Ultimate Warrior: Stories on merchandise request inaccurate

Several wrestling news websites reported on Tuesday that Ultimate Warrior was asking for 30 percent of the proceeds from sales of Warrior merchandise at the threat of legal action. A representative of Warrior Entertainment is refuting the reports, saying that the company is not asking for royalties from merchandise sales, but is instead focused on fake Warrior items.

Statement from Warrior Entertainment:

“The story regarding Ultimate Warrior merchandise that has been reported on wrestling news sites today is inaccurate.

“Warrior Entertainment have at no point demanded royalties which would allow sellers to continue producing unlicensed goods.

“Without exception, all counterfeit merchandise bearing Ultimate Warrior intellectual property will be removed without warning from all auctions sites, websites or similar.”

The Ultimate Warrior himself posted a message on the issue to a forum on WrestlingInc.com:

“Recent stories about Warrior attempting to swindle 30% royalties from eBayers auctioning Ultimate Warrior items are ridiculously inaccurate. The actual royalty demand is 110%, 100% of money made from the sale plus a 10% service fee for handling the hassle of informing others of their no-nos.

“Sorry, but ALL unlicensed goods and ALL counterfeit merchandise using the Ultimate Warrior Intellectual Property will be removed without warning from all auctions sites, websites or similar.

“It’s MY gimmick. I OWN it. If you want one, do the work it takes to create one for yourself.

“Always Believe,

“Warrior”
