The Warrior Raw

World Wrestling Entertainment did a decent tribute to the Ultimate Warrior on Raw the other night.

The show opened with the roster standing together on the stage. A really nice video aired that showed bits of his career interspersed with clips of him and his family at the Hall of Fame ceremony from a few nights before he passed away.

Then, throughout the show, the company aired snippets of some of his most famous matches.

I still feel really bad for the family. However, something Wade Keller wrote in last week's issue of the Pro Wrestling Torch really makes a great point and I'm surprised with myself that I didn't think of this myself.

Despite how sad this entire thing is - Warrior's mother, wife and two daughters got to hear Warrior tell them how much he loved them just a few days before he died.

The children are going to look back and remember that night for the rest of their lives. I truly hope the few moments he dedicated to telling them that they were more important to him than anything he achieved in wrestling will last with them forever.
