Re: Ultimate Warrior
Sure Jim Hellwig might have been different than most other wrestlers, it was said he and Savage where kind of from the same breed. Sure Hellwig might have been an asshole, but as mentioned, so was a lot of stars at the time like Hogan, Broyd, HBK, Dynamite and the list goes on. It have been said thousands of times that the wrestling business is a cut throat business so you need to be an asshole to stay on top.
The difference between Warrior and 99% of the other wrestlers is that he saw wrestling in the same light as both Brock Lesnar and Goldberg;as a business to make money. None of them had the passion like Flair (To spend all due to his gimick an being an alcoholic) They just wanted to come in and get so much money as possible for their respective families. Nothing wrong with that
As for the name change, he did it for legal reasons. If not Mcmahon might have prevented him from using his wrestling name. A bit strange, but he totally f*cked Vince with that move, which not many wrestlers have done
What a horrible night to have a curse
