*** A day early warriors since tomorrow brings a second chance for my daughter, how fitting… Please send good vibes that she passes maneuverability with those freakin’ driving cones!!! 🚙🚦ugh….
Second chances. Yeah, that’s hard for us sometimes, isn’t it? The video pic you see is actually of a first chance when the Ultimate Warrior was gearing up for his big win over Hulk Hogan at WMVI. I’m just trying out different pics, videos, or promos I have saved but Warrior does make me think of second chances. Maybe 3rd, 4th, I dunno… 🤷🏻♀️ The reason being is of course as years passed his many comings and goings would always make me wonder. What fans give him a second chance or even beyond? I’ve said this before but it makes me think about a lot of stuff.￼
Those fans still embraced the character although some weren’t too fond of the man himself behind the paint. He did do and say some things that many felt could not be deserving of a second chance but me, I’m not like that. At least not most of the time anyway. I believe in second chances but I’m talking about us that aren’t violent killers or anything similar naturally. Us regular every day humans just doing what we think is best despite naysayers and we all know Warrior was one of those. If you don’t know, you can find plenty out there.￼
I always gave him many chances and for a while, I’d wonder why… 🤔 Celebrities can only do so much if they are someone I’d follow where that would be it, I’m done. As time went on, I literally felt like I was wearing a bulletproof vest. Bring it on— everything will deflect. How could that be? Some beliefs of his would have to bug me right? 😬Well, some did for sure but nothing would ever be enough for me to say I was finished with him. I know those answers now but I really do give second chances, to most that is.￼
My dad remarried 18 years ago shortly after our son (who is at college now!) was born. Yes, I had met and known of my future stepmom as she is great for Dad. A much better match I think then my mom was for him. Siblings may disagree but I can have my opinion. Dad got a second chance at marriage as did she but some may not believe in that. It all depends on your situation in life obviously but sometimes, second chances are what we need to move on if someone gives us one. We all wanna prove ourselves right? Look at first impressions. They rarely stick although some may. We need those do overs to try again at a lesson learned from the past. Warrior got a second chance at marriage as well which brought him daughters and a happier way of life.￼
When would a second chance not be accepted? A toughie for sure but maybe you can think of a time right away. I know it also depends on if a person brings retribution for their actions or even if it seems repetitive. If you were in a relationship and someone cheats, would you give a second chance? These are big topics indeed so what else can be about second chances? I don’t even really know if WWE performers get a second chance after try-outs? They might not even though some would try super hard… As parents, we never give up on our kids but there does come a time where they will stumble, learn, and then get another chance to try, try again. It’s all a part of life.￼
Many opponents in the wrestling business might not want to give another that elusive second chance to possibly win a title again but the boss calls the shots so egos need to be put aside. There are lots of guys who do those “shoot” interviews where they say stories about their time in the ring. You’ll hear much regarding shots for a belt and chances taken on some performers. Warrior was put over a lot, I know he was and believe it or not- did became grateful. It is difficult being back in the day knowing all these chances someone would get and you’d maybe wonder why.￼ I never knew the details of Warrior’s comings and goings back then but I do now—mostly anyway. Vince gave him a lot but he didn’t always want those multiple chances to return. Others in the wrestling world never could understand that and perhaps to this day, still don’t.￼
So~~~ to all you warriors reading today, do you give those second chances maybe more to all or only to some deserving? You’ll have your own answers to contemplate. Did Warrior give them out? I can’t say fully but his approach as the performer mellowed somewhat over time into the real man he became. Loyalty mattered a ton to him, that I DO know so second chances were probably not given to all that’s for sure. Trust is key as it is for me and being with a celebrity can be intimidating whether you know them personally or as a pro. The actions we take will go farther than words of just “I’m sorry.” Do better and be better as hopefully you’ll get a next time to prove it. If you are gifted a second chance, don’t squander it. Maybe you really don’t need it after all but you will know if pursuing is worth another chance. Take it or leave it, the choice is yours.￼
P.S. I KNEW there was a song, but of course as many have this title of “Second Chance” in them… If you know me- it’s gonna be an 80’s one and yes, it did pop into my head as they do… 38 Special had one back in 1988. I like it, look it up 😉 I was singing it for sure.. 🎤
