Re: The Ultimate Warrior now open to the WWE Hall of Fame!!!
I love threads like this. Really weeds out the men from the boys.
If you think the Warrior was overrated, blah blah blah, there's a really good chance you are too young to know what you're talking about (in which case, shut your mouth and pipe down, kid), or you have been brainwashed by the "E."
Ultimate Warrior at one point eclipsed Hulk Hogan, (No, not the TNA Hulk Hogan), The IMMORTAL Hulk Hogan. The TOP GUY in the history of the business. And to date, children, let me remind you that Ultimate Warrior is the ONLY man to cleanly defeat the Immortal Hulk Hogan, 1-2-3, on the biggest stage of them all, in his prime.
Randy Savage never did it, Ric Flair never did it, Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Andre the Giant, etc etc., ALL fell victim to the Big Boot and Atomic Leg Drop. That is, until Warrior did it at WrestleMania VI.
Now, for those of you that wish to believe that one, Vincent K. McMahon would allow some "overrated, talentless, flash-in-the-pan," guy do this to business, then I can't help you. Fact is, McMahon, Heenan, Hogan, and all the rest set out to destroy UW in that DVD.
Things didn't work out, and they turned rather messy between WWF/Warrior, but the fact remains that he definitely drew as big of reactions as Stone Cold, The Rock, Cena, and Hulk Hogan, but WWE will have it's new legion of fans, or I'm sorry, erm, "The WWE Universe," believe otherwise.
