Once again, I wanted to share a different opportunity Warrior had so you see his 2008 return match in Spain here. This was 10 years after he officially retired from wrestling and also 6 years before he passed. 6 again. Am sure most fans have seen this NWE (Nu Wrestling Evolution) match involving Orlando Jordan but I wanted to learn a little more, so I did. Why Spain? Well, Warrior was there receiving an award in Madrid from an Italian wrestling organization as this all came about. It wasn’t really a “comeback” in true fashion but more of a one time return to the ring. I believe he also wanted to show those cute little girls of his what Daddy did. My favorite parts are seeing them in the ring with him, oh my heart… 💖
I had also found out how he had stomach flu before this match and was quite sick. Hard to believe and none of us would ever know. A while back, I thought to mention this Spain return but always stopped. Sometimes, other stories would come to me and I favored those. The real reason was this- I’d cringe. Yep, there, I said it. Sorry everyone but it’s true. Yes, he was the same age I am now and even trained very differently but alas, I still cringed even watching it again recently. He did some videos promoting the match about “following” him to Barcelona and he and Orlando fought for almost 30 minutes. Many wrestlers today are quite active even past the age Warrior was in Spain but it felt different to me. ❤️🩹
I was so grateful he was able to be there but seriously, I did not want him hurt even though in some ways he was. Of course it wasn’t the same as his days of being Ultimate Warrior but he did many of his traditional signature moves which became nostalgic to see except a few biggies! I didn’t want this idea to come across as sad because that isn’t my intention at all. I’m just being honest as I am. I love that Warrior could make a return to the ring and have the match that he did. Once again though, another moment to remember that us fans will have thanks to all he did.
Have you ever had that one chance again to prove you could still do something from your past? Not for a lengthy time but just for a moment or a day to engage in an activity you loved. I could still teach preschool as a sub if I wanted to. Maybe a curriculum might be a little different but I could, easy. It needs to be an area of your life you’ve moved away from for a while but could just relearn or pick up again. It doesn’t even need to be a former profession but maybe another skill or trade you’ve abandoned and possibly get coerced into trying again. I bet most of us still want to prove either to ourselves or to others that those yesteryear talents exist if we make them reappear. Just always do it for the right reasons as am sure you can figure those out. Warrior explained all his reasons on video to us fans.
Many of us think back to a time in our lives when we were let’s say more athletic, prettier, and all that because of youth. You CAN be athletic again if you start anything. You ARE prettier, you just need to feel it to believe it. Some old ways are meant to be put away to never resurface but in little doses, they can still be part of your life. How about seeing an old friend of yours that you haven’t connected with in years? They might be in town briefly or just for a day. Some may find it awkward or try to impress but some may pick up where they left off as if nothing had changed. I guess it would depend on the person or situation. We might have to adjust but then it could feel like home all over again. Warrior had to train hard for his return match but never forgot his old wrestling moves.
So, warriors- you can have a great comeback or return to something you loved even for that brief moment in time. Just make it ultimately yours in the best way. You can prove that you still have what it takes while tackling whatever is on your “to-do” list for that return. I hope you don’t cringe in the process but I know Warrior isn’t mad at me for that. At least I hope not! I bet the girls remember that special time as am sure they’ll have stories of their own to share. Take pride in knowing you did something or had something pretty important once and you’ll never forget it. Sure, it may not be the same now but some of it can be. Prove that it’s still part of you by reflecting or acting. You get to decide if it’s a one day return or more. That was Warrior’s last match in a wrestling ring but he makes his return every time we see him on videos again.
Go for that return just once and see how it makes you feel. You don’t need to be famous or 10 years older. Just one day do it for you, even if nobody’s watching…
P.S. I totally forgot from “The Tamer Rockstar” post to list the 80’s song “Amanda” by Boston! Yes, I hear it often too (:
P.P.S. Just recently I posted my “Ultimate Warrior Numerology” video on the U.W. fb group and forgot a BIG number connector. Warrior had won the 1984 Jr. Bodybuilding Mr. Georgia title in New Orleans and then 30 years later, he gets inducted into the WWE HOF during WMXXX weekend again in New Orleans… How about that?
