β€œI Think I Can…” πŸ€”πŸš‚

***Before I begin, this week marks 3.5 years since this blog began… Thank you all so very much for the support as I always support you as well. πŸ€—

That little blue engine storybook is quite the tale isn’t it? Do you warriors know this story? I actually was finding myself in a little bit of a lull with my next post and then found what I needed to find. Not on purpose once again but always meant to be. A book bringing us together as I am always amazed.

While searching for a photo to use a few weeks back with Warrior’s Machete, down the youtube rabbit hole I seemed to go. Never intentionally but I do believe these connections matter. You may not but in my life, they do. I came across this video titled: “The Final Days of the Ultimate Warrior.” Ugh.., I promised myself not to watch anymore of these bios as most are extremely negative. I stared at it for a few minutes after deciding to watch. Boy, am I glad I did.

*** First off, another milestone this week on blog day. Warrior has been in spirit form now for 6 years today. I don’t normally do stats but wanted to for this one. It’s been 2, 191.45 days. Probably minus 1 for me. WOW. That’s a pretty big number. He was born and passed on a Tuesday. I was also born on a Tuesday. πŸ˜‰

That day was named after the Nordic god Tyr who was also their god of war. Kinda fitting.,, I like the old children’s poem about Days of the Week. Tuesday’s child is full of grace. We all need grace although humbling at times. The number 6 again and again. I know spirit life is treating you well Warrior as I always believe in grace… And stats… And dates… And no coincidences…

Now, back to the train story. So, to summarize for anyone not wanting to watch the video, here’s a little synopsis. During Warrior’s HOF WM30 weekend, he gave Vince McMahon a copy of the original “Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper. Vince was extremely puzzled and didn’t understand. Warrior reminds him how he told about it being his favorite book as a child and thought of the Ultimate Warrior as the engine that could. Vince also thought of the WWE as being the engine that could… make a name for themselves in sports entertainment. He thought they both could and did. Vince was so touched by Warrior’s gift and remembered the man behind the paint with how he listened to succeed.

This part in the bio is at the 11:00 minute mark. 11 is another great spiritual number warriors, just sayin’…. The whole time thru my OMG tears, I knew I had this book. It’s in my attic with the kids memories. I truly thought my Mom had bought it after our son was born but no. I bought it as the memory came rushing back. I found that book and held it in my hands as the whole thing came together.

Us preschool teachers would receive gift cards from the kids and many to Barnes and Noble bookstore. A co-worker of mine used to tease me about never purchasing an adult book and just adding to our kids library. I just loved children’s books and couldn’t resist a classic like “The Little Engine That Could.” My version isn’t exactly the same with trains refusing to help but the basic story is. The tears weren’t sad but just overwhelming ones knowing that story can have such an impact.

It’s all in our attitude warriors. If we think we can, we will. If we don’t, we won’t. I’ve said that before so I hope you take it to heart like Warrior and Vince did. My kids both loved that story and would mouth “I think I can…” often when trying to accomplish something. Maybe as teens, they need that reminder again. You too could possibly own this book or even remember it being read to you as a child. Perhaps it isn’t a big deal with your memories and that’s fine. All these great connectors are part of my journey so trust me on this…

The other parts of the bio are all accurate with happy and sad moments. I love the backstage still shots us fans rarely see. This channel has a few other bios on the Ultimate Warrior character so feel free to check it out. Now, I will never really feel the same about this wonderful train story written 25 years before I was born ( on a Tuesday.)

Sure, I could’ve picked out any book that day in the store but chose that little blue engine. Memories for Vince, Warrior, me, my preschool kids, and then my own. Years apart and yet all together on one track. Vince had called the Ultimate Warrior “a locomotive” ( blogged and in my book Spirit and Belief) but the little engine that could had a huge task.

~~~ Like Warrior signs to Vince in the book: “Thanks for the opportunity to go from I think I can to I Know I can.”

~~~ I didn’t think I could do this at first but I thank Warrior for making ME know I can… Here’s to 6 years of always believing — here’s to GRACE and stories never forgotten. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

30 Years of Time…πŸ•°

How about this date warriors? April 1st is a Wednesday this year which also means Happy 30th Anniversary to Wrestlemania VI on blog day! When I look back, that was more than half my lifetime ago. This post isn’t about “The Ultimate Challenge” but more about that number of 30. Here are some interesting facts about these years of time connecting to me, Warrior, and possibly all of you old enough to relate…

First, Warrior (Jim Hellwig) won Mr. Georgia back in 1984. That Junior Level Bodybuilding Competition was held in New Orleans. Flash forward 30 years later to 2014 in New Orleans AGAIN for his WWE HOF induction during WMXXX weekend. Wow… 30 connects once more. This man had so many dates in alignment, I can’t even keep up sometimes. But, yes I guess I can… Second, let’s look at some dates of mine. I BREATHE this one out a little more. Back in April of 1990, I was the same age as Mattigan Warrior is now (Warrior’s younger daughter). Technically, not in the same grade and minus a few months because of our birthdays but both 17(going on 18.) Her Daddy won that title when I was her age and it is very surreal to me. Am sure some of you are my age but for me, it’s a little more. 😊

That also means she and I are 30 years apart as I believe her mother Dana and I are the same age as well. So synchronistic on this journey. I don’t go looking for comparisons really warriors. My stories just seem to come and then line up in ways I never thought about– until now. I do have many connections with numbers and dates as numerology does play a significant role in my life. Does it for you too?

In another post of last year, I mentioned time with references to my kids. For those without kids, it can be other frames of time you reflect on. I’ve said how a memory can come back in a second and then sometimes we may have to recall a little more. Is it yesterday in your mind or does time really seem to be that long? However it is for you, make it count which I’ve also said many times. We can’t make time stop but it can slow down some. Just look at our global world right now. Maybe we do need that downtime despite setbacks temporarily.

Let’s not constantly run to that ring of life always anticipating the next and next. Sometimes, professionally we need to do that like WWE performers but get that relaxed time too. I realize we all have life choices, careers, families, and such but if your time doesn’t slow just a little, you’ll miss out on those moments that matter most. I know some who will say it won’t make a difference or we’ll rest when we retire but it doesn’t have to be like that. Just enjoy the present since those with kids understand how fast they do indeed grow up.

I’m not saying don’t socialize ever ( well, this time is different right now…) but become more mindful with your actions. Don’t be so rushed that your memories become a blur. You’ll get so burned out that important milestones or even everyday life will be hard to remember. Your thoughts will be centered among the next best thing around the corner. Take that downtime you need everyday and just be. That’s it. Of course not all day but some time for you enjoying the moment and memories it will bring.

Can you remember what your life was like 30 years ago warriors? I am soo jealous of anyone present in that Toronto Skydome!! Hopefully, most who are reading are older than that number to remember but if not, try just 10 years ago. How old were you and are you doing things you set out to do? NEVER could I have predicted this future for myself back at the age of 17. I know 30 is a big chunk of time for some but truly try with any number that has a special meaning to you. What you remember most is what counts, even if it’s a bad experience. It’s yours and hopefully you’re stronger for it. You may not have numbers and dates like me and Warrior but yours play such a big part in this life, live them well.

Sure, we can reflect easier with movies, books, videos, and photographs but it’s your heart that brings those memories to the surface. When I look back fondly on WMVI, it isn’t always the DVD or pictures I gravitate toward. It’s my mind and heart together as I hope that never ends. Last year brought many milestones and now this year brings others. It does go on. Next year, WMVII will be 30 and that will bring another. Look at what needed to happen for WM36 this year! Another milestone indeed although unexpected.

So, spend that time needed reflecting warriors and slow down sometimes. We do need to. I imagine Warrior is too in some ways as a spirit although remember– ENERGY never goes away! Believe me on this. πŸ˜‰πŸ’™ All Wrestlemania’s will have their own significant milestone memories with time just like your own lives with moments lived. Warrior says a similar statement during his Aug. 1998 WCW Nitro speech to “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan.

Would I want to be 17 again? Nah, too emotional plus there’s a movie title for that! ~~ Happy 30th Anniversary to WMVI and all the performers. Thanks for the memories of time… The Ultimate Challenge of WMVI becoming 30 this year like Warrior as a spirit now for almost 6… 30 and 6 once again…… πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

Who’s Your #GOAT? πŸ˜¬πŸ€”

I’m not talking about a real goat here so please stay with me! 🐐 So, warriors what does an actual goat have to do with this week’s post? I thought about that for a bit and realized how hilarious it would be to use a REAL goat instead of my original idea. Am sure you’ve all heard this expression by now of #GOAT. If you haven’t, it stands for the“Greatest of All Time.” Some athletes have even uttered (or should I say uddered!) πŸ˜‰it about themselves or use with their twitter handle. My original idea involving pro-wrestlers was to list so many names- mostly from my generation on a huge piece of paper. I still will make that list in this post but an actual pic of a goat made me laugh! It’s great to have humor…

The Greatest of All Time is such a huge concept to even consider. We only seem to mention this with sports for some reasons. If it does apply to other interests, let me know! Do we say we’re the greatest parent of all time? No, because none of us parents are. How about other professions like teaching? I never said that about myself and never will. Does anyone say they’re the greatest driver of all time? Cook? Dancer? How about writer? ( wink, wink!) ~~ Sub any words of your choice. Maybe some use that expression but most don’t. Why is it just for athletes? Even movie stars or other famous people don’t refer to #GOAT.

After the horrific helicopter crash ending the life of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and several othersπŸ’”, my son had a conversation with me and his Dad. He was deeply affected by this tragedy. Of course, Kobe and his very exceptional life achievements were all over the news. My son asked if Kobe would be considered a #GOAT. So interesting to answer considering his remarkable career. My answer to him was that I believe it to be generational. I know this is how it comes across with other sports and not just basketball. πŸ€

There is so much to factor in with the equation of being a #GOAT. Sure, some use it as an ego boost and in many ways, that does help. Some use it too much in an unhealthy way where humility is forgotten. Kobe Bryant had tremendous respect for others in his sport before him that set such precedents. For his generation, yes he would be a #GOAT but overall, no. I bet he’d agree. You might not and that’s fine. I mean absolutely no disrespect to him at all.

Just because someone is your favorite athlete, would that make them a #GOAT? Nope, that’s just your opinion and you can have one. For women, it is a little different considering they haven’t participated in professional sports as long as men so the generation gap will be closer together. It’s similar to someone getting inducted into a Hall of Fame. Popularity isn’t the only factor. It’s quite an arduous process. Maybe some of you think I’d be extremely biased and choose the Ultimate Warrior as a #GOAT. I would not. There are those that will agree but there are those that won’t. Lots factor in. Warrior didn’t even truly want a title belt much so being a #GOAT would not be part of his mindset. Realistically, it shouldn’t even be a hashtag or part of social media at all. It certainly does spark conversations though that never seem to end.

Brother Love of WWE fame is quoted as saying at the time of the steel cage match between “Macho King” Randy Savage and the Ultimate Warrior that the Macho King is “the Greatest World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion of all time past, present, and future.” That was in 1991. I know Randy and Warrior were close but is Randy a #GOAT? BTW– that steel cage match is mentioned in my book Spirit and Belief as “Me Next!”

Hulk Hogan started a whole new generation of entertainment with his All-American look which skyrocketed to mainstream culture. Is he a #GOAT? Well, Mean Gene Okerlund stated that before Hulk’s WMVI interview. Some could say definitely yes but again generations play a significant role. One cannot even compare yesteryear’s “technical” wrestlers to today’s “entertaining” performers. The #GOAT’s will always be there and we all have a say.

Well, here’s my list I mentioned from the beginning so keep in mind many others. Again, my generation as you will all have yours…

*** Possible #GOAT’s? ( am not listing Tag Teams or women)

* Hulk Hogan, *”Macho Man” Randy Savage, πŸ’™Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant, Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Honky Tonk Man, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, *Undertaker, *Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Sting, Shawn Michaels, Ravishing” Rick Rude, “The British BulldogDavey Boy Smith ( HOF this year!) “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, and John Cena.

*** I tried to list a few more than just the 80’s! You can add others as I trimmed this list! ~~Notice how I * the Undertaker for those who have heard my stories! U.W. gets a πŸ’™not an *. Also, you can’t compare Hulk’s generation to that of John Cena’s.

P.S. Whoever your #GOAT is, I’m kinda fond of the REAL goat up above. They’ve always been my favorite on a farm or petting zoo! They’re so animated and entertainers “of All Time!”

~~~ Personally, Warrior will always be my #GOAT for many reasons. πŸ’™πŸ˜‰πŸ™πŸ»

Many Meaningful Masks

We do wear lots of masks throughout our lives warriors as some may have read on this blog before. This post isn’t quite as deep as getting to the real us but does involve several “mask” stories of my OWN that became very meaningful. A few are slightly amusing but then a few are well…., not so much. I do believe I’ve mentioned painting the Ultimate Warrior’s mask on my face was never something I’d do. Dana has had her face marked with her own brand of warrior woman paint but I only dabbled in small symbols on my cheeks. After all, he did that for a brief time so for me that was enough.

When my youngest sister was still quite little, I loved coloring and drawing with her. We had a few chalkboards to use for many creations. Guess what I showed her? Yep, the Ultimate Warrior mask. Why did that pop in my head? I wasn’t sure she’d fully understand my intensity back then so it was just called a “cat mask.” O.K., I know it doesn’t really look like a cat face but she bought it and became my muse of choice. She actually does still remember those times! Glad my silliness was so memorable and unforgettable to her. Just like Warrior was and still is to me.

Another funny memory was painting Easter eggs. Being a teenage girl meant most were done with that tradition but again with having a sibling ten years younger made me still participate. I remember painting an egg purple and then adding his mask in the middle with yellow. Those are Easter colors for real! So very proud of how it turned out. I realize this sounds obsessive as perhaps even true fans out there didn’t do this. We all have weird stuff as teens and I gotta say that was mild compared to other things kids my age were doing. 😬Am sure you have your own crazy times too! This was sweet to me and I’ve shared a lot personally so there warriors– you get another interesting tidbit from my past.

These last few are a little bittersweet. When I heard about Warrior’s HOF induction, the months just seemed to fly by as that Spring came fast. Some will know how warm it was that April here in Ohio which is discussed in my book Spirit and Belief. My daughter was still into chalk drawing like her aunt many years ago. I drew the Ultimate Warrior mask on our driveway in many different colors so happy for his upcoming weekend. They were great as I hadn’t even tried drawing that mask in years. My girl never questioned the validity as it’s just a symbol. Little did she know how much it meant to her Mama. *** PAUSE*** A few days later, Warrior passed. πŸ’”

I still could see those colorful masks in one spot of our driveway out my window. It made me so sad, shocked, and angry. With no rain coming, they were erased by me without a trace remaining. It was too much then even with no tears but now, I’d leave them for different reasons. Even though the chalk was erased from that pavement, I could never erase him from my life no matter how hard I tried almost six years ago.

This time also coincided with my daughter having a Dance Party at her school along with face painting. She had these beautiful butterflies on her cheeks and loved them. A few days after Warrior’s passing and I see my girl’s face painted. Of course this isn’t his mask like the other stories but my emotions still fought it.

My Dad’s big 70th birthday party was the next night and with sleep, her butterflies faded a little. She asked me to paint them back on so she could show off her face to everyone. I obliged but told her Mama would do the best I could and to not get mad. My hands were shaking as I picked up that first brush and chose her color. Why? Come on Kathy– this isn’t his mask, what’s wrong with you? Well, that was how much of my grief got displayed. I just told her I was nervous since that wasn’t something she rarely asked of me. Warrior’s mask- No. Face paint-yes. It still mattered a lot. Never could I even put on the mask from the book “A Life Lived Forever.” I had held it up to my face but the strap broke. I wasn’t meant to wear it…

Warrior created his many painted masks for the Ultimate Warrior character which I never ever wanted to replicate. It wasn’t for me but I guess other meaningful mask stories came to be. To even think I had mask stories surprised me until back from my memory bank they were there again. Just like Warrior.

If any of you have ever painted the U.W. mask on yourself or anyone else, bravo! Your masks are meaningful to you just like mine were to me. Warrior painted different masks and each became a story with ultimate meanings. No chalk could ever be erased from my memory. He was there with or without his mask and still will forever be. πŸ’–πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ™πŸ»

P.S. We recently finally saw the movie “Fighting with my Family” which depicts the true story of Paige in the WWE. I really needed a chalkboard to slide my nails down since it shows WMXXX and Monday Night RAW of April 7, 2014… 😳 The U.W. wrestling buddy doll is also in this movie so sorry for the spoiler alert!! My husband even liked it. Another chalkboard moment.

Persistence is the Key πŸ”

Persistence is quite the word, isn’t it warriors? Perseverance is another similar term and I ask the gods up above for that everyday (: This is the key to making me stay true to who and what I am. I’m gonna share two guys that became pretty persistent over time. Yes, they both involve Warrior but not in the way you might be thinking…

Steve Wilton (Warrior’s former manager) elaborates more about Warrior’s disassociation with Vince McMahon and WWE in the book “A Life Lived Forever.” This also connects to my brother and me. Of course I will explain without getting into too much detail about a certain other DVD (which I said I’d never mention) but Warrior’s hurt and sadness about the company remained. He never wanted to go back or hear news about WWE ever again. It was never his intention or desire to associate with Vince and company anymore. Period. Well, Steve had a way of being persistent when it mattered most.

He’d wear a shirt Warrior would notice, swear at, and laugh. One time Steve actually convinced Warrior to watch a steel cage match involving Vince and Triple H as a tag team. Warrior was intrigued and gave many compliments in Mr. McMahon’s favor. It seemed better to talk WWE again until Triple H (Paul) made his move to get the Ultimate Warrior in the Hall of Fame.

For years, I had also disassociated with Vince and WWE. I stopped watching after Warrior left and never really watched again. That was it for me and I didn’t care. If fact, I was gleefully giggling when I heard Vince had finally got “caught” in a way with some unmentionable issues and lost millions on the XFL deal back then. Good, I thought. It’s about time…

Enter my brother who is still that fan today for trying to remind me many years ago all about Mr. McMahon’s good qualities and his brand of genius. I didn’t care at all. If he shared a performer of our era getting inducted, I’d take notice. Other than that, nope not interested. He’d even try so hard to get my funny bone going again with Facebook posts but I wouldn’t budge. For Warrior~~ yes. πŸ‘For anyone else~~ no. πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

Two guys trying really hard to get each of us~~ Warrior and me to like WWE again. What a parallel universe indeed. If anyone has read my blog over time, you know I still don’t watch but I do know enough. If fact, my sister has been friends for a long time with one of the guys who is now part of the current RAW tag team Champs~ The Viking Raiders!! I can say I knew him back then… πŸ˜‰ Also, I have mentioned Vince before and now I understand so much more without such negativity. Once again though, emotions come to the surface and can remain for years. It was like that for Warrior and myself. We felt the same disappointment, anger, sadness, and all in betweens until persistence kept knocking at our beat up doors.

Here’s a metaphor for you to consider. Imagine an old attic style trunk all locked up accumulating cobwebs. You know it’s there but what’s inside doesn’t interest you like it once did. You’ll always have its contents but isn’t part of your life anymore. Then, something changes. You push those cobwebs off, get the key and unlock it again. What’s inside? That’s your stuff and memories. Can you relate warriors? That was me and my memories of WWE, Vince, and of course Warrior. I can still put those old memories back in but now that trunk is sparkly clean and being cleared out for new ones. The old mixing with the new. All one in the same and never forgotten.

You can have persistence with anything in your life that truly matters. Relationships with others, your career, a personal fitness goal, financial success, or any topic of interest. Try to unlock whatever is blocking you to better things. Sometimes, we need to back off but your persistence just might make someone else try for theirs. If I hadn’t been persistent, this blog and my book Spirit and Belief wouldn’t have become a reality. If Steve hadn’t been persistent, perhaps Warrior wouldn’t have shown interest in WWE again or agreed to talks with Triple H. Even if my brother hadn’t been persistent with me, I might’ve never known some important details that matter so much to me now. I wasn’t all over some social media of wrestling then.

So, warriors find your own attic trunk and become persistent to preserving what’s inside. It just may be the key you need to making your dreams come true.

P.S. Talk about persistence with NUMBERS!!

( ok WWE Trivia buffs…)

2020= 30 years since WMVI( this year!!)

2020= 6 years since Warrior’s passing( this year) AND his last WM was XXX.

*** Those numbers keep coming!

Just Imagine warriors…

This post is a day early warriors as I have much going on tomorrow. Also, this blog will be the last one of 2019 as I am taking a few weeks off for the Holiday Season. Not to worry though. I’ll be back in 2020 (wow!) with a funny family one to start the New Year! Feel free to archive posts if you’re missing me too much!! πŸ˜‰

So, just imagine warriors. What could that mean? Well, for this topic it’s kinda like the question you got asked as a kid. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” That means your job. We all had those answers, didn’t we? Maybe you didn’t know or maybe you still don’t consider yourself a grown up? Whatever the case, let’s use that imagination I’m sure you all still have.

Warrior says in that video above how the Ultimate Warrior will keep running and that’s how we all need to be. Not literally but just to keep going, dreaming, imagining, and then achieving. Whatever that is for you. I’ll link the WWE video at the end but most fans know his story. He had many professional aspirations and being a pro- wrestler wasn’t even one of them. Life sends detours for sure and we can decide what road to take.

If for just one day, you could take a professional detour, what would that be like for you? Imagine yourself out of your current job or situation and into another. I’ll be an example here. Well, let’s see… I did always want to be a wife and mom (no paycheck!) but becoming a preschool teacher was my profession for many years. Once I decided on early childhood, that was it for me. Never ever ever did I imagine becoming a writer of two international blogs, publishing a book Spirit and Belief, having a website, making YouTube videos, and all this! UM- no way! Some things aren’t money related but still shows the detours. Dana is now on the creative writing team of WWE. Am sure she never imagined that detour in her life either. Culture may decide also but it’s all there for you.

Now, if I could change something– hmm… What would I imagine? I guess I would probably be a singer! I’m not really sure how that would get played out but I have imagined it. My kids still tease me about music and singing but it doesn’t bother me. Will I ever do that professionally? No. That’s o.k. though. Good thing I have always loved music as I get plenty of Warrior signs that way!

Now, it’s your turn. You can’t just put yourself on a tropical island here….(ah, how nice though…) 🌴Again, this is about money but not everything is. I mean another career. Maybe you love houses and dream of selling real estate? Maybe you love T.V. and imagine becoming an actor? Whatever it is, it’s yours to imagine. Be that kid again that we all seem to forget about.

I thought about changing this topic to include personal ideas but didn’t want anyone regretting relationships with significant others or possibly having kids! Some things we may regret but know they are life lessons getting you to where you are now. There are shared traits of course between us all. Don’t all of us want to be financially secure? To be happy? Healthy? Of course we do and we all should.

Nowadays, people will have multiple jobs over the course of their professional life. Quite possibly gone are the days of securing that elusive job with your college degree and sustaining it for 40+ years until retirement. Some may still do this but is becoming a rarity anymore with all of society’s changes. Who knows how it’ll be for my kids? Time will tell, they’ll have detours but we must never stop imagining.

I’m not saying “daydreaming” to the point of depression. No pity at all with the “wonder what my life would’ve been like?… ” scenario. Nope! Just fun here. Look at all Warrior did with his imagination without some ideas initially at all. You can be that way too. I have and our brains need that sometimes. Just remember to stay in the present moment since that’s what we have. To think about the past or future is fine but not for too long as I’ve said before.

As I sign off for a bit, enjoy your time imagining warriors. Even if just for a day. Be that kid with all the dreams however they are! πŸ§šπŸ’«πŸ˜΄

P.S. Keep running warriors and I will too! Send 2019 out with some FUN (:

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!!
