Only man to no sell the pedigree. Hunter still wakes up shaking because of it.

"Pro Wrestling" can be 100 terrible looking punches & a sloppy headbutt as long as the crowd is going ape shit, which is what the Warrior would do to the crowd in his prime.

We're not discussing amateur wrestling, or catch wrestling are we? Pro grapps is all about entertainment.

That was the 1980's, where half the people thought it was real. Warrior would get EATEN ALIVE today (I mean as a new act, not as a legend, obviously). Case in point, Big Dave. People have been conditioned by the Internet way of looking at wrestling to expect at least a reasonable workrate today, if not higher.

That is pretty much 100% true.

They fit his character to perfection and on the big stage he more often than not fucking delivered when it mattered.
And that's the bottom line.

Re: are there any wrestlers worse than the ultimate warrior?

Seriously.. back to back classics at WM and the series with Rude and we still have this ignorant crap? He isn't the greatest of all time in the ring, but he knew enough of his style and how to use it that he was at least a passable hand in the ring. I know I know, popular opinion formed by McMahon's propoganda (really need to get the new DVD) but if you look at the Warrior, he was a good talent. Comparing him to the dregs of wrestling just shows the ignorance of some fans.

And I say this as a full on admitted technically biased mark... I give huge props to Warrior, Hogan, and Piper for knowing their style and maxmising it. You cannot say any of those three were legitimately terrible unless you are simply a spot fest workrate mark that has no understanding of ring psychology and that different styles can actually be amazing. Wrestling would be boring with only Bret Harts.. yes I said it, we need more than just that.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

Yeah, that's great. I'm sure George Mikan would dominate Lebron now too.

I would hope not, he's fucking atrocious. When you have a bad match with Daniel Bryan, you might as well give it up. Not saying he's as bad as Warrior but he's really, REALLY bad.

Laughed hard at Umaga, though.
