic back then but that’s a good question to have asked him later on. He may not have been able to define just one part of his career to reflect upon but perhaps he did have that nostalgic season of sorts.
As time goes on, we need to establish new traditions as yesteryear fades. With my kids being older now, gone are the days with tons of toys under the tree and playing all day. It is difficult saying goodbye to those times as we all know while moving on. We can’t live there but need to be excited for what’s to come. I have way too many moments or seasons personally to not get nostalgic about and we never want to lose them. That’s why the Ultimate Warrior and others passed will always live on because they are part of us too, just like our own nostalgia. Remember though, he wants us to keep moving forward because we have this great life to live and should to the fullest.
Even though I have mentioned this time of year being filled with Holiday cheer, maybe you have nostalgia for some others. It isn’t just Christmas ya know? As long as you make it all good, that’s what counts. Share your favorite stories with those you love and you’ll find pieces of nostalgia everywhere. Maybe you can all gather ’round and watch some Warrior DVD’s or maybe some of you even have a VCR hooked up? That’s nostalgia right there.
I do hope whatever season of nostalgia you celebrate, have more laughs than tears and then go on and make new ones. I know this sounds like an end of the year post but nope. You’re stuck with me a few more weeks until we welcome 2022… Oh boy, what new stories to tell then? So, warriors- make any season of time nostalgic, not just the Holidays. You’ll have those times in your life you may not want to look back on fondly as Warrior did also. They make us who we are though.
Nostalgia will always be there and I hope most of you fans reading remember the ‘ol WWF days. Today’s fans will have this time to share in the future as the newer logo of WWE suggests: “Then, Now, Forever, Together.” Enjoy this season since we will never get another one. Oh, I know my editing is not all that great but Warrior would’ve made a great Santa, don’t ya think? 🎅🏼🎄💚❤️
