Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?
In his prime, only Hogan and Andre had been bigger draws. Considering that Andre wasn't wrestling after Warrior became champion, Warrior was the second biggest draw ever behind Hogan.
It was a huge mistake to change the planned rematch between him and Hogan at Mania 7 because that match would have sold the 100000 tickets at the Memorial Coliseum that they originally booked. It would have also delivered a huge buyrate, maybe even bigger than the year before. Warrior, as well as Hogan, were just that hot.
