Inside Warrior’s Web ✍🏻📖

*** A quick note before beginning today. 30 years ago this month of February in 1992, I began a workout program at home in my basement. I remember this because the Winter Olympics were going on just as they are happening now. A little of that story is told in my book Spirit and Belief and it is quite comical how it all started for me. Hard to believe it’s been 30 years!

71 pages. That’s how much material I read most recently from “Warrior’s Web” which the post “Back to Warrior’s Machete” was about a few years ago. The number 71 reminds me of the movie “ELF” when Miles Finch wants a car to be at 71°. That would be his ride to Greenway Publishing. I could just hear his voice saying “71°!” over the phone so it made me laugh! Another movie strikes again… People had talked about Warrior’s web presence and some even found or copied pages he had written. I asked for it and got them. To think someone took time out of their day to send them to me was pretty nice. Many thanks to J.P. My Warrior’s Machete post STILL gets viewed and so now I had more time to read without being rushed back in 1999 or even 2005. Most content I had seen before but possibly forgotten. Nowadays, there’s so many connectors to my life which I’ll be sharing today. There were four years on these writings from Warrior’s Web dated 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2005.

Here’s some quotes not in any particular order:

” I want to post more, but I can’t… my brief can be verbose.”

“Writing is good for you…for it is my belief; for every writer there will be a reader.” ( me for both!)

” I’m just a dumb, muscle-headed wrestler…” (insert humor!)

“I have worked hard to be more than just whatever I did in the ring.”

*So many more to include but these really struck me. *

Am sure you’re wondering about those books in the photo. Yup, got a story for those of course! Here’s one more quote Warrior says about William Bennett’s books: “All his books are gems.” Maybe some of you remember when I shared all about “The Little Engine that Could.” That was a two-parter but “The Little Steam Engine” (same story) is in the beige book you see. When Warrior mentions William Bennett, I knew that name. My aunt and step uncle gave us those two books as a wedding gift almost 20 years ago. I have yet to read all the stories but another great connector. I just had to put them both in the photo with Warrior, or the Ultimate Warrior.

I’m not dissecting every little piece of information on those 71 pages of Warrior’s Web but I am highlighting a few. These are my writings of course but respect is always given to Warrior’s freedom of speech whether I totally agree or not. We are similar in many ways though. I’ve mentioned this plenty of times but our love of books is one thing. No, I will not likely read “The Great Books of the Western World” but a passion behind literature and learning, yes! There were many topics he addressed which I have discussed as well. Discipline, being a hero, Destrucity, succeeding, principles, OWN, defining the word warrior, and so many others come to mind. I love how he mentioned certain ideas and would say how that’s a book, that’s another book, etc. I know he was writing another one but just the thought of putting all that together intrigued me. He stressed the thought of getting a dictionary or thesaurus, I used to say that too but now we have the Internet. Convenient- yes but not as involved for us. I, too love the Internet for it’s good but such little effort on our brains that way.

My feelings about religion or organized religion have also changed enormously. Maybe it never really did but I’m remembering my true beliefs now. Warrior does know more concerning that area being in spirit but I totally agree with his views on God or a Creator. More I mentioned at times is on my other blog but honestly, call a Supreme Being whatever you like- it truly doesn’t matter. I know many who believe in the Bible word for word and being raised that way myself, was taught to believe it. Stories have lots of metaphors and original sin doesn’t sit well with me anymore either. You can think what you want but his thoughts on this totally made sense to me.

I also thought it was interesting to hear him relate some facts about those Founding Fathers of ours in the U.S.  Here’s a story: my husband and I went out to breakfast a few weeks ago and I can’t remember exactly but we were talking about Presidents for some reason. I had recalled Warrior listing how John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 50th anniversary ( SAME day) of the Declaration of Independence’s signing. I found it on his web and told my husband who knew this already. It was then that my left ear started ringing for a few seconds. Thanks for being part of the conversation Warrior! He connected dates just like I do. 🇺🇸

So glad also to read humor in his writings. He does admit to mistakes like we all have and owns them. “There is no shame in being a beginner or a novice… life has purpose.” Yes, so true Warrior and we need to always believe that. One of my favorite parts was when he talked about becoming a father. I, too could understand his feelings. He already was changing and growing before fatherhood like I was before motherhood. I loved how he said Indy’s kisses were the best part of his day! That was before new baby Mattie joined the family. 💋

The last part I will mention is Davey Boy Smith’s passing.

***BIG SIGH*** 😞from me on this. I knew they were friends for a while and that Davey’s addictions became seemingly difficult. Some points Warrior made though made me stop reading for a bit.. I do see his frustration on celebrity adulation and how we shouldn’t glamorize someone in death just because they were our “hero” or “idol.” The truth here is that people will mourn the celebrity they knew despite their personal lives, problems, or relationships. I realize Warrior lost respect for Davey because of his behavior and he is entitled to that. He did mention of course how extremely sad it all was. Most fans of any real significance will grieve in a way where none of those addictions matter at all. Warrior was a principled man and I get it. Very difficult to read some of his words considering Warrior’s lifestyle and a few possible contributors to his early passing. I know that’s upsetting to hear. It is for me too. Like he said though, we all make choices and have free will to live our life the way we want. He of course also addressed his “death rumors” years prior and here’s another quote: “The day I actually do die, no one will believe it.” We didn’t Warrior, we truly didn’t.

Most won’t read all this from “Warrior’s Web” but I’m so grateful I have and did. He had so much always going on with “Project Warrior” and that was truly commendable. Warrior was a “Founding Father” in his own way with such a unique expression of living life. I thank him for being so much more than a sports entertainer. He was a thinker who became a doer. Let’s all use our “warrior web” to succeed however we can. The body will give out one day but the spirit never will. 💙🙏🏻

P.S. I didn’t mention any of his views on wrestling or possible “new” talks at the time. I think that topic has been written about much on here already… Oh, there was a Jesse Ventura story cut off from”Warrior’s Web.” I wonder what that was about? 🤔
