True Ultimate Timing

Well, Warrior fans~~ we made it to another year of this blog. It’s not official for a few more days but happy 3rd anniversary to warriorwritings (: To think I only thought of writing this for a year. The inspiration and motivation never stops. Time is relative and yet fleeting. THANK YOU ALL! πŸ₯° Especially Mr. Warrior. πŸ’™

Am sure you’ve heard that expression of “perfect timing.” Do you associate this with a good or bad feeling? I guess it could be both but let’s focus on the good, shall we? Think of all the stuff in your life and how one thing led to another. Kinda reminds me of the 1983 song “One Thing Leads to Another” by The Fixx. It all lines up my friends with that timing just for you. Whether you think personal or professional, it truly is ultimate.

Speaking of that word, how about the timing of Ultimate Warrior’s career? That photo is shortly after his IC title win over HTM. (Honky Tonk Man) He even said : “it was the right time.” I personally believe him winning the Heavyweight title over Hulk Hogan was also the right time despite some naysayers. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻

Sometimes we need to do months and years of work while achieving success but then again, sometimes things literally get dropped in our lap to create that perfect timing. Has this happened to you? Am sure the first has but what about the second? For me, it was my 1st job lining up without a ton of work and yet again when I found U.W. items at my preschools. It can be both and probably happens more times than we realize.

If Dana had never walked into Warrior’s Gym back in 1994, they may have never met. True ultimate timing at its best. If I hadn’t really started following U.W’s career thru my T.V. set as a teenager, I wouldn’t be doing this today. Not to mention this blog becoming a book Spirit and Belief that got brought up as an idea thru another’s blog who knew about Hay House. All true ultimate timing once again.

You can apply this type of scenario to any aspect of your life really. Again though, no downers with the bad stuff~~ including Warrior. Go ahead. Right now list all the good situations in your life and how the timing just seemed to line up. A bit of advice here is that technically, there will never be that perfect time to do anything. If things line up, great. If some things aren’t quite right, go for it anyway. You’ll be glad you did. I can list so much on that topic alone! It may never be the perfect time to switch jobs, move, get married, have a baby, end a relationship, start a new project, or whatever. When you look back on that event, hopefully you will say it WAS true ultimate timing after all.

I have often said that Warrior leaving the WWF back in 1992 also seemed to be the right time. At first- NO! Such frustration and questions then for sure. In the end though, he never would’ve been able to begin his career in a new way and then be fully present with his family life. Just to add myself as part of this somewhat, I could’ve been married around 22-23 in order to please this guy’s family. That was the “norm” for marriage then, right? Well, thankfully that didn’t happen or I never would’ve met my husband or had our kids. Plus, I was never in love with that guy anyway like they wanted me to be. True ultimate timing choke holded me into submission on that one!

It is o.k. at times to wait on a decision if it seems a little off. Just don’t wait too long as opportunities may pass you by. You also may never fully know the timing of events until it’s your turn to travel up to parts unknown. Then, you’ll know. The timing of your life can be similar to another like many things I did connected with Warrior. Crazy as that sounds to some, it’s true. Even if yours don’t match with another, it is still your timing and the life you are meant to have.

True ultimate timing comes all the time in many ways. The good and the bad. We need them all to continue on everyday. As warriors, timing truly is everything.

P.S. 3 years= a 3 count for the WIN!

Peaceful Warrior Perspective πŸ™πŸ»πŸ§‘

Have any of you seen this video when The Ultimate Warrior appeared on “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee” back in August 1990? I’ll link the clip at the end but it’s a perfect example of today’s topic. I remember watching this interview back then and thinking : “Who’s THIS guy?” I had never seen him like that before. Ever. If you’ve also watched “The Arsenio Hall Show” episode a few months prior to “Live,” you’ll see two very different Warrior perspectives.

Several years back when I began this blog, I included a definition of what the word warrior means. The word peaceful is not included at all but I believe it connects. We all evolve and even Warrior himself did. He made peace in his professional relationship with the WWE, Vince McMahon, and some others at his HOF induction of WMXXX. He made peace with the fact that the Ultimate Warrior character was strong and tough yet soft and gentle.

Regis Philbin compared his character as being “a link to the Indian ancestors” while Kathie Lee chimes in “like a Spirit.” Native Tribes fought like warriors and also strived for peace within the spirit. The character depicted two very unique sides on both of those shows and yet still very much him. Think about it though. Morning T.V. vs, Nighttime T.V. A different audience with different perspectives for sure. The “Live” interview to me anyway was truly him without acting. Naysayers get slammed!

We may never fully abandon our core beliefs and shouldn’t but over time, a new shift begins. The battle can turn to acceptance and eventually peace if we allow it. Sometimes, we need to either step back or completely leave a current situation in order to view a new perspective. Warrior did. I have and I hope you have at some point also. He always advocated for anyone to step outside their comfort zone and embrace variety. I totally agree but then again, there are legit reasons why people stay put. It does become their life. Many wrestlers stick around after their career and I know this frustrated Warrior. He finally admitted on the Ultimate Collection DVD why they love it so much to stay.

Years go by and we all age, mature, and learn new things. When we are in a career, relationship, or anything that involves longevity, it can become robotic. We just go thru the motions but still remain true to ourselves. Sure, we can compromise but sometimes never fully understand another’s point of view. It is a challenge admitting mistakes but we need to stay open to all sides of the story.

Retirement may bring that sense of peace to some or maybe just taking a long break. We are all warriors battling on with whatever comes our way in life and am sure you can relate. To get to that peaceful state of being takes time, patience, and effort. It’s there but we need to do the work too. My life has evolved so much especially these last few years. I try so hard to have more understanding of another’s circumstance instead of judging or criticizing right away.

Warrior had A LOT to always say on many topics. Some controversial, some not. Being a father changed his perspectives somewhat over time. I have seen plenty of peaceful interviews with him and yet the dramatic, frenetic ones get more recognition. We all have both sides and should defend our passions while agreeing to listen as well. Every human being needs to work on this everyday including famous ones.

Warrior’s life became more private as years went by and he needed that. He could slip into character whenever he wanted and still had that intense personality. He did have peaceful perspectives despite critics. As fans, we thrived on that Ultimate Warrior character but I always liked seeing the other side. I kinda know this now with him in spirit..πŸ˜‰

It’s great to get drama and excitement but at the end of the day, the peaceful heart matters. I’m not getting all mushy here but think about this for a moment. 🧐We may disagree but again like I’ve said many times before, respect counts. Find that peace inside of you warriors. You can still fight those battles but believe in the Ultimate spirit of a new perspective.

Ultimate Maniacismsβ€οΈπŸ’›

WOW! I loved these two as a tag team for so many reasons. First, a little story is mentioned in my book Spirit and Belief along with other Randy stuff. This is so much more. More maniacisms that are truly ultimate. Randy “Macho Man” Savage and the Ultimate Warrior had the colors, intense personalities, and energy but behind all that– they were friends who respected each other. That’s the best for me. They were also extremely funny. At least I thought so. I do believe their partnership was very unique because of the similar qualities shown by both.

That takes us to this story. These are mywarriorwritings but today it is Radiant Randy. The two first dreams I ever had with Warrior also involved Randy and also in my book. If you recall or if new– here’s a flashback of when I mentioned working with Warrior at one of my preschool jobs. That was “The Bluejay Feather Dream” on 2/27/19. Well, guess who else I worked with in a dream? Yep–Randy.

As you may know, I have some psychic intuitive abilities so once I thought of this dream more, it does kinda fit. I don’t make these Spirit Visit Dreams up and even if I did, Randy wouldn’t be in them. O.K., maybe as part of the Ultimate Maniacs but that’s it!

Are you ready? Here it is without further adieu. *** Us teachers were standing in the lobby at work and this time it was exactly as it looked unlike in some other dreams. It was me, some teachers from my past, and our boss. In walks Randy with Elizabeth and she’s holding a BABY! What? They never had a baby. Randy shook the boss’s hand and hugged the rest of us as Elizabeth followed him with the baby. At first I thought possibly she used to work with us but based on Randy’s actions, he definitely did.

We were all ohhhing and ahhhing over the baby BOY. Randy then scooped him up and began to show him off as only a proud Papa would. I never saw the baby’s face but it was a boy. I woke up with so many questions. Warrior was not even in it so how was this happening? Why would I be shown Randy and Elizabeth with a baby?

Here’s a few of my ideas so I hope you understand spirituality since these types of dreams aren’t always obvious. If you have ever had any remember there is a purpose and they are just for YOU. Your beliefs and connections matter. Well, here’s my take if you will… It COULD mean an insight into what might’ve happened. They did try for a baby( so I heard.) It COULD also mean spiritually that they are working together to help babies up in parts unknown. Perhaps little spirits that were miscarried, stillborn, or passed young? Just to get a dream like this is a gift despite possible meanings. I was ultimately honored. πŸ’œ

After seeing the retirement match of WrestleMania VII a few times between U.W. and M.M., I thought differently. Obviously, everyone loved the Randy and Elizabeth reunion. If you haven’t seen it– a must watch for true fans. That match is hard because everyone except the referee is now gone. Maybe they can re-create it up above, commentators and all? My thought remained. I always hoped Randy and Elizabeth reconciled and that they found some happiness. My mind goes to that every single time… Maybe that brought the dream? I don’t know for sure…

Is Randy working with me too along with Warrior? This dream was a first of its kind for sure. It was beautiful and happy and that baby made all the difference. Without Randy and Warrior working together, my ultimate maniacisms wouldn’t be possible. I needed to acknowledge Randy separately since he is involved too sometimes. Of course the Dream inspired this post but I still needed to thank Randy.

I loved Warrior’s tribute to the Macho Man after he passed so will include the YouTube link at the end. He shared antidotes, funny stories, and the personal touch lacking during Hulk Hogan’s HOF induction speech posthumously for Randy in 2015.

I’m not bashing Hulk but he could’ve said so much more about Randy besides being “intense” and “jealous” because of Elizabeth. It was sad that after so many years, that’s all Hulk had to say despite their differences. Randy deserved better. He got better from his friend Mr. Warrior.

I will always have my Ultimate Maniacisms along with the wonderful dreams. I worked with both of them, can you just imagine??? Music is also my THING so here’s another connection. One day after seeing their iconic “Riding on the Edge of a Lightning Bolt” promo, later on Pandora I heard “Burnin’ Heart” by Survivor. That song is from the Rocky movies which also has “Eye of the Tiger” but this song mentions being a warrior. Randy says in the promo: “we are ultimate survivors…” The album cover is called Ultimate Survivor. The tiger on the front is red and yellow too. The Ultimate Maniacs win again! Why is it always those colors? They should’ve used pink and green since both used them often!! πŸ’–πŸ’š

Thank you to BOTH for influencing me, my writing, and all the personal details shared. I welcome all the WILDNESS and all the MADNESS!!

P.S. A few days before this post was written, WWE’s SummerSlam happened on Aug. 11th. These two influenced “The Fair” dream which is blogged and in my book! Personally, I gotta love SummerSlam ’92! β€οΈπŸ’› Not to forget the date of Nov. 14th which was that iconic promo and also a significant part of the story in my book!!

Bittersweet Milestones

Do you celebrate milestones? Some I do but always remember them all, good or bad– small and big. Many Warrior fans recently remembered the good (or should I say great?!) milestone of 30 years ago at #Summerslam 1988 when the Ultimate Warrior pinned the Honky Tonk Man for the Intercontinental Title. I can’t believe I was almost 16 then which is how old Mattigan Warrior will be later this year.

The Ultimate Warrior character made his television debut 30 years ago last year and did I celebrate? No, but I sure remembered. Another “fond” memory of mine personally was remembering 25 years ago last year of a Saturday Night’s Main Event match with the Ultimate Maniacs vs. Money Inc. for the tag team belts. That story is in my book Spirit and Belief (in a way) and part of that day I will always keep to myself– sorry! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³πŸ˜¬ #Summerslam 1992 between the Ultimate Warrior and “Macho Man” Randy Savage was also 25 years ago last year and also part of my book in the “Dreams” chapter.

Let’s look ahead a little. Very soon I will have 100 posts on this blog and that number astounds me. THANK YOU always to everyone reading and sharing. It truly means the world to me. It also has reached over 30+ countries and 6 continents. (There’s those numbers again!) I am so glad to be impacting the world with my voice and message. Hopefully, I’ve inspired some of you to do the same.

Next year of 2019 brings so many milestones and several involve the Warrior family. Warrior and Dana would’ve been married 20 years, Warrior will be gone then for 5, Indiana I believe will be graduating high school, and Warrior would’ve been turning 60. *** I needed to pause but am back now.*** Will they be celebrating and remembering these bittersweet milestones? That is up to Dana and her girls but perhaps she will share some of this with us fans. Their privacy is to be respected but I will reflect on these as well with much emotion.

My husband and I will celebrate 20 years since we first met in 2019 and that number is so staggering. Sometimes, time does really feel that long as the date implies but sometimes it’s the blink of an eye. Warrior’s passing seems to be both with me especially considering all that has happened since then. A photograph, video, or even a book can transport you right back in that moment as if nothing ever changed.

Think of how you are now and how far you’ve come. I know this is true for me as I hope you feel the same. Nostalgia brings many feelings but we need to live in the now. Warrior even said to do this everyday.

Let’s talk #Wrestlemania! Can you believe 35 is next year? I still remember the first one when my brother and I were brimming with excitement. I don’t watch now but certainly know all the details. In 2 years, WM6 will be turning 30. That number sure is popular in today’s blog! That was also the year I graduated high school so for all you newbies- no, I wasn’t 6,7, 8, etc. when Warrior WON!!! Warrior’s return in 2014 was also (yes, we all know) WM30 weekend. Maybe I should’ve included that number with this title…πŸ€”πŸ˜‰

Milestones will forever be there in our lives waiting for us to celebrate, remember, or both. I could’ve included lots more but these main ones made the cut on my list. Oh, one more is that I have a high schooler this year. Still getting used to that and will be for a while am sure. 😯

Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, deaths, graduations, reunions, and any other events in your lives should always be reflected upon with whatever way suits you. No one should force you to plan or attend anything that isn’t in your heart but there are some exceptions. I remember Dana saying that she and her girls do remember the bad along with the good. It is all your life and should be acknowledged but is up to you to determine how.

Warrior even mentioned he and Dana’s 13th wedding anniversary in a video and that number isn’t a milestone at all. His family growing up celebrated very little but she did. Small things can be celebrated too and should not be taken for granted. To think I have a connection with that number and him is humbling to me. She expressed on her podcast #TotalWarriors how their family loves the number 13. It has been a part of my journey with Warrior also. My post “Lights on, Lights off” is a clue but the rest can be another story!

Keep the bittersweet milestones close to your heart and remember always if not celebrating. I know I will but those great ones are worth the most. (SS ’88, WM6, WM30 HOF)

P.S. I have exciting news to share as details are coming together but great things for my ‘lil book Spirit and Belief! Stay tuned!!
