As reported on earlier this week, Vince McMahon officially welcomed back The Ultimate Warrior to WWE with the following message on Twitter: I want to personally welcome Ultimate Warrior back to @WWE http://wwe.me/n6Ak8
Warrior then returned the favor with a lengthy response to McMahon on Twitter thanking him as well. For those who missed it, Warrior posted the following to Vince…
"@VinceMcMahon Vince, thank you for your personal welcome back to the WWE Universe. It is noted and appreciated. All the Warriors of Parts Unknown take pride in being one of the original galaxies of the Universe you created. Not one of my days has passed without a flashback to my time in the business and my relationship with you. After 17 years of battling one another, perhaps the stars have finally aligned and Destiny is prepared to tell one of Sports Entertainment's greatest stories: how two of the industry's most determined, colorful, intense and explosive personalities brought to life a persona that made such an inspiring impression that it still captures the hearts and minds of fans all over the world, even all these years later. I am proud Ultimate Warrior is an iconic, immortal spirit in the Universe you created. I know, Vince McMahon, you are proud, too. The inhabitants of your WWE Universe believe your personal welcome is an invitation of sorts. If so, consider this my RSVP with one condition. Wisdom takes a seat at the table with us when we meet, but we each also leave unburied a slight edge of the hatchet we've carried over the years. that other gutless and heartless God-fearing men urge us to lay to rest forever. Face it, neither one of us were ever any good at being bored or boring others. So coming prepared to kill one another makes for a interesting backup plan. Always Believe, Warrior" This has created a lot of discussion about consideration for Warrior being part of the Class of 2014 WWE Hall of Fame next year in New Orleans.
According to sources, WWE offered Warrior a Hall of Fame spot back in 2010 and he declined. Both sides have had multiple lawsuits against each other, mostly stemming from the "Self Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior" DVD release.
As of now he is only part of the promotion for the WWE 2K14 video game but that can obviously change. More as we get it.
