Yeah, I'm pretty similar to you in the way that gradually Bret started to become my favourite. Always loved him in his Hart Foundation days & then he started getting his singles run while Warrior was in and out.
I was drawn to the energy & the colours. Something that I always have been (& always will be to an extent) from Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA Mega Drive around the same time, 1991, to my music tastes (happy hardcore). Ultimate Warrior was the perfect guy for me to cheer on, especially compared to Hulk Hogan who was always rammed down our throats. (having said that, so was Warrior but I didn't care)
