WWE News: Ultimate Warrior Book To Be Released At Big Event, August 22
WWE has scheduled a release party for August 22, during SummerSlam weekend, for their new book on the life of the late Ultimate Warrior.
The event will be held at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. Dana Warrior, widow of Ultimate Warrior, will be present at the event. The Ultimate Warrior statue that WWE unveiled earlier this year will be on display along with other memorabilia; there will be a face-painting station, as well as an autograph signing with Dana Warrior.
WWE has released the following statement on the contents of the new Ultimate Warrior book:
“With signature moves like the Warrior Splash, epic battles against Hulk Hogan, Sgt. Slaughter, Macho Man Randy Savage, and The Undertaker, and impassioned speeches that struck fear into his opponents and inspired warriors across the nation, the late Ultimate Warrior became one of the most revered figures in WWE history. Here, for the first time, the complete legend of The Ultimate Warrior is told in full, from his humble beginnings as a self-proclaimed “small, insecure kid who wasn’t into any sports” to his rise to WWE fame as the most powerful force in the universe.”
“Through both action and candid photographs, personal ephemera, including original Warrior art and detailed journal entries, insider stories and exclusive interviews with WWE legends, and intimate accounts from the Warrior family, this unique biography brings the legacy of The Ultimate Warrior to life like never before.”
“Relive the Warrior’s most intense matches and rivalries, and get to know the man behind the face paint in this one-of-a-kind volume. Filled with intense action and little-known details, Ultimate Warrior: A Life Lived Forever is a celebration of the Superstar who left an inimitable mark on WWE and redefined sports entertainment for generations.”
The Ultimate Warrior tragically passed away on April 8, 2014. Before his death he had spent the weekend with WWE during WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans. Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 5, and appeared at WrestleMania XXX on April 6. Warrior then made his last public appearance for WWE during Monday Night RAW on April 7.
This past March during WrestleMania 31 weekend, WWE gave out their inaugural Warrior Award, an honor to be handed out every year during the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. According to WWE, the Warrior Award will be given “to someone who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of WWE Hall of Famer, The Ultimate Warrior.”
