Ultimate Warrior

Wrestler's Widow Receiving

Special Help From WWE

4/12/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0411-tmz-warrior
The WWE is helping Ultimate Warrior's wife cope with her husband's sudden death  ... flying two senior WWE officials to Arizona to stand by and help her.

We're told the WWE sent the employees almost immediately after Warrior died ... their main task is helping his wife Dana handle little things --  grocery shopping, letting other family members know what's going on -- so she can focus on being with their daughters.

It's sounds bizarre ... top officials leaving their jobs to handle mundane chores, but that's how important Warrior was to the WWE.

As we previously reported, Warrior died outside an Arizona hotel Tuesday ... after suffering what officials called a "catastrophic medical event."

During his recent WWE Hall of Fame induction, Warrior had high praise for his wife.

They gave Vickie the same treatment when Eddie died. Noble.

that doesn't sound bizarre, it is a really good thing they are doing. It should help her a lot. If only all organisations were so compassionate

Well...once her grieving is done, she will find a new man and live once more...which is good for her. Of course, her new man will have to explain what those round fleshy things are hanging between his legs.

Not surprised at all. Back in the day, long before WWE/WWF, when they did matches in small towns, you actually could wait outside and meet them. I met a few as a kid, and they always came out together, really happy, joking around. For the most part they were all really great guys, and I think they have always been one big family. A dysfunctional family at times, but they really do look out for each other.

He must have signed a pretty hefty deal that they don't want his wife to dispute.

WWE is known for this sort of thing. They did the same with Vickie Guerrero. They also pay for any of their ex-wrestler's rehab if they ask. They either have a good heart or an incredible PR division.

It Does Not sound Like WWE is Concerned about the Wife as much as they are concerned about what she has to say about her Husbands use of Steroids!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually believe this story. True compassion does happen, as opposed to the "Our thoughts and prayers go to..." standard form press release. Well done.

This is how it's done. Treat your employees with respect, treat their families the same
