Ultimate Warrior's Wife

The Ultimate Warrior's wife is finally opening up about the shocking death of her husband -- saying she's heartbroken by his passing ... but says the touching WWE tribute is helping her cope. 

Dana A. Warrior just released an emotional letter to her husband's fans ... saying, "It is with an absolutely broken heart I reach out to you."

Dana says she tried to keep her daughters insulated from the news coverage -- but allowed them to watch the WWE tribute on Sunday night.

"As the scene unfolded with that amazing roster of talent gathered donning Ultimate Warrior shirts and even his face paint, we cheered and sobbed simultaneously," Dana wrote.

"To everyone who stood there, thank you. My girls will remember your bowed heads for the rest of their lives."

Dana also touched on the moment Warrior collapsed outside their hotel in Arizona -- saying, "I fought and screamed and cried for him not to leave me, but I wasn't to win this round. Heaven won and I lost." 

"But I had the ULTIMATE love for 20 years and my children learned to be Warriors from THE ULTIMATE DAD. I wouldn't trade a moment of the life we shared, good or bad, for anything on God's green earth."

Regardless of what he did as a profession people, it sounds like he was a good person, a good father, a good husband. That is a hell of a lot harder than wrestling.
Touching letter...My heart goes out to that family

Some of you people are seriously demented. I seriously hope karma finds it's way to each and every one of you who had some stupid rude 2 cents to put in. If someone made fun of or mocked someone you lost, I'm sure it would be a different story. This man was a good husband and a good father who made something with his life.

WWE has always been there (or tried to) for their employees and wrestlers. Class act company. UW was my favorite growing up, true legend and will never be forgotten.

I grew up with him on my tv every Saturday. This wrestling that's out now is garbage. He was truly the ultimate warrior. May your family find peace and comfort in this time of grief. God had other plans for him to be a heavenly warrior

He was a raging tea party nutcase. Burn in hell, Warrior.
