It was reported last week that the wife of the late Ultimate Warrior, Dana Warrior, had been signed to the WWE as a writer. This came shortly after it was announced that Bruce Prichard had also been re-hired by WWE to have him work with the creative team.
Dana, who also serves as an ambassador for WWE, took to her blog and said ”I’ve been a writer from earliest memory. I would sit in my apple green play room, folding paper, creating makeshift books in which to pour my thoughts. Word upon word, layered with illustrations, created unending volumes all my OWN.”
She would go on to add ”Some exciting opportunities are before me now. They make me laugh and cry with excitement… stand to full height with purpose. Will there be those who try to shake my confidence, sure? Will there be unexpected naysayers questioning my chops, damn straight there will be! I’ll not permit another’s lack of support fill me with weakness or doubt. My track record of taking things on and slaying them to pretty pink ribbon is pretty gold glitter standard.”
Warrior was somewhat vague about her role within WWE, but Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that ”the basic gist of Dana Warrior is she was looking for a job — she asked Vince McMahon for a job and Vince goes, ‘What would you like, a full-time position? What would you like to do?’ She said she’d like to work in creative. She said she could offer a female point of view — there are other women on the writing team.”
According to Ringside News, although Warrior is under contract with the company she isn’t an official part of the creative team yet. She was backstage at Raw and Smackdown Monday and Tuesday respectively last week, as well as Raw last night shadowing the creative team. It is thought that she is being coached for the role with the intention of hiring her as a member of the full-time creative staff soon. Ringside News said ”basically, it was said that she is closer to being an intern without having that title”.
