Warrior’s Legal Team Forbid Selling Unauthorized Memorabilia


Lawyers for the late Ultimate Warrior have launched their letter-campaign addressed to a string of merchandisers to forbid them from selling tribute memorabilia without authorization.

The 54-year old wrestler collapsed and died in Arizona. He had suffered a severe heart attack on April 8th, only days after he was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Inc (WWE) Hall of Fame.

Online retailers took the chance to flood the Internet with T-shirts and other clothing items featuring the late star’s name, logo and pictures. His attorneys were not satisfied with their actions, so they are now threatening more than 100 sellers with legal actions.

According to TMZ.com, Ultimate Creations Company is trying to prevent the sellers from cashing in on the tragedy.

If the sellers fail to pull the items from retail online stores, they could face lawsuits for trademark infringement.

During his final appearance on RAW, Warrior gave a speech as his Ultimate Warrior character. He said:

“No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.”

“You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back I see many potential legends. Some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of The Ultimate Warrior will run forever!”
