Ultimate Warrior speaks about being fired

filed to GERWECK.NET:

In part 1 of his MLW Radio appearance, which is available right now on, The Ultimate Warrior spoke about Vince McMahon firing him and the British Bulldog during the federal steroid investigation. Warrior claimed they were fired for drug test failures that never actually occurred.

“Vince was feeling the heat from the federal investigation in what ultimately became an indictment over the steroid thing. It’s another one of those instances where he did what he had to do to protect his foremost interest, which was himself and his business. He made the claim that me and Davey Boy, Davey Boy got let go at the same time, that we had violated the drug policy at the time, which wasn’t true.”

“We deposed Dr. Di Pasquale, who was in charge [of the drug policy]. We went to Canada and deposed him as part of the litigation and he said it wasn’t true. He was the guy that had the absolute authority in the program to decide who should be let go or if there was a different way of evaluating something. If they saw something on a wellness program test or something, it was up to him. He said he was totally shocked and surprised when Vince let me go and fired me. He never got a reason.”

Part 2 of The Ultimate Warrior on MLW Radio with Mister Saint Laurent will be available this Thursday on, iTunes and syndicated by

    I guess that explains why Vince got rid of Warrior and Bulldog.

    SO, even though him and Davey Boy both admitted to using steroids at the time how were they not violating the policy? I could see if he claimed it wasn’t used fairly because others were using too. To claim though that he wasn’t in violation seems silly. Also, Warlord was released a little bit earlier for the same reason. These guys had steroids written all over them.
