Ultimate Warrior Returns

SLAM! Wrestling has an article on Ultimate Warrior’s autograph signing on Sunday where he dressed up in his traditional Ultimate Warrior gear. Like we said before, the signing took place at the Marriott hotel in Uniondale, NY, right next to the venue of WWE’s Great American Bash pay-per-view held later that same day.

Bruno Lauer, probably best known as former WWF manager Harvey Wippleman, now working as a road agent, arrived and hung up a cease and desist letter from World Wrestling Entertainment, so even the fans could read it. The WWE felt that The Ultimate Warrior is just using the attention and good name of World Wrestling Entertainment to attract fans to his signing.

The WWE also noted the belt The Ultimate Warrior was advertised to pose with in pictures with fans. The WWE believes that belt is their “intellectual property” and the ultimate Warrior should not be allowed to pose or even market himself posing with it. The Ultimate Warrior posed with a WWF belt, which appears to be the original belt he wore inside the ring in the 1990′s because it’s gold and has yellow leather. Of course, WWE doesn’t have any more rights to the terms “WWF” anymore, not to mention that the belt is his personal property, so he should be free to do whatever he wants with it.

And for anyone who went, The Ultimate Warrior was kind enough to ignore WWE’s cease and desist letter and continued to sign autographs for everyone who came. “The event seemed to have run pretty well as far as a fan’s point of few is concerned. This event will be remembered for a long time by all of the Warrior fans who attended,” the article stated.
