Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?
First I would agree with others. The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior is just a way to smear Warrior and make money. It's easily the worst DVD the WWE has put out.
That being said he was a pretty big. He could draw money and put butts in seats. Really isn't that the name of the game. When he was paired with Savage, you could get a good match out of him. Mostly a credit to Savage, but they had some good matches. He couldn't cut a good promo at all, but at the same time he has some very memorable promos. The WM match with Hogan will always be his biggest moment. Although I have some fond memories of the awful feuds with Papa Shango and The Undertaker. But people came to see him and he had a very strong following. I think as a kid if you didn't like Hogan, Warrior was probably your guy.
