Ryback vs Warrior?
Dana Warrior, the widow of WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior, responded to Ryback’s claim regarding her husband. In the 46th episode of “Conversation with The Big Guy” podcast, Ryback alleged a WrestleMania 30 match was planned between him and The Ultimate Warrior. Ryback claimed WWE talent relations executive Mark Carrano showed him the early plans for WrestleMania, and it included Warrior vs. Ryback.
The Big Guy said he was excited for the match “because I figured it was his one last moment in WWE.” Although he was “cool” with the match idea, Ryback still didn’t think he was the right man for the match since he was unaware of Warrior’s in-ring shape. Despite such concerns, Ryback said he would have continued with the match since “I did everything that they asked of me there.”
On early Friday afternoon, Dana Warrior went on Twitter to respond to Ryback’s WrestleMania allegation. She rebuked his claim and added she was saddened when people lie to promote themselves.
Not true. It always saddens me when people tell untruths on a man's grave to promote their lives. Do your OWN work. Dana https://t.co/B4gFSmKljq
