On a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho spoke with the Ultimate Warrior's widow, Dana Warrior. Among other things, Mrs. Warrior talked about her husband meeting Daniel Bryan and Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 30 as well as Warrior's relationships with 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, Owen Hart, and Andre the Giant.
According to Mrs. Warrior, meeting the likes of Daniel Bryan and Stardust at WrestleMania 30 meant the world to her husband. Bryan even took the time to introduce himself to Warrior right before his main event match to tell Warrior that he was a big fan of his growing up.
"He had so much respect for these guys that are in there right now. I mean, so much respect, and these are guys that you were talking about, that watched him and loved him."
Mrs. Warrior told Jericho that Savage was her husband's favorite person to work with.
"I think he loved working with Randy [Savage]. I think Randy was his heart. I mean, to be honest with you, I think about those two up in heaven together. It makes me smile. He really did just adore Randy and when Randy died that really was just a sad day."
Mrs. Warrior indicated that another death that stands out for her was the passing of Owen Hart, as Warrior and Owen Hart were very close.
"I remember him sitting at our counter when Owen passed and I remember we had this red tile counter and I can remember his elbows, just him being so big and his big old head in his hands and his big shoulders shaking. He was so sad to lose Owen".
Mrs. Warrior stated that Andre the Giant was another one of Warrior's favorite people from the professional wrestling business.
"He loved Andre too. When he'd talk about Andre, he'd laugh so uproariously," she continued, "he would talk about what an incredible man Andre was and what a generous person to work with he was".
Apparently, Warrior would bring Andre the Giant a bottle of his favorite type of liquor after every match they worked together to thank him for being so generous.
"Somebody that amazing and legendary to let a younger guy beat him in 30 seconds is a pretty good guy to work with and that did not escape him."
In addition to these topics, Mrs. Warrior discussed her husband's reconciliation with WWE, the Warrior Award, and much more. To listen to the entire podcast, click here.
