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
