If there’s one thing that I cannot fault WWE games for, it’s the size of the roster that accompanies each new release. And hell, if a wrestler ain’t there, you can always make one in the creation suite. But one wrestler in particular has been missing. Like the weekly rumours considering his current state of living, the Ultimate Warrior has been considered dead in gaming. But he may just be about to stage a digital comeback.

In news that got me so excited that I tore off my cloths, slapped face paint on and started wearing tassels before I body-slammed Geoff, it looks like one of the greatest WWE performers of all time will be returning for WWE 2K14.

The current WWE franchise of games (I WROTE ABOUT ALL OF THEM!) has been knocking around for 13 years now, but if you wanted some Ultimate Warrior to come storming into the ring and start shaking the ring ropes like a British nanny with a new-born child, you were out of luck.

Outside of those games though, Warrior has made appearances in WWE All Stars and Legends of Wrestlemania. In WWE All Stars, Ultimate Warrior was the only character that was actually rendered in a correct ratio of flesh to muscle, compared to the beefed up physiques of the rest of the cast.*

The Smackdown Hotel forum via Operation Sports published an image from the August issue of Men in tights WWE Magazine that happened to have an ad in it in which The Ultimate Warrior (His actual, legally changed name) was going to be offered as a pre-order bonus.

Ultimate Warrior is not the first superstar from the older days of WWE to make a digital comeback. Before he died, Randy Macho Man Savage (OH YEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!) made a deal with the WWE to appear in their games, before his 2011 death.

But after several years of a relationship with the WWE that was rockier than Rock-endorsed rocky road ice cream, it looks he may have patched things up with the organisation.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now.So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

          • Unavengedavo

            Maybe she was a secret agent for the MSW?

            (Ministry of Silly Walks)

          • Wtf101

            Maybe it was a recruitment tactic:

            Join the Army… Kill Reapers.

            Sure, you may end up with your spine ripped out, but we got SEXY!

      • Ultimo_Cleric N7

        He was talking about body slamming Geoff……we dont know the context so it could be …um….”different” than what we first thought.

  • Hammersteyn

    To think Undertaker is still going

    • Jonah Cash

      He should really change his name to Biltong now….. Not that I would say it to his face and then have to explain biltong to him!!!

      • Hammersteyn

        Hehe good luck with that, he would know it as beef jerky.

  • ElNicko

    Who the Hell Legally changes their name to Warrior ??
    One too many steroids or steel chairs to the head me thinks

    • Hammersteyn

      Exactly

      • ElNicko

        and obviously he doesnt care about his kids getting that awesome “Warrior” as their surname – Indiana Marin “Indy” Warrior and Mattigan Twain Warrior

        • Skyblue

          Ultimate Warrior is the real life Randy “The Ram” Robinson.
          Used to love watching him back in the day, esp when he was moering Hulk Hogan.
          He thinks he really is Warrior btw, he’s messed that way and that’s what makes him insanely awesome.
          Like War Machine from MMA.

        • Hammersteyn

          Rather that than North West.

          • ElNicko

            A VERY Valid point you got there sir.

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Point. Set. Match.

          • ElNicko

            wait , hold on a sec , this is a Wrastling article , where did Tennis fit into it ?? (more like , he is down for the count , 3 , 2 ,1 and its over ladies and gents – we have a new champion)

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Are you comparing wrasslin mentality to “those” who name everything with a K?

          • ElNicko

            ‘those” people ?? ??
            Was more like commenting on the “Point Set Match” terms being used.
            This is Wrestling , not tennis.

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            FINE
            123 you are out!
            Happy?

          • ElNicko

            but still , who are ‘Those’ people ?? “those” who name everything with a K?

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            You don’t know?

            I was referring to “North West” and where the poor kid spawned from

          • ElNicko

            aaaahhhhh , it all makes sense now……its a monday , please forgive me if my hamster turns the wheel Very slowly

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            XDXD ROFL @ hamster

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Agreeeeed

          • Unavengedavo

            What about Blanket?

          • Hammersteyn

            Whaha

    • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

      It’s not that crazy actually. It was all done so that Warrior could retain the trademark of the character, and keep the WWE away from it.

      • ElNicko

        was reading about the ugly feud he had with WWE/WWF over that trademark.
        but still , Warrior as a surname ??

        • The Rich

          He’s proud of it, let me tell you that. And he still rants as though he just finished losing a title match.

    • The Rich

      You should go check out his blog/website. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

      • ElNicko

        will do…..its been a quiet Monday.

  • Trevor Davies

    Don’t you dare mock our man-soapies!

    • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

      I’m mocking the obsession of a certain Batman wannabe :P

      • Trevor Davies

        Alright then. Carry on good sir.

  • TiMsTeR1033

    Ultimate Warrior was a legend, and he seriously kicked ass!
