Ryback Responds To Dana Warrior Calling Him A Liar Over Ultimate Warrior Story


On episode 48 of Conversations with The Big Guy, former WWE superstar Ryback addressed a recent Twitter exchange with the widow of The Ultimate Warrior, Dana.

Ryback claimed on another episode of his podcast that there may have been plans for him to wrestle The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania 30. Dana emphatically denied that claim on Twitter and accused Ryback of lying to promote himself.

 Ryback vs Ultimate Warrior:

Ryback said: “I even mentioned that it could have been a big rib by WWE. It could have been them just f***ing with me, but that I was shown that, and then me and you [Pat Buck] discussed the possibilities of that match if it would have happened.”

“I’ve met Dana several times, and had always pleasant conversations with her and her two daughters, in which I will not share the encounter I had with her and her very kinds words towards me from her husband, which don’t need to be said here. That was my last meeting with her.”

– He doubled down that he was not lying about the proposed WrestleMania 30 match against The Ultimate Warrior.

“Nothing I said was a lie, and she made it a point to call me a liar and that I was trying to ‘cash in’ on somebody’s grave I guess,” Ryback said. “My whole thing is – and I believe the Manager chimed in on this; I have no reason to lie about this for any reason. When was Dana Warrior and the Manager of Warrior hanging out backstage? When was the last time they hung out backstage at a WWE event when I’m there every week being in the mix, so how would they know that had I seen a sheet or not?

Ryback claimed that WWE intentionally leaks out ideas of possible matches to gauge fan reaction. He said this could have been the case with Ryback vs. Ultimate Warrior for WrestleMania a few years.

Ryback then went back to the tweet sent out by Dana Warrior earlier this summer.

“One thing that really upset me about that in regards to the graveside and using his name in vain; it’s not making me any money to talk about that; I’m not using his image and likeness on my supplements to make me money, you know what I mean? So, I don’t understand where she is coming from where she is attacking me,” said Ryback. “I find it really odd that she took that route for her to attack me that way because she was always so kind to me before.”

Ryback believes Dana could have handled it differently, out of the public eye.

“There’s so many different ways to handle that than to do that publicly. Why couldn’t she have just private messaged me? If you think about it, I’m not lying, but who knows,” said Ryback. “I am truly baffled by that. It just sucks because people are running with it.”
