Ultimate Warrior at his peak was probably the most charismatic guy ever

I am so glad to see so many people hating on Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior. What a terrible documentary. Warrior ruled so hard. Still watch his matches to this day. His matches were fun, and his character was super unique. Intergalactic gladiator empowered by the gods of the universe. How cool is THAT? Warrior rocked.

The character was edgy and exciting to watch, he certainly rivaled HH's popularity in the wrestling world but it waned fast as his unreliability led to extended periods of absence.

Warrior was the IT guy and could take over Hogan when he left WWE, at the time Hogan/Warrior is like Austin-Rock in 90's. It's interesting WWE only mention Rock-Austin-Hogan but forgot about Warrior, Warrior been top guy for short time but he WAS the top guy next to Hogan Level or above...

Warrior was insanely over in hisday.

The fact that he got a fan following today, and got mentioned on WWE from time to time is one indication he is a big name and a cult figure. The most recent time was when WWE made the list of wrestlers who should come back for one more match. The Self Destruction DVD was just overly WWE bashing propaganda, since Warrior refused to come to terms with McMahon. As metioned, the DVD is made buy ass kissers to McMahon, and people who hated him. Why not have wrestlers who liked Warrior,guys like Virgil, Kamala, Savage, Sherri, Martel among others.



I don't get it why people claim he has a huge ego and it would be something negative. Warrior, just like Goldberg, Lesnar saw the wrestling business as a business. Get, make it to the top, earn money and get out. Dont be like used up guys like Flair or Valentine still wrestling in small venues, living on their past glory.

Warrior sure got a huge ego, but he is one of the few that got the better of McMahon and left on his own terms (well he got fired on times too), and refused to go back. In 1998 Warrior got at huge deal with WWE, but refused to come back. He made his moeny and wanted to be in control of his own destiny. From his past experinces with McMahon, who made anything to own the Warrior character and stuff.
How many wrestler go to autograph signings, supposed to be there for 2 hours but stays 6 hours, so that everyone could meet him who wanted to.

For a short time The Ultimate Warrior was as big a star as Hulk Hogan although he didn't crossover into the mainstream on the same level but as far as the wrestling industry was concerned he was as big and a HUGE draw. I've always compared Goldberg to The Ultimate Warrior in that for a very short time both were HUGE draws and major stars that rivalled the biggest stars ever but both overrate their impact on the business and could have been bigger stars if not for their ego.

In his first run in WWE the feuds The Ultimate Warrior had with Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, The Undertaker and Rick Rude are legendary and were among the best ever at the time they happened but his second run could have realistically seen him become an even bigger star as Hulk Hogan wouldn't have been around for long. Once he returned at WrestleMania 8 the plans were to build towards putting The Ultimate Warrior on top as THE main man in WWE and the one the company was built around despite what Bret Hart will say.

Unfortunately it never worked out and The Ultimate Warrior was gone within six months of his return and Vince McMahon decided to go with smaller wrestlers on top because of the steroid scandal and wanting to expand into other countries which saw Bret Hart pushed as the top babyface. His third run was never going to work because too much time had passed and WWE had gotten used to wrestlers who were real like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Owen Hart rather than the larger than life cartoon characters of the previous era and The Ultimate Warrior simply didn't fit in.
