Narrarator: It was a legacy marred with bad business deals and bad relationships.

Clip of Warrior shaking his head uncontrollably and screaming: Ah ah ah ah ah ah!"


Okay, I must, must, MUST get this DVD~!~!~!

HHH: "Probably 1 of the most unprofessional guys I've stepped in the ring with."

What's that about the pot, a kettle, and the color black?

Now that's just ridiculous to say. Anybody who's ever gotten into the ring with HHH has always said he's a great worker and one of the most professional guys in the ring.

And I am very intrigued by this DVD. It doesn't exactly look like a 2 hour Bash Warrior DVD. Looking at the trailer, the story seems to be about this guy who had a great look and great charisma who worked his way up through the ranks and became a huge star then couldn't handle the pressure of being a huge star and thus the "self destruction".

I loved the Warrior when I was younger. I still have all my Warrior posters and even two of those cloth hanging things. I think I'll be getting this DVD.

Maybe they did a house show run together. Someone more informed than me probably knows if they did or not.

As for the DVD itself, while I'm VERY curious about the content of the documentary, this doesn't seem like it would merit repeat viewings. I won't be buying it, but it's already in my Netflix queue.

Well, the story is that Hunter went up to Warrior backstage at WrestleMania and wanted to plan out a nice back-and-forth, dramatic match. Warrior responded with something to the effect of "No. I hit you with my move and we're done in two minutes." I also think there was some story to him no-selling the pedigree. Ever since then, Hunter hasn't been too fond of Warrior.

Personally, September 27th can't get here soon enough. I'm really looking forward to this DVD, both for the story of Warrior's problems as well as Warrior's whacky promos.

I wonder how many times Vince 'insisted' on that last line of the trailer being that the Warrior was "...not to be seen again."

And yeah, this looks like a renter. I can't see myself wanting to OWN a DVD about the guy.

Is that a joke about HHH/Warrior having a house show run? I doubt Warrior even did 1 house show during his 1996 run in WWF. I'll be happy as long as they add in the most bizzare Warrior promo of all time: "Amanda Ultimate Warrior". That one still keeps me up at tnight sometimes...

Vince was punishing HHH back in 1996 after the MSG Clique incident. He had to put warrior over while scsa was winning kotr.

WrestleMania XII: 31 March 1996

Vince would have to have had the astonishing ability to see the future in order for that statement to be true.

I sure hope they have some footage covering the start of the Ultimate Warrior as well. Cover a little of his Blade Runner days and maybe his mini-feud with Hercules Hernandez.

Sure, the guy sounds like a loon these days, but he has stuck to his convictions buy not participating in this. He could have gotten a bunch of money to sit in a room and provide counter-points to all his peers.

"I could not wait to fire him." Hee.

But if everyone, including Vince himself, felt this way about Ultimate Warrior... why'd they bring him back in the first place? Were they just that desperate for somebody, anybody who was a household name?

What's he supposed to say? "Probably one of the most unprofessional guys I've stepped in the ring with...except me, that time I wrestled myself. Man, I was a total dick, and didn't sell any of my offense."

Since I'm back in Florida again, I just wanted to tell you that Walmart (at least in Boca Raton) broke streetdate again and is already selling the Warrior DVD for 15,84 $!


EDIT: I just saw the limited edition version of the DVD (only to be bought at fye I think). It has a second disc with it and includes 3 Warrior matches against Hercules (I don' t remember which one), Slaughter (SNME91) and Macho (SSl92)! Price is 19,99 $!
