WWE News: Zack Ryder Falls Victim to Ultimate Warrior's Wrath

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IMarch 8, 2012

The Ultimate Warrior, or now simply known as Warrior, is famous for his off-the-wall comments and cryptic video messages that he posts to his official YouTube channel and on his official Twitter account.


Over the last year, Warrior has focused his attention to his former arch nemesis, Hulk Hogan, voicing his opinions on the iconic superstar's private and professional life.

But a new WWE superstar has received attention from the Warrior. Zack Ryder has posted some pictures on his official Twitter account of his Z! TLIS action figure from Ringsidecollectables.com, with his trademark Broski sunglasses and sporting the Warrior's well-known face paint.

Warrior has seen the photos and posted the following on his official Twitter account:

@RingsideC @ZackRyder Having fun with MY UW marks is one thing, violating my TM rights is another. Don't think so...someone needs to rethink

Ryder has responded with the following from his official Twitter account:

Zack Ryder@ZackRyder

To clear up any confusion, the Z! TLIS action figures are custom made. They will not be mass produced or for sale anywhere...

The Warrior is fanatical when it comes to people infringing on his trademarks, and with good reason. In 1993, Jim Helwig legally changed his name to simply Warrior.  The Warrior name appears on all legal documents, and his children carry Warrior as their legal surname. 

Zack Ryder may be in for some legal action by Warrior, despite apologizing to him.
