This week’s WWE content on the A&E Network will take fans to the more supernatural realms of WWE lore.

This week’s episode of Biography will cover the life and career of the Ultimate Warrior. Warrior was one of the top superstars of the late 80s and early 90s in the WWE before falling out with the company after his attempted comeback in 1996.

Of course, Ultimate Warrior would reconcile his relationship with the McMahon Family and go into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014 and make his final appearance on the Monday Night Raw following WrestleMania 30. He would pass away 24 hours after his final appearance.

For this week’s episode of WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, there will be an enhanced re-airing of the episode surrounding Undertaker and Kane with never-before-seen footage. The show will return with new content next week featuring Jake Roberts. Roberts currently works for AEW as the manager of Lance Archer.
