Bootleggers trying to make money off Ultimate Warrior's death

Published Add your comment

Just 24 hours after the WWE paid tribute to the memory of the Ultimate Warrior on Raw, it has emerged that the former wrestler's estate is in the middle of a legal battle concerning his merchandise.

As reported by TMZ, Ultimate Creations are trying to stop knock off goods being sold by bootleggers looking to make a quick buck on the back of the legendary wrestler's death.

In the days that have passed since the news broke that the former wrestler had passed away various T-shirts, and other merchandise, appeared for sale online with the Ultimate Warrior branding prevalent - the legitimacy of which was always questionable.

And now it seems those left in charge of the Ultimate Warrior brand are pursuing those selling the goods in a bid to stop distribution, with reports suggesting a cease and desist letter has been sent out to over one hundred merchandisers.

It is unfortunate that the death of a once great wrestler has been broken down to economic factors, but it is understandable that the Ultimate Creations company is seeking to find legitimate earnings for themselves at present.

We definitely prefer the WWE"s way of paying respect to the man.
