Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

Warrior was Top 10 biggest stars of all time in his prime. The fact that he rivaled Hogan to the point where they wanted to put him over him clean at WM says it all because it was the first clean loss for Hogan in many years. He was mega charismatic, captivating with larger than life presence and character. But overall, even with the fact that he was close or up there with Hogan, he's not Savage or Andre.

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

Probably still my favorite entrance, was my fave wrestler as a kid, obviously back then I was easily entertained and wasn't yet into the more tecnichal side of wrestling but Warrior was very captivating, learned alot more since of course but still enjoy watching old matches and promos...

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

From about '89 to '90, you could argue he was almost as big as Hogan, maybe bigger, both popularity and physique wise.


And, as someone else pointed out, his entrance was epic. My favorite entrance ever. His theme song is still one of the greatest workout adrenaline themes out there.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

Warrior looked set to be the successor to Hogan's throne. Giving him a clean win over Hogan at Wrestlemania shows that they had huge faith in him to be the next torch bearer. Unfortunately, his giant ego got in the way of whatever longterm success he could've had, but (with Hogan exploring other mainstream ventures), for a while Warrior looked set to be the face of the company. The kids loved him, he had a strong persona, he had a distinctive look that shifted merchandise and he wrestled the kind of superhuman, big man brawls that the casual fans loved. After the steroid scandal changed the face of the WWF main event, though, I think that Warrior became quickly outdated. I'm not sure he would've had the longevity of Hogan, if he had stuck around.

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

I guess he was about as big as steroids can make a human being.

WOULD YOU PLEASE. SHUT. THE HELL. UP?

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

He was more edgy than Punk, More electrifying than the Rock, More attitude than Stone Cold, more over than Ryback, more delusional than mankind and dressed like tantaka on PCP..


He had it all baby.....


Ok he was over and due to be the next face, but lets face it his ring skills and Ego would have always held him back long term..

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

The Ultimate Warrior was fantastic back then, as so many have already said, he was electrifying! Just had a little more than Hogan. Hogan was great also, and was a big fan of Hogans first, but as the Ultimate Warrior cam on the scene, he quickly became a favourite and was just "different" from Hogan.

His runs down to the ring and shaking the ropes was great to watch, and as I grew up Hogan felt more for the kids and The Ultimate Warrior was more aggressive and looked crazy( kind of like a teenager ) so he grew on me more and a lot of the fans were starting to think the same, but warrior just kind of faded and went to WCW in the late 90's etc.

But overall for such a short time and presence he made a massive impact and is still impacting people today!....have a look....

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

Warrior is simply one of them rare guys with the silent charisma. Not very good on the microphone at all, not even the best in the ring, in fact very poor in the ring but boy was he entertaining. From the rope shaking, to the no selling, the running around the ring, the power shots, the tassels, the colours, it was brilliant, the fact he beat Hogan was even better (was never a Hogan fan).
