If you check out sonicfox's channel on youtube he talks about all three variations and shows off tech for them, might be some stuff you can find there

honestly i'd like to know, is there any point to using warrior variation? aside from gaining a decent wake up game, it seems like u lose too much instead of going with the other variations.

Warrior is there to get in your face and screw you up. His anti-wake up game is pretty good with B3 into EX Dread Slam breaks most if not all wake ups in the game. He can 50/50 loop you in the corner for days with no need for bar (The mixup being either low or grab) and if the Warrior HAS meter he gains a third mixup with Instant Air EX Yajuta Strike, which is an unreactible overhead launcher into tons of damage into Self Destruct setup, then your opponent eats another mixup and it loops till they die or guess right and even then, Self Destruct is covered in plus frames so they eat another. You basically pick this variation for just relentless aggression. There are so many things you make your opponent need to keep in mind that it becomes a terrifying onslaught that can just overwhelm. There is also the "Ronin factor" where if the Warrior player hits you and has 3 bars, he can do about 50-60% of your health and just kill you. The character is insane, I'm surprised it doesn't get a lot of attention.
