We Are Never Done 💙😊🫵🏻

“So, when are you gonna be done with all the Warrior stuff?” That was asked by my daughter a few weeks ago. It all started with her looking at silly tattoo pics online. No idea why and some are funny but others were just plain idiotic. 🤪 I bet she’ll get a few someday. Then, she asked about mine as I told her the stories behind each one. The Ultimate Warrior tattoo story is in my book: “Spirit and Belief” but she didn’t remember any details at all. It’ll turn 9 this year on her 17th birthday later in May. When she asked me that question, I really didn’t know how to answer. I wasn’t sure if she met my blog or what as it was recently just renewed another 2 years and then it’ll be close to 10. 😳Come to think of it, I never answered because well~ I can’t. To me, he will never be done (despite his physicality,) but who knows when the blog will be. When it’s time, it’s time, but not just yet.

None of us will ever be fully done. That is why Warrior wanted to leave behind such an ultimate legacy to always be remembered here and in parts unknown. All of us need to believe in our own legacy however it looks. His face in the photo below is depicted being asked questions about the HOF speech. F bombs or not? 💣Well, he didn’t use that word, although I DO now so will keep that part of his legacy alive, ha ha! His HOF speech ended but the impact will never officially be done. We all know that as those who have touched us live forever in our hearts always. I did ponder my girl’s words once more regarding these writings I share.

Do any of you remember me saying how originally I was going to do this for just a year? Yep, that was the feeling but as years progress, it begs the question of what then? When this does end someday as it will, how am I going to feel? Accomplished? I hope so. Sad? Perhaps a little, but I do know obligatory guilt cannot be there. Sure, I had some goals and some were met, others still looming… By the time I possibly feel differently about writing, my kids will be all grown up (almost are now!) and hopefully we’ll be starting anew outside of Ohio. That’s a ways off yet but it’s there. I will find other ways as we all need to move forward in new directions. Again, the physicality of something will be done, but the legacy or even essence always lives on. We shouldn’t feel that sense of obligation just because we are used to something the way it is or has been. I left teaching like the Ultimate Warrior left wrestling. Yes, I, KNOW- not the same at all but the mentality is. There always would have been one more student to teach like there will always be one more fan to entertain. You readers are the same. You will FEEL when it is time to move on and be done with something while beginning again. Sometimes like with us, it was a choice but for some it might not be. ❤️‍🩹

 I gotta add this here as far as readers go.Recently while looking up some other info, I happen to come across this one interesting forum from a few years back. Yes, it was about Warrior (what I was searching,) but I am very much a part of Google in that way. I can’t remember the actual site but a guy posted about finding the “goofyest” stuff. UGH, people- please spell correctly. 🤦🏻‍♀️ He was referencing my blog saying how: ” this girl talks about communicating with the Ultimate Warrior in spirit.” Another guy said something like : ” well, if anyone can do that, he can!” Yeppers! I’ll take that as a compliment and he will too (: Who knows what other comments there were as I couldn’t read them all. This girl… OK, I do sometimes say that but come on~ I’m not 12! That was not a present comment but I had never really read anything like that and I can get defensive. I know not to, as it can be difficult to process. Not everyone is meant to understand or believe any of this. I actually laughed a little, so thanks goes to guy number 2 for some validation. I will be done on Google someday when this blog is no more or the book isn’t searched, but in other ways I never will be and that includes Warrior.

How do you feel about something being done? I guess it truly does depend on if it’s liked by you or not. We are glad when it would be a struggle but then with other situations, it can become difficult ending or seeing it done like a goodbye. Every parent can relate on this but again, we have to move as life is fluid all the time. I know fans were not happy to see the character of Ultimate Warrior leave several times during his run with WWE (F.) As far as we knew he was done and we had no idea if he’d ever be on our TVs again. At least I didn’t. I did get upset and cried a little back then as I felt he was barely there, and then gone….*PAUSE* here. He wasn’t done, but at that time it wasn’t even known by him.

You don’t have to be famous in order to maybe be done with fame, but still easily accessed in this day and age. No, us regular folks can’t be all over the Internet (shouldn’t be anyway!,) and videos, old TV shows, or any of that we aren’t done in people’s minds and hearts. The memories and love will be there and I hope they are for you too. Professional Youtubers with millions of followers isn’t for me. It might be you the reader though, and that’s OK. There’s so many things in life we are done with and some at certain ages, but then other ideas will remain. You can be done with actual schooling in a building but being educated on topics is for a lifetime. You can be done raising kids but will always be their parent. Every year we are done with and a new one and new birthday is upon us. Don’t get me started on stuff I totally WANT to be done with, too many to list! I’m sure you have yours as well.

So, to me as with many of you other fans, Warrior will never be done. I scoff at that. Yes, his fame keeps him going, but he was so much more in spite of all that. So much more. Whatever you feel done with, set it free but know much will still be there. I will never be done with music either as most do know that! 🎼Some will lesson like I said last week, but others will not and there are many reasons why. My Warrior stuff remains always. 🥹

P.S. Last week I got something incorrect… The Boy Band referenced was NKOTB (New Kids on the Block) not N’Sync. Ugh, I always got them all mixed up! 🤬😂

P.P.S. I found another U.W. fan group over on Instagram called: ultimatewarriorofficial. Some others I know follow so check them out! 

Red and Yellow AGAIN! 😬

I’ve mentioned those colors before warriors, but they came into my thoughts again recently with Easter being over. I was looking at a few of my spring decorations while remembering a little negative story. I tell myself every year to forget about it and sometimes I do but this year, I am sharing it on here. Some of those former WWE (F) stars wore red and yellow (one alone and then a few Tag Teams) but I have my own red and yellow story. First off though, can ANYONE answer this? I know I’ve asked it before. OK, fans know Hulk Hogan wore those signature colors for years, but why did they keep repeating often? His tag team with Randy Savage as the “MegaPowers,” Randy with Ultimate Warrior as the “Ultimate Maniacs,” and then Hulk with Brutus Beefcake as the “Mega Maniacs.” I still believe Randy and Warrior should’ve worn pink and green (or colors they wore more!) but not red and yellow. There has to be an answer somewhere… 🤔

Anyways, here’s my “UGH” story. Back in the day when girls planned a bridal shower or were getting married, it was always the same question: “What are your colors?” Yes, this part will be kind of for the gals but maybe you guys know too. For me, I didn’t have colors. I gotta be different, you know?! It was one color~ coral. My shade was more of the orange pink variety and not red. Some would say peach even. The girls carried 6 roses~ 3 coral, 3 cream. My number even then. Too funny! Warrior’s WM6 trunks were very orange, but I always liked orange when most didn’t. He had his 6 moment, I had mine, ha ha. Anyhow, the shower was at my sister’s house at the time. I loved the company, food, and games, but the decorations? NOT AT ALL… ☹️

I walked in thinking this was not for me as there was no coral color anywhere. Um, why not? My sister did it her way and even used tulips when my flowers were roses! I still to this day never got a real answer, even from my mom. It’s all so weird. I did have a good time but was just disappointed. My sis always wanted tulips in her wedding but used roses as well. Even if I got married in the middle of winter, artificial flowers are always what we’d use so if I wanted tulips, I would get them. Her wedding was in September, but really who cares? Use your tulips but my August wedding was roses. Both sisters gave me a watering can and a nice vase as keepsakes with these red and yellow tulips all over them. I kept them out for years in the spring but finally gave them away several years ago. I didn’t need the bad memory attached to myself anymore. Let someone else that wants them, have them. When they had their showers, I helped plan it around their flowers and colors. That’s just what you do or at least I thought so. Don’t get me wrong here. It was very pretty and nice but you plan for the bride, not yourself. I was no bridezilla either but guess I just assumed. OK, former bride rant over.

I must say though, I STILL have a few of my purple tulips bloom outside. Remember them loyal readers? I love seeing all the colors in people’s yards despite this cold spell we are having, but I won’t get just red and yellow ever! When I do think of those colors always, I want the happy. Some of you can have Hulk with the longevity but I’ll take Randy and Warrior any day. I wonder how long the “Ultimate Maniacs” could’ve lasted? So many questions I’d love answered. ❤️💛💪🏻💪🏻

I can also probably do an entire post on the color blue. Much stuff I had when younger was blue when I always wanted pink. That reminds me of “Sleeping Beauty” when the fairies kept changing her dress color. 💙💖I watched that favorite movie of mine not that long ago… I finally got my pink though in a few shades, including a bike but this is red and yellow today. Both sisters always loved yellow, still do. I do in some ways but pink will always be my favorite. I have two rooms painted yellow in my house though. I was born to be different and I’m fine with that but just want respect because of it. When you combine yellow and pink, you get peach. I like the combo. One sister had yellow dresses in her first wedding but not the other. Such odd reasons why as that would never be me. To each their own I guess.

Maybe today’s brides don’t do color patterns, but I still see flowers that complement dresses so a little of it is still there. The red and yellow shower of my day will forever be a mystery along with those former WWE (F) tag teams. Do any of you have a story to share where you placed such expectations on someone or something only to experience disappointment? I bet you do or did, but it does become hard letting it all go. Warrior had people let him down too many times throughout his life and yet we must continue on in a new way. Once we find what works with people who “get” us, it flows easier. One would think family gets us the most and would know our likes or tastes, but sometimes we need to place our trust in a fresh perspective. That can only happen with time and a whole lot of patience. We shouldn’t feel guilty for moving our ideas onto others. It’s really how to evolve despite blood sometimes.

I hope those of you who do have close sisters remain that way as I am not here to bash your relationships at all. Just sharing my red and yellow story that I totally connected to wrestling. Who would’ve thought getting out some spring decor would bring it all back to my memories, despite not having the physical objects anymore? We all have connections with items from the past, but let’s make the good ones count. U.W. Memorabilia anyone? I’ll take those as I’m sure you will too. Just give me roses, not tulips! 🌷Give me pink or coral too. All kidding aside, we can forgive and see the lessons. They were wrong but I can’t give it more power or energy anymore. That’s my lesson. Maybe we are done with seeing red and yellow in WWE? I wouldn’t know anymore. Good memories remain as I let the negative ones go…

P.S. That pic of Ultimate Warrior below describes how frustrated I was back then! I DO love my Bluejay feathers though. They aren’t red or yellow, hehe…

P.P.S. When working with my florist for the wedding all those years ago, she had never used the color coral before ever. I had many firsts just like Warrior did and still do… 🧡💖☺️

Listen to those “Nudges.” 🫵🏻

We all get those little “nudges” that won’t seem to go away but I am thinking about the good stuff here, not the bad. You can call them whatever you like. They can be intuitive hits, signs, or just feelings that are bugging you in some way. I have mentioned plenty on here in the past but one story that came to me was when I decided to get my very first tattoo. No, that doesn’t connect to Warrior (the second one does!) but he had those nudges too. Despite never wanting to go back to WWE, people around him kept nudging which prompted him to finally think about it more and more. He was very emotional going into those WWE offices but aren’t we all glad he made the right decision? I am for sure but now let me share my little nudge of almost 12 years ago. 

I have always loved dolphins 🐬and mentioned them on a post last year. That was a report in 6th grade but by now I was much older. It wasn’t a milestone birthday but I just felt it in me to do something different. My brother and a cousin had just gotten one and hers was a dolphin making a heart with her daughter’s name in the middle. I didn’t want to copy with a dolphin but ugh- isn’t it so wrong to care what others think in that way? Well, mine wouldn’t have names of anyone as that is not what I do. You can have your body art any way that works but I feel differently. My bro got his kids initials as part of his and no, it isn’t that I don’t love mine but again, my passions are just for me and that’s how they get expressed.

Another thought I had was everyone else. I’m so grateful I think another way now. Being how I was with the birth family, this would literally shock the sh*t 💩out of a few! Oh, to be spiteful but I wouldn’t do that. I also am not that typical girl who is going to get inked just to prove it to someone like a dare or something. Nope, so wrong on many levels. You also would never see me sporting a cliché, like a ladybug, butterfly, heart, or many “girly” things. OK, those are beautiful, and I love them all but mine would have to represent something on a much more deeper level to me and I have no personal connection to any of those symbols. I also never wanted words. My brother always thought I’d get “Always Believe” around my small Warrior mask tattoo. I don’t need it because I know what it means and it isn’t worth my time explaining to those who won’t understand. We can, and should always believe in ourselves but nah~ I don’t need the words. I can write my own here or in journals but not on my body. You others are free to do whatever you wish. 💚

So, this “nudge” of sorts stayed with me quite a while. As with any big decision (and yes, this was for me!) you have to sit with it for a bit. Little ones you can be impulsive with as it is good to be spontaneous once in a while but not this involved. It was getting later in the summer and my tattoo idea was still in my head weeks later. We were on vacation and I decided to tell my husband. This was at dinner outside near the lake and I had a few Long Island iced teas. Now, I was ready! 😜🍹🍹He of course is not a fan but respected what I wanted. I was doing this and realistically didn’t have to let anyone know but felt the need to share with him. He had no idea on the Warrior one but that’s been told along with the fact that I have 3… The nudge never went away, and I got excited. That’s key here. You have to be excited about those nudges despite a little fear. 

We all have those passions and interests that just never seem to wane or fade away. I always questioned that with Warrior but of course I know now why. 😉 Even with anything you do, think about how the idea started and why it did. This blog, my book, “Spirit and Belief,” starting a YouTube channel, and so many others began with a slight nudge that turned into more. Of course, there will be those times we might fall flat but don’t look at it as a failure, it’s a lesson. Maybe it just wasn’t the right time. You will also know if you can totally disregard outside influences. I am better at that with others but it’s also about time, money, resources, and all that too. Many times we do need help with projects but allow your strengths to power you through if you truly listen to those inner nudges. I mentioned following my compass last week which is how we need to be. It is hard to abandon an idea for a time but if it comes back as that nudge bugging you again, then you can start to take action. 

Warrior had so many nudges in his life which propelled him to succeed in the way he did. He always mentioned listening to that inner voice we all have. If others think you’re crazy for following that voice, that’s OK. It’s your life, not theirs. Another nudge I have is moving in a few years. Yes it will be a ton of work but is a decision we’ve made peace with and will happen. The feeling is only getting stronger and there are many signs pointing in that direction. You will be filled with lots of emotions while listening to your own WHYS and then HOWS on that certain thing you want to pursue but the good should outweigh the bad. If it doesn’t, give it more thought. Like I’ve said before, good does come from bad. You just won’t be aware of it at the time. Your nudges might not be a tattoo, blog, or any of my stuff but you will have yours like Warrior had his. It might also be risky but ask yourself if it’s worth it. Warrior knows it was worth it for him returning to WWE. Your inner voice always knows. Trust it because that nudge is there for a reason. Listen… 👂🏻👍☺️

P.S. A little break on the emotional posts to lighten up some, hope you enjoy! Remember as well~ your “nudges” can be in your face a bunch or quite subtle. Look for that repetition and it becoming pretty constant. Then, you will KNOW… 

My Chance Encounters 💖💙

Oh my goodness warriors will this be quite the post. First off, I had such a debate in my head over what photo to use this week. I decided on the one below because I took it at 4:14 P.M. That date is in a few days and ends my 3 weeks of “running” on emotion. It was decided when I saw the timestamp so there ya go. I had a couple chance encounters at the latest Holistic Fair and what a beautiful time. How do I begin and what do I share? I’m still deciding as I glance at all my notes. I guess the beginning is a good place so grab your coffee, tea, or favorite beverage and take it all in.

I hadn’t sat for a card reading with anyone in over a year as it is a rarity I do so. Sure, I can draw cards from a deck and use a guidebook like they do (I do at home) but this time, there was so much more. SO much more. I wanted to sign in and decided to sit with another spiritual friend of mine instead of my regular gal. This other girl I was familiar with from my book club and we have chatted a bit, but not in depth. She was running late so I decided to sit in on a house reading with my one friend and this older gentleman who is very well-known around here. Both are spiritual mediums so believe what you want on this. I had attended a few of his group meditations and she was the one who interviewed me for the podcast several years ago. I can still hear her saying “that poor man” about Warrior’s passing and it wasn’t sad for me. I have told that story here but today’s is new. They both were pretty accurate with info coming through, and he is so funny! You need the humor too. It does matter as I know.

They finished and as I proceeded to the hallway, I met up with my former book club leader! She came all the way from Florida to see her first great grandchild (: I got to meet her granddaughter there too. What a joyous reunion we had. Oh, have I totally missed that Earth Goddess Mother! Her face just lit up as did mine. I was meant to go that day and as my tears flowed, I became grateful. 🥰 By then, my card reader walked past me so I told her I would be her first session. She was so happy to see me and had no idea I was coming. Just remember, she had no clue I would be there…

We reminisced for a few moments as she pulled a deck to work with. I am more into oracles and not Tarot but she didn’t know that. The deck she chose I was familiar with and she picked 5 cards. The anchor card was “Compass” so that totally fit for me as I am following my true north! You will know your purpose even if it scares you a little. Another card was “Unexpected Visitors” and I linked that to my Earth Goddess mother mentioned above. The cards did connect and I shared some of my insights as well. I had mentioned how much I enjoyed our time in the book club and asked if she remembered me writing a book. Yes, I KNOW. Finally Warrior comes into this post more but it’s great storytelling, don’t ya think? She could tell I practice and follow many things without me sharing much info at all. Maybe it was my energy or passion for being there, who knows?

It was then how I felt our connection a little more and shared a BIG spiritual trait about myself that few others know. It does connect to Warrior and she proceeded to tell me SHE has this rare trait as well with someone. Neither of us had met another with this same type of experience. Our eyes met as I felt easy and comfortable. I said a few things about his fame and passing while she said how sorry she was. She was sorry for me that it happened. Sorry for ME… I of course knew why she said that but it was heartwarming as I told her I appreciate the sentiment and all is OK… She went on to state how she has many gifts including access to past lives which always intrigues me. Again, take what you will from this. I have found out bits and pieces of a past life of mine from our mutual psychic friend but my healer validates much in our sessions. I will see my card reader again about that as she will do it as a favor to a friend without payment. I was honored but with our shared spiritual trait, we bonded. She did say a few things about seeing me in a past life and validated how I passed which I knew. She did add what happened before that, and it makes sense as I shed some tears later on. That info was new to me. 😓 It affects my life now and I can totally relate. It is surreal, but fits for sure. ❤️‍🩹

After that serious yet interesting few moments, she started laughing. 😂 I had no idea why as nothing seemed amusing. She brought up Warrior again and described him younger. I do believe up there we can choose a young version of ourselves at times. I asked what was humorous. She went on to say how funny and cute we are together. Now, THAT is something I totally agree with. 😉😜She picked up on his humor, I love that. You might say this is vague and I don’t blame you, but there was more in snippets which is how it has to be. I am keeping it all in my heart. 🫶🏻

She also saw me painting which I did briefly last year but don’t see that much in myself. It was therapeutic when I needed that break but others paint, not me. This was a future premonition of sorts, not the past. My daughter is that artist similar to Warrior, but it was never something I saw myself doing. Reason to *** PAUSE*** here… 👩🏻‍🎨🎨 That older gentleman I referenced earlier, who is a medium saw me helping to design artwork for a book cover one day. Wow! He told me this years ago and I never forgot. Would not have seen that coming at all. I did a post on art way back now, but it does tend to be an emotional topic for me. Any of us can do anything but to be placed in that category is just amazing to me. It is all free will and some info we take in more than others… I would like to sit with her soon to explore some of those little tidbits and maybe we can expand on them. I had no idea she also had that gift and she doesn’t follow my work either. It was a chance encounter just like seeing my book club moderator mother. To think it all began with just a card reading and turned into so much more. The Warrior stories were brief but enough details to warm my heart.

Again, she didn’t look him up as very few of these people are aware of him or his fame at all. She had no idea I decided to sit with her, and I had no idea on some small information which got presented to me that day. I have lived longer now than in a past life but we probably all have if you believe. Without a doubt, I KNOW so much more of my purpose, as I truly think THAT life was too short. Now is my redemption through more self-confidence in myself. I’m excited to visit with her again and see what transpires. Chance encounters? Nothing is coincidental. I am OWNing my destiny and will continue to follow that compass…

P.S. Here is part of a text I received from my cousin who I talk to daily. I was having an off day near the end of March. Maybe with all of the Warrior dates being around but I felt like I was in a “fog.” I gave her some info and this was part of her reply:

“Never be sorry… it’s good to explain and to know others do care what you are going thru. All will be good but he knows you are a strong WARRIOR like him and continuing his life’s journey through you is amazing! I’m so proud of you and carry your crystals with you! Love you.”

*** She is one of a kind and I was overwhelmed by her words. She always says how she is not a writer. I totally disagree. 🥹

P.P.S. Last year I remember hearing “The Warrior” song on April 1st which was awesome! This year, it popped up on my radio Easter Sunday, April 9th when I was in the kitchen alone prepping dinner… I found out about Warrior’s passing 9 years ago on the 9th. How truly fitting…. 💙🙏🏻


These Dates I Remember 💙

First off, I woke up with the song “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica in my head… 🎼Maybe I’ll hear it later?

Oh, April~~~ you are here already. It’s that time of year again but TODAY on the actual anniversary, I will be watching Ultimate Warrior’s WWE HOF induction speech of 2014. April 5 fell on a Wednesday before but now I can watch his speech entirely from the “Always Believe” DVD. Happy 33 to WrestleMania 6 on the 1st as well. It’s also time for some more math as dates come into my memory to remember. Wrestlemania 39 has come and gone (oh my!) but my earliest Ultimate Warrior date is March 24, 1991 which was WrestleMania 7. These 3 weeks leading up to April 14 can become quite emotional. The earliest WrestleMania ever was March 17. That one was WrestleMania X8 back in 2002 which took place in Toronto. Both Warrior and I had something significant that year personally. They hadn’t been in Toronto since 1990 for WrestleMania 6. Ultimate Warrior’s last WrestleMania was 12 which was 6 years before X8 in Toronto. Our favorite number has a connector yet again! U. W. was part of 6 WrestleMania’s too. Oh, and Hogan lost both times in Toronto. Sorry, not sorry. 🤭

You might be confused as to why I mentioned April 14. Yeah, I know. That date marked the RAW tribute to Warrior and another story that’s been told here before. That’s why I said 3 weeks. OK, so we also just had the BIG 35 for WM 4, 34 for WM 5, 32 for WM 7, 31 for WM 8 ( which is TODAY!) and 27 for WM 12. Of course, I mentioned 33 for 6 above. There ya go, all of U.W’s WM anniversaries. It will be 9 years for him in a few days since returning to “parts unknown.” How are we almost to double digits? Believe it or not, I start thinking about this time of year in January. Probably because of the new year starting but there it is creeping up slowly. If I hadn’t gotten my own personal connections with these dates, it might not affect me as much.

April 5 is huge for both of us as we have these 3 counts. Mine were 2014 (basketball game on Warrior’s night,) 2016 ( signs falling,) and 2018 (first book event.) All even years and today also marks the first oracle card deck I received on the day of the book event. It was a beautiful three card spread with perfect messages that day. 9, 7, and 5 years today. Warrior also has a 3 count but in the past I only listed 2. April 5, 1992 was WM 8 (in Indiana!) and of course 2014 with his HOF speech. Another got overlooked but I really didn’t have that date memorized. April 5, 2005 was his “infamous” UCONN speech. Not his finest moment, but it is what it is. His dates don’t lineup like mine in a way but there they are always in memory. This blog turned 6.5 yesterday on the 4th and my book “Spirit and Belief” also turns 5.5 on the 7th. I never plan these dates, really I don’t.

That brings me to a mention of the HOF. I still believe some of the enhancement talent or “jobbers” as they were called back then should be inducted. Steve Lombardi comes to mind as he had such a prolific career with the WWE for many years and portrayed many characters. He deserves that honor for sure, as do some others. Referees should be in there too but how great that Tim White is the Warrior Award recipient this year. Why has it taken so long to allow these different performers to be included? It shouldn’t take a life-changing event or anything similar to move in a new direction. Fans deserve this recognition too, for they are part of our history just like that of WWE’s. The Hebner twins should be part of a future class as well. These are just my opinions of course but am convinced many others feel the same. I realize there are conditions that need to be met and they can only induct a certain amount each year but still…

The last thing I will mention here are my thoughts on just a few of the WM 39 results. Yes, the fans wanted Cody to get the titles from Roman. Most are incredibly shocked. I too thought that would happen. I also thought Asuka would prevail over Bianca. My friend brought up an interesting point and it’s one I can see from a business perspective. Perhaps with the sale of WWE to Endeavor,🥸😬 they wanted to go into that with their current champs. I can also see the opposite too with new champs, new sale and starting fresh but maybe WWE feels like they need more “staying power” in a way with keeping those titles on Roman and Bianca. Just my point of view of course but that could be their mindset on all this. SummerSlam is going to be 35 this year so maybe by that time, things will change. We shall see. Roman is close to 1000 days so that is another factor.

Well, that’s enough of that. This date of April 5 will come and go just like it always does but I will have it along with many others in my memory, stored for eternity. These several weeks bring up so much for me in ways undescribable at times but as a warrior, I continue on like we all should. Another sidenote here is this: Warrior’s last WM was 30, he’s been gone 9 years, so 30+9 = 39. This year’s WM. Yes, I know~~~ me and these numbers. It fits though…

Thank you Warrior for all these dates because there is no filter through them. I have mine too. This is always such a busy time as I contemplate my personal moments to ponder. I will never forget any but know I am stronger than the past. Warrior in parts unknown? No, not really. He is here every day bringing his Warrior wisdom and guidance. I will always believe. 🥹🙏🏻💪🏻

P.S. I will continue my annual tradition of lighting a 🕯️ around when he passed on the 8th.. I also got a bottle of 🍷 which I rarely do anymore. I toast him and celebrate the wonderful life he had!

P.P.S. I am hosting Easter this year in a few days which is the 9th… That is when I found out he passed. I also hosted that year. Those stories have been written but everyday brings a new one. I thank Warrior for “writing” his and sharing it with all of us… Love~~~ Kathy ✨💖☮️

My History with Dreaming😴

Hello there, fellow dreamers! At least I hope you are. Even if you don’t remember those “nighttime sleeping ones,” we all have dreams in this life to pursue. Today though, I’m gonna clue you in on the history with my very active dreaming life. I hope then some of you might understand a little more about those vivid yet sometimes wacky Warrior dreams I receive. I was destined to have them come to me anyways but knowing I have been a dreamer since childhood helped out a bunch. I’m not saying if you have that trait, a past celebrity will come in your dreams or even if you’ll remember any. Not all mine are wacky and yet if significant enough, my memory recalls them. Not all are funny, cute, or about Warrior either. It’s a mixed up scene where anything goes but here’s my history.

As a child, I would struggle to fall asleep. I was all set in bed and my sister would zonk out pretty fast in hers. I didn’t. I would have busy days, but my mind couldn’t settle. How could I be wide awake an hour later? That doesn’t happen with kids, does it? My mom would come in and rub my belly or talk quietly but nope, nothing seemed to work. I was never much of a napper as I’ve said before, but this was night when all was quiet and dark. Who would count sheep? Sorry if that worked for you but I always thought it to be very silly. 🙄🐑Are sheep like our fluffy pillows or something? I never understood it and never found out why. The truth is, I was a kid with anxiety but didn’t know that term then. No medicine either. My worries were about friends, school stuff, social activities, and whatever else. Now I know my brain is still like that. Adults are different of course with their worries, and all have anxiety but my sensitivities as a child seemed puzzling. I didn’t count sheep but was the black sheep and still am. That’s OK though. I know better now.

I can’t tell you how this came to be but finally after who knows what amount of time went by, I found my cure two ways. Again, I was young and this might not work for everyone but my intuition or maybe even imagination became a Tag Team helping that little girl self. The first solution was to think of my favorite things. You can sing the song here, I won’t. I will say though I have re-written that famous song in my head with my favorites multiple times. 🥰 It became like a mantra which is similar to my grown-up ones of today. Instead of: “I am grounded, I am centered, I am relaxed, etc…” of now, it was: “I LIKE…” of yesteryear. Some of mine were: ” I like to swim. I like to sing. I like to ride my bike. I like to play with dolls. I like to read books. I like summer. I like the color pink. I like pizza.” Get it? Over time, my brain focused on those things, and it worked! No long sentences either. I even used this technique years later for my daughter and it worked for her too. I was around 10 or so when first doing this so think simple innocent things. Really though, many of those things are still my likes of today.

The next idea made perfect sense to me with all the TV I watched. I KNOW many of you have imagined being in or on your favorite shows, maybe even movies? Possibly not in a dream but you thought about it back in the day I bet. One of the first for me was “The Dukes of Hazzard.” . Who doesn’t love a car chase to get you to go to sleep ha ha? I would be a friend of Daisy’s and I’d write an entire plot for an episode. See, writing in my mind even then. OK, I did “like” John Schneider but again, I was 10. Some storylines would get more involved as I got a little older with other shows, but ya know what~~~ I fell asleep and that was all that mattered. 🥱👏🏻

So, we DO need that imagination as we age too. It isn’t just for childhood. Warrior had said this many, many times. It keeps us being dreamers, (not just at night) but also motivating us to keep going towards that positive goal. It isn’t meant to be disregarded just because we don’t make believe as kids anymore. Imagining helps bring ideas to fruition and gives them life. Look at many success stories of others and you will know what I mean. “Dreams don’t do themselves.” I know that Warrior but they start somewhere. To any wondering- NO, NO, NO about my Warrior dreams. I shouldn’t even have to defend but will for a moment. None of those dreams shared have been me “making them up,” letting my mind grieve way back, or any other excuses one would say. I do believe our imagination DOES work with the Universe to guide as a team. We are not bystanders, although in dreams we might seem to be. They come as lessons, hints on our journey, or areas we need to work on. It could be very broad but they are never without meaning. Yes, some may just be to amuse or connect to your daily life but others go deeper at times. It’s up to us to find the why if we choose to. 

Warrior used his imagination to dream a life he truly wanted whether that was his possible career ideas or more personal. We need to be the same. It might sound silly but we need that child like ability to really get excited about anything that interests us. I’ve had my real life get played out in dreams and then dreams that hinted on my real life. This might not be like you but it is all part of us. Dreams will influence your life in ways sometimes unimaginable. Your history will not be mine but we might intersect along the way during this journey of life. Ya never can tell. 😉 I use to share my dreams with family when younger as some were so weird and crazy, I just had to tell. As time went on, I became more defensive since they meant much more to me and so very personal. They weren’t just passed loved ones either. It wasn’t a joke anymore although some can still be. The audience needed to be changed so it became my job being more selective. 

Write some down if you can and perhaps you’ll begin a little history of your OWN. The weirder ones you’ll remember the most but many remembered are amazing too. If struggling to get to the actual “dreamland,” just don’t count sheep! Try my tricks from childhood or think of new ones. Use that imagination too, it does work. Crystals under my pillow work as well for you spiritual folks. 💎 We ALL dream as my daughter recently learned in her psychology class. I already knew…🥹

P.S. That’s another promo pic from the “Always Believe” DVD. Check out his pants!! More to come… Oh, and 2 of my birthdays are on there.

1st= my 14th (:

2nd= my 20th (:

*** 6 years apart, that number again!

P.P.S. AND, many songs have

“Dream (s)” in the title and I thought of some but none used today. A few days before writing this post, I DID wake up with the song “Imagination” in my head from the movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” How about that? One of my faves, connecting to this post, and I played Charlie’s Mom- Mrs. Bucket in a grade school production back in the day! That’s been shared…. 🍫🌈💫🙏🏻

The Journey of Forgiveness

That’s a big word warriors, I know. Quite the switch from last week’s dream. I debated whether or not to resurrect yet another post idea from my “Spirit and Belief” blogging days. First, I thought to say “A Lesson in Forgiveness” but that sounded so preachy like gloom and doom or something. That’s not what I want to do but that word of forgiveness looms about, doesn’t it? For some of us, it can be quite easy based on our own experiences but for most~~~ it’s HARD… I know many of you can think of numerous times were either you had to forgive someone or you yourself had to be forgiven. First off, do this for me. Forgive yourself before anyone else. You read that right. I do and you should too. Once you do, it will become easier dealing with others. I have often said how we are hardest on ourselves and give that negative self talk time to get in our heads. Just truly catch yourself and say things like “delete, cancel, or erase.” Every time you beat yourself up for not saying, doing, or even thinking the right thing, stop it right now. 🛑 You can do it because we need the positive like Warrior said. I need to keep practicing what I write to all of you too.

The photo I used today is a funny story. Once watching the “Always Believe” DVD, there were so many photo choices for me as this was one of them. It took forever to get the right shot of him smiling but glad I got it. When walking through WWE’s HQ “halls,” was Warrior making his way back (not just literally) into forgiveness? Quite possibly but obviously not at that exact moment. The Boss, legends, and current roster were all on the edge of their seats just waiting to hear what he had put into his HOF speech. Even after being gone 18 years, would he still be bashing most or trashing them? Sure, Warrior mentioned a few things but I’m quite positive he shocked many with his different demeanor. People mentioned forgiveness, as yes- Warrior was genuine but were the others receptive and then accepting? Hard to know for sure as Warrior didn’t have the opportunity to become that ambassador. I want to believe they accepted this “new” Warrior and would in turn offer forgiveness back. He needed to do that and they all needed it too. He made peace like what was said and because of that, the extra baggage that entailed didn’t go with him to parts unknown like it sure can.

Warrior’s example always gets me thinking of my own relationships with some who have wronged me. Are there some things in life super hard to forgive or get past? Absolutely YES just like a few in Warrior’s life as his speech mentioned. Forgiveness is tricky because I like you thought it differently. The other person may never reciprocate but you need to practice that word for you, not them. By just stating an intention for the goodness of forgiving, you are sending a powerful message. We don’t even have to physically be with those who have hurt us. You can voice it aloud to yourself, write a letter, (I know that’s challenging) but then burn it, or just move forward in a way that works. We need to take some action instead of saying we will and then don’t.

Even if it doesn’t come to you, try again another day. Be willing to change and really put some effort into it, the benefits will come. I truly believe forgiveness is one of if not the most important “lesson.” After all, we do need to learn. It is part of our purpose here but we have many. What a lifelong journey it becomes. I often wonder about forgiveness being given to Warrior’s Dad from him. He knows that whole story now behind his Dad leaving the family even more and why it had to happen. At least that is what I believe but we all probably have those stories with our loved ones in spirit. It takes so much to put that word of forgiveness into action but is necessary for our growth.

It heals us in ways we can’t fully understand. I have done a lot of work on this. It is much trial and error, patience, and time. Do it now before you get to parts unknown with all this unresolved. I won’t tell you how to specifically forgive but just look at your life and see who or what needs to be let go in a way. The band Firehouse” whom Warrior references in some videos had a beautiful song called “Let Go.” I’ll link it at the end. It came to me once working out. No idea they did a song like that. Give it a listen, it’s very powerful and exactly what I needed to hear for different reasons but still fit. Its message can be many things but forgiveness does factor in as well. All the answers are inside you which is part of a lyric. Warrior said that too. I cried, of course. 🥲

Oh boy, is this post getting to me but it’s what came so that’s what I write. I believe in forgiveness and forgiving. I hope you do too. It took Warrior years to get to that point in his life but it served him well living where he did with his Warrior girls. I’m not telling you to move although we will be in a few years. Your perspective shifts and you evolve as we all should. Do we completely change? No, I don’t believe so. Some may think otherwise but deep down, we still are US… We need to advance though and relationships are such a huge part of this. Warrior reached out to Linda McMahon about his girlfriend Dana at the time and also wanted to reach out to Vince after his first daughter was born. See, even Warrior had it in him but not enough back then to start the process of true forgiveness. I’m still not there with some but am learning. Many may say Warrior did all that with the return to WWE because of his health condition. We may never fully know but that process started long before 2014 and aren’t we grateful it happened? I know I am… 💙

Bring that forgiveness into your life and learn to let go. It is a journey and a big lesson but one we all have in common as humans on this earth in these physical bodies. Yes, it can be messy and emotional but so worth it in the end. When your time comes to parts unknown you can say: “I did it for Me!” However you get your inspiration, just try forgiveness. You will know the story someday. Live for now. Let the present moment be your “present” to yourself. 🎁

P.S. Here’s “Let Go” by Firehouse…


P.P.S. I checked and last week’s dream made number 30… ( he has not been in them all but the reference is always there…) beautiful Warrior connection, especially this post… There have been others that were little but the biggies make 30… 🙏🏻🥹😴

My Wandering Tent Dream ⛺️😴💙

I do realize this title sounds bizarre but you’ll understand as the post continues on. This dream took several twists and turns with so many people popping up, it was hard to keep track. No wonder sometimes I wake up like I hadn’t slept at all. 😲 I do go everywhere when I dream, ya know… The full moon of last week brought other bizarre dreams too and it was in Virgo which is my sign. 🌕♍️ I’m sure few of you are “Astro” buffs but I follow somewhat. The moon does affect me in ways it never did years ago, so these dreams could be part of that, but not all. Let’s begin, shall we?

This seemed to be at a fairground or something similar. That takes me back to another dream many years ago, but it has been told already and is in my book: “Spirit and Belief.” I was with my husband and son in this dream, no daughter. That’s OK as she was in a dream with Dana and Mattie of Warrior’s family so this time it was me and the guys. We had a bucket of chicken like from KFC and were just walking around looking at everything. Humor follows me everywhere. 😅 My husband wandered off (very typical of him at times when we are shopping together in real life,) and then my son went to go find him. Really? Let’s leave Mom with the chicken bucket as we just go off without her! That was oddly weird. Guess I just assumed I’d meet up with them somehow later. There was so much to see, I just had to keep going.

Then, I saw what seemed to be a small tent like those strange shows at the fair with “Mermaid Girl,” “World’s Smallest Horse,” or something like that. I remember seeing “Gorilla Girl” years ago. All smoke and mirrors with strobe lights of course but silly fun. No one was in there, but a movie was playing. Yes, another movie again but not quite the same. I immediately saw Warrior’s face on that burlap side of the tent wall similar to a hologram. The bucket of chicken and I grabbed a chair without looking and sat to watch. Good thing I didn’t miss the chair! Most have a bucket of popcorn at the movies, I had my chicken. 🍗 I’m still laughing at this. 🤣 Anyways, when I sat down, I knew right away how this was the second movie Warrior made. I actually said :“this is the second movie he made and I never saw it!” To any confused, he WAS planning to sign on to star in another movie after “Firepower” but left Hollywood before that could happen. If you recall, I had another dream of Warrior in a 🎥 similar to “Conan the Barbarian” but this time was different. Instead of Conan like Arnold, it was more like “The Terminator.” Who was playing this movie and why wasn’t anyone else around? Was this just for me? Had it been playing? Always questions…

I seemed to stay in that tent for a while and nobody else ever joined me. Here’s a little bit of the plot. Warrior was a cyborg and left his mostly “human” life to fight crime. A true superhero indeed. No idea how he became a cyborg but I remember seeing lightning strike him and then a scene like when your body turns into a skeleton. You see flashing bones in a way. Yep, that’s what I saw. Years went by in the movie and this teenage girl had to find him. She was his daughter, although he didn’t know. He was pretty famous as this cyborg superhero but I had no idea he was being followed. She finally told him who she was and had proof in someway. She stayed with him as they continued to fight crime together. No true ending as that was all I saw. Guess I had forgotten about my family, oh no! Were they looking for me? I had to leave the tent but what an interesting movie for sure. I was happy to have finally seen his second movie!? Would he have taken on a similar role if things lined up— who knows? Maybe I was given another possible future 👀…

It was then how I kept wandering and saw so many other things that seemed out of place but really~ it’s common place in my dreams. This part felt like a scene from “This is Your Life.” First, I saw my brother-in-law and his wife. They seemed to be walking somewhere but I never felt like anyone saw me. Next, it was my mom and stepmom carrying covered dishes of food like they were going to a potluck or something. Was this still the fair or another place? They were talking but I never spoke to either, maybe I was invisible? I could see lots of streets and it was more open like with cafés, shopping, and people eating. All of a sudden I looked and saw my childhood best friend’s sister. She was seated at an outdoor table chatting with some friends. I haven’t seen her in years, so why now? Then, there was a big above ground pool like what we have in our yard but I looked down and I was in it! How did I change into a swimsuit? This was getting ridiculous as it went along.

By that time in the dream, I believe lucidity set in as I told myself to wake up and get out of there. No clue on if I ever found my boys or not but I got out of the pool and headed over to a big grassy field. It seemed to go nowhere but then I finally did awaken. I have tried to put all these pieces together that happened after Warrior’s movie. It could’ve just been people I have known, although some interesting pairings. The BF’s sister is the odd one that doesn’t connect but maybe something is going on with her. It is what it is. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ In the beginning, I thought maybe an abandonment issue but I didn’t really know. I do have holiday issues as well with family so that could explain it needing to be resolved. I just have to keep going down my road and not worry so much about others and their detailed lives. It sounds selfish, but truly isn’t. The boys just had to do their own thing so I could do mine, and that included being in that fair tent all alone watching Warrior. Well, not entirely since I did have my chicken bucket! 

I always thank the Universe for showing me aspects that either need to be healed, not feared, or maybe just observed. I too always thank Warrior for showing me aspects of his life however they come in whatever form. The movie was really cool and obviously presented to me for a reason. The other stuff is a little harder to figure out. Maybe some of you have detailed dreams like mine and yes, they do seem a bit much (that’s putting it mildly, I know!) but it’s been my whole life. Warrior in them has not been of course, but they all have purpose and I am grateful. Now, the next time I get a bucket of chicken I’ll think of that fair tent with Warrior as a cyborg. I’ll also have to watch my guys the next time we are together and see what happens!

P.S. As Arnold said in “The Terminator” movie: I’ll be back!” He met a young “Warrior” years ago when bodybuilding… 🏋🏻‍♀️

P.P.S. It is a rarity that I pre write these in front of anyone but the Warrior part was already written so I could just concentrate on the rest. We were all in the living room and of course I get asked what I’m writing, ugh… I did say a little about the boys, chicken, and the tent but left out particulars! My girl starts making me laugh by showing goofy pics on her phone. They were buckets of chicken, different types of tents, and so much more. It was hysterical but I did actually finish writing after all her shenanigans! 😅😂🤣

My Spiritual Hope 🎞️💽💙

Don’t freak out warriors. I’m not getting all “heavenly” here by preaching about hope although I always can but those that have been with me know some of my favorite topics. Movies and music. It’s movie time once again and this had been written on my previous blog of “Spirit and Belief” (also the book title.) It is worthy of a post here today. As usual, I like to do a little “flashback” for those that are new. It is a small reflection on sadness but it does connect so here we go. When Warrior passed, I wanted to get out my Ultimate collection of things and of course WM6. I was planning on watching it but alas, our VCR was now in the basement not hooked up and I only had it on VHS, no DVD. I could’ve looked into clips on WWE or YouTube but nope, I wanted mine. With all my shock, somehow the right wires wouldn’t connect and I only had sound, no picture. I couldn’t concentrate.

For some reason, I called my husband at work (it was lunchtime) and told him I wanted to watch one of my movies. He asked which one? Huh? Why did THAT matter? I got out the one on top-“Hope Floats” starring Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr., love them both! I even left it out so he’d think later on I actually wanted to watch it. Oh, those emotional times. Never did I figure it out as more despondency filled me up. But, like one of the last lines in that movie of “Hope Floats” says: “just give hope a chance to float up and it will.” It did eventually and boy did I need it to. I also LOVE the song from the movie and yes- to any wondering- it is on my playlist. You can look that up on your own. Garth Brooks singing? Yes please!

This takes us to my other movie collections and some of you will notice a “running” theme. They ARE good movies though and I do love comedies but these, well, am sure you’ll get it. If you haven’t seen any- just Google the title and you’ll find a description. Here’s a list of some I own and a few were on VHS back then. “Meet Joe Black,” “Sister Act,” “GHOST,” “Field of Dreams,” “Braveheart” ( I have the soundtrack on tape, …) “The Wedding Singer,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” ( that’s been told!) “When Harry Met Sally,” ( a fave!) “Wild Hogs,” (another that’s been told) “Sleepless in Seattle,” “Forrest Gump,” “Wedding Crashers,” and so many more I can’t think of without looking. Here’s another side note: I have the “City of Angels” CD soundtrack (think WM7 commentary…) There’s a song on that one.., OH MY… WOW… It was not one played often or on the radio then. Do I listen to it? You bet, hehe… 🤭 So, once I looked at some of these movies- I found a theme. They are not in order up above but can you find it? It actually upset me. Well, I did like some of the guys in those movies- Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt, and Kevin Costner but that’s not it. Anyone remember my post about our South Dakota trip? “Dances with Wolves” is another one but I don’t own it… Out in that Santa Fe Truck Stop Diner area is where parts of the D.W.W. movie was filmed. Ok, back to your guesses. I was getting side-tracked…

Many of them, including the music involves some sort of spiritual idea or even hope in some way. I remember getting most of them as birthday or Christmas gifts from my mom years ago and how happy I was. I told myself after Patrick Swayze died that I would never watch “GHOST” again. Um, I did and then it was Warrior’s turn as time went on. Years prior, my youngest sister and I loved parts of that movie and Whoopi Goldberg’s character of Oda Mae. No, I am not a medium but the scene when Sam keeps singing to her as she’s trying to sleep, so funny! Warrior doesn’t sing to me but I do get some pretty constant messages in songs, just not like Oda Mae. 😉 How about the one ghost (I so prefer spirit but will use that word here) named Orlando. Think Warrior’s last match of 2008 in Spain. Yeah, great movie but get this…

When I finally did watch it again, the loud ringing in my ear came during the subway train scene with Sam and another ghost. This man doesn’t like Sam in his territory but wants to help him. It’s all about training the mind to move objects. Why that scene? Maybe the mind reference but there it was, ringing loud and clear. As Sam says to Molly at the end: “ It’s amazing Molly. The love inside, you take it with you.” Life imitating art for Patrick just like Warrior but that time watching, I wasn’t sad. It was beautiful in a new way for me and I finally got it. 🥲

I just really liked these movies despite their somewhat emotional messages but when I saw a connection, it perplexed me. Little did I know how they would influence my spiritual development or why I was attracted to the storylines. Ok, I did have some personal investment but no idea on the deeper meanings. Another one I don’t own but love the song from is “Chances Are.” Even though it’s kinda a bizarre afterlife story, I loved it. It is creepy with how this man comes back to his family but still a touching film. Do I believe that’s how reincarnation works? I sure hope NOT but again, not going all heavenly on you all here. The song is a duet with Peter Cetera and Cher. It’s from 1990 like “GHOST” – great year so guess I am “outing” myself again. I’m a sucker for romance. 🥰 Can’t believe I never got that movie. So many to choose from and no, I don’t do it purposefully. If you look back at my list, you’ll see others that don’t have that theme. “Sister Act” maybe but I sang in choir and so have my own memories. Plus, I am really good at guessing the movie years! It bugs my husband but when it is something I like, I will know. Most of the time I get it right and if I’m off- it’s usually only by one year. He wins other little silly competitions.., 😜

I hope I didn’t give away too many spoilers here with these movies. Maybe I’ve inspired you to check them out as I can’t assume you have seen them all. They did become my spiritual hope as movies are a break from our everyday lives. I’ve even mentioned many animated Disney films on here too. “Inside Out” , that was a biggie… Interesting how some will connect to a certain person, place, or thing in our lives but then somehow give us the hope we need to continue. I do believe in hope but we still need to turn it into an actionable word because it just won’t do itself. You can have that hope and then work at it. Don’t put all that you are into one hopeful basket. We can’t just hope for the best but try our hardest to make it happen. That’s how it works.

I still love those movies but don’t want the sadness all the time. The Universe was planting my spiritual hope before I ever really knew it. The hope I aspire has to come from within myself and Warrior’s spiritual energy gives me the strength I need as well. Just give hope that chance in whatever you face and along with the tag-team partner of yourself, the Universe will float it up… I really need that movie on DVD. Go watch some goodies you own! Now, I have “Henry the VIII” in my head from “GHOST!” And no- I also didn’t just love “Braveheart” for the face paint! Warrior loved it too but I would’ve had no idea back in 1995 when it came out (:

P.S. Check out my book for another movie reference connection to “Bruce Almighty.” I mention one scene but always have others… The book is over at Amazon and other outlets, thank you! 📗🙋🏻‍♀️🥹

Always Ultimate Belief 💙

Hi there warriors. How are you? I hope you are doing well as this new month of March begins. Spring is just around the corner here in my neck of the woods, so I am ready for more of the sun. ☀️ This week I decided to stand by a statement I wrote last week regarding the “Always Believe” DVD. Now that I have finished watching it in its entirety, I do have some views. If anyone hasn’t seen it or even “The Ultimate Collection,” you might not want to read no further. I am not dissecting it all of course but just wanted to touch on a few comparisons and contrasts of both. It’s a rarity I have a part 2 but it has been done before. I also have LOTS of good photos from AB coming up. You’ll be seeing my living room in many… Can you believe it? Another common date is coming soon. You fans can possibly guess based on my writings but that’ll be next month. Let’s stick to today for now.

I will say this, and maybe it’s that teen girl coming out but I love all the promos and interview segments on AB. Sometimes, those get “eye rolled” like I have said when it comes to the nonsensical ramblings of the Ultimate Warrior. They excite me more than a few of the quick little squash matches of AB that I found not entirely necessary. Definitely a few “pause” moments for sure and a biggie for me was Warrior’s backstage interaction with Scott Hall a.k.a. “Razor Ramon.” I know the whys. They were inducted together and I have a few personal stories involving him that have been shared.

His passing last year brought the ringing in my ear just before finding out and he was part of a movie reference years ago. I loved how he said: “What DVD?” Thank you Scott for not bringing up THAT one… Vince’s book “The Little Engine that Could” also gave me pause… 🥹 🚂 That post of mine WAS a part 2 and I have the book as well- in 2 places. Beautiful story and YES Warrior~ you thought you could and you did… I had seen that clip on AB and have it saved…

A different pause for me ( and then I’ll compare a little) was when they mentioned that OTHER DVD. Guess I am talking about it and not Scott… I realize this was part of their lives but what struck me was a “statement” that listed negative aspects of Warrior like a, b, c, etc… I am not repeating them but some were actually laughable to me although probably would’ve angered me back then. One statement I really DID write about out of those 5 listed (not to worry) but *SIGH*, I digress… Both DVD’s did highlight Ultimate Warrior’s major feuds with some Superstars and show different matches so they are nice to have. His beginnings and WCW are also included on U.C. and AB but for me, many more differences than similarities.

So grateful to have WMVI, VII, and XII on U.C. and let’s not forget the book “A Life Lived Forever” which contains lots of content as well. Some repetition with both DVD’s but still cool to look back upon. Now, I can have more references instead of saving much from YouTube. Oh, all 3 were released in an April. Another *SIGH.*

Many matches, promos, and speeches NEVER get old to me and never will. The “Brother Love” segments are always entertaining and I loooove “Amanda Ultimate Warrior.” Seeing his character with kids will forever be etched in my heart. I am very thankful Warrior had his own in 2 beautiful girls who am sure have kept all those amazing hand drawn birthday cards and such from their Daddy. That artistic talent of his was incredible and my girl has it too… 🥰It pulls at my heartstrings every single time… I also love how some autograph signings and his personal barn gym videos were included. A nice addition indeed.

How about the funny from AB because I NEED that too. I love when Warrior mentions “The Golden Era” of the company by saying: “the letter that comes after E!” For all those wondering, he meant how WWE used to be WWF. I laughed at that since I still will use the old name myself at times. Warrior’s talk with Sgt. Slaughter was great too as I had seen it before. I would love to see the actual footage with the 🥔. How cute that he brought a potato to show Warrior! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s ok. Just know it was a funny moment between them. At ease, at ease..

Despite all that had happened, I still love Vince McMahon’s laugh and extra special seeing him laugh during that time instead of always listening thru videos. 😂 On the flip side, the men crying will be a soft spot for me as that trait has always been there in my life but the laughing matters too, it truly does. Warrior introducing his girls to Vince and Triple H as his “babies” is so endearing. I know they knew their names but he says babies about 3 times or so. I wonder what Indy and Mattie were thinking? Thanks Dad but am sure they knew why… 💖💖

What could I do without? Well, let’s see- Papa Shango and Undertaker both come to mind of course. The voodoo man isn’t on U.C. so there’s that. 🙄At least the Ultimate Warrior got his revenge on both. Some other matches were kinda wasteful in my opinion. There is no match with the “Freedom Fighters” on both but according to most, they weren’t that good until the “Blade Runners”, ah well. I would’ve liked to have seen the “mind games” with Goldust which was more entertaining than what they chose from RAW to put on AB. Yes, I know how Warrior’s final match with Owen Hart went down but it was such an odd ending on the DVD. I guess that mirrored real life as Warrior went on and stayed positive like he always did.

There is so much more I can write about but I need to keep moving forward too… Now, I can finally watch his HOF speech all the way through without just seeing clips. I hadn’t seen the whole thing in such a long while… His final RAW speech I won’t watch that often but that’s just me. Other stuff will be on repeat for sure as I have my favorites. I will always have my OWN ultimate belief in Warrior that eclipses his wrestling memories. They will all indeed live forever… 🫶🏻🙏🏻💪🏻

P.S. I wish they could’ve interviewed someone else Warrior worked with like maybe HTM? He always had good stuff to say but just my P.O.V…

P.P.S. My bad… never thought to scroll more on line when looking up this DVD. Let’s just say I will be returning mine and getting it on Blu-ray.. ugh!!!!!! Many bonuses I neglected to see so am excited when that comes! 😬

*** Find my book “Spirit and Belief” on Amazon and other outlets (: They are short stories on how Warrior’s energy inspired my psychic gifts to come thru more. Lots on my beginnings in watching him in wrestling, dreams, humor, family stuff, and more! Thank you for the support . 🙋🏻‍♀️👏🏻
