Steve Wilton who managed Warrior Entertainment along with the Ultimate Warrior himself issued a statement yesterday regarding the passing of Warrior.
Wilton wrote that Warrior was the happiest he’s ever seen him since bringing the Ultimate Warrior character back to the WWE and was honored to have spent the weekend in New Orleans with Warrior, his wife Dana, and their two daughters Mattigan and Indiana.
The full statement reads as follows:
I am shocked and profoundly saddened by the death of my friend Warrior. He was a great man and leaves behind a legacy that will forever live in the hearts and minds of those who knew him personally, and his legions of Ultimate Warrior fans.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Warrior’s beautiful family, his wife Dana and their daughters Mattigan and Indiana. No words are strong enough to express my feeling for them at this time.
I was honored to be able to spend the weekend with Warrior and his family at WrestleMania 30 and have never seen a prouder father or more loving family.
Warrior was the happiest I had ever seen him to bring Ultimate Warrior back home to WWE and share that unmistakeable passion and excitement with each and every Ultimate Warrior fan around the world.
I have lost my best friend and my hero but take comfort in knowing his legacy will live forever. I will Always Believe.
