WWE WARRIOR AWARD 2021: WWE employee Rich Hering receives the Warrior Award as part of the 2021 HOF class

Posted on 4/07/121 by Colin Vassallo

WWE today announced that longtime WWE employee Rich Hering
has been named the recipient of the 2021 Warrior Award.

As WWE’s Senior Vice President of Government Relations and
Risk Management, Hering began his career more than 50 years
ago with Vince McMahon’s father, Vincent J. McMahon, and
helped WWE expand from a regional promotion into the
juggernaut it is today. Whether it is leading security
efforts, working with state athletic commissions and other
organizations on WWE events or overseeing the health and
well-being of WWE talent and fans, Hering has consistently
gone above and beyond the call of his day-to-day

“On behalf of everyone at WWE, we are proud to present Rich
Hering with this incredible honor,” said Stephanie McMahon,
WWE Chief Brand Officer. “Rich has dedicated more than half
a century to WWE and the WWE Universe, and has truly seen
and done it all. From ensuring the health and safety of WWE
Superstars and employees; presiding over the wedding of
Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth; and being an ‘uncle’ to Dana
Warrior and her children, Mattie and Indy, there is no one
more deserving of this accolade.”

Named after WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior, The
Warrior Award is presented to an individual who has
exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance and who lives
life with the courage and compassion that embodies the
indomitable spirit of The Ultimate Warrior.
