Hogan was the biggest star for a long time.The only time he was challenged for a small time period in-between was by Warrior.

I watched Self Destruction of Warrior-That shit is unreliable.

He was pretty huge, jockeying for position with Hogan. They were both terrible.

Dont watch the Self Destruction of Ultimate Warrior if you want to find answers how big Warrior was. Bunch of tools and ass kissers bashing him because Vince is mad that Warrior screwed him multiple times.

Warrior was one of the bigger than life characters that many people miss and he is still one of the most recognizable characters after so many years.
Listen to the pops during his original run, one of the most iconic wrestlers and people will still remember him for a long time

He was the Icon of that era. Who else could claim to pin Hogan clean on PPV before he did that in the Champion vs Champion match at WM VI? NOBODY!

He was mega over. Fans loved him. He was ELECTRIFYING the crowds with his intensity and energy, just like The Rock would do almost a decade later. He was becoming a true alternative for Hogan but poor booking decisions, and McMahon being an asshole were the reasons that he could not replace Hogan. McMahon has this habit of not paying performers their PPV salary on time, and Warrior made sure he didnt work without getting paid, which pissed Vince off. Warrior had held Vince on separate occasion regarding monetary issues.

Warrior's promos may not make much sense, but they were great enough to captivate fans of all ages. His matches may be short, but were intense and electric. His run-up to the ring was amazing, and fans would look at him in awe while he would sprint to the ring and do his shtick. He was a face painted phenomenon, bigger than everybody (except Hogan), bigger than Macho Man, bigger than Taker, bigger than Piper at that time

In his prime, only Hogan and Andre had been bigger draws. Considering that Andre wasn't wrestling after Warrior became champion, Warrior was the second biggest draw ever behind Hogan.

It was a huge mistake to change the planned rematch between him and Hogan at Mania 7 because that match would have sold the 100000 tickets at the Memorial Coliseum that they originally booked. It would have also delivered a huge buyrate, maybe even bigger than the year before. Warrior, as well as Hogan, were just that hot.

Seeing as Hogan was also a huge name in the media outside of wrestling, I don't think so.

In the wrestling world, he rivaled Hogan.

Outside, not even close.

How could he have ever become bigger than Hogan when Hogan was still there in main events and semi main events. Every huge buyrate, Hogan gets credit for when he's on the card, rightfully so. But Warrior could never get out of Hogans shadow because of it. So, yes he was only second behind Hogan in 1990.
