As far as The Ultimate Warrior's deal with WWE is concerned, here is how things went down:

* Triple H met with Warrior last July during a 2K Sports presser announcing that Warrior would be in the WWE 2K14 video game.

* Vince McMahon and Warrior met during SummerSlam weekend. The meeting was originally scheduled to last around 30 minutes but it wound up going several hours as they hashed out past issues and details of a possible return.

* Following both of those meetings, WWE began trying to work out a Hall of Fame deal with Warrior.

* The deal was completed in December.
