Rob Van Dam posted a blog on his website last Friday updating up on the condition of his wife Sonya, who is suffering from colon cancer, his positive wrestling experience in Spain a few weeks ago, discuss "the power of the mind" with Ultimate Warrior and Chris Nowinski, and what happened during his recent encounter with Warrior. Regarding Warrior, RVD wrote:
"So, back to Warrior. You may have heard some rumors about me training him recently. Here's the scoop. He called with that request, and I was honored to get the call. He hadn't been in the ring for ten years or so and he said he would be honored if I had the time to help him out. Because of our situation with Sonya's health, I was only able to get in the ring with Warrior one day. We didn't do a lot- mostly running the ropes, locking up and talking about what made Warrior so exciting to watch back in the day. I was ready for my outrageous Warrior moment. I had cameras standing by ready to capture the craziness that everyone has come to expect but instead, I spent the day with a hell of a cool guy that I shared a lot with. He showed me nothing but respect and appreciation, and at the end of the day I was amazed by how much we had in common. You may have seen the video I recorded of me imitating the Warrior on you tube.. I knew that people would see right away that he has a sense of humor, which is probably way different than your previous opinion. I have had nothing but good things to say about Warrior from my experiences with him and if I told you something bad, I'd be lying-which I don't do. I remember watching that WWE video on him just like you did, and it just made me remember how exciting and intense he was. I listened to the WWE'ers claiming that Warrior was just detached from reality and couldn't do a promo to save his life and I just thought " How could that be true? I used to buy tickets to go see this guy so I know what he did worked!" It's cool how things come around full circle and I'm glad we connected on a professional and even more so, a personal level."
