Yes, I remember being completely weirded out the first time I saw the WrestleMania VI tape, as Hogan & Warrior cut the most insane, egotistical promos I have EVER heard, right back to back. It started with Hogan saying that Warrior would have to latch on to Hulk-a-mania in order to be saved by it's awesome power, and Warrior responded saying that Hulk-a-mania and Warrior... uh, a-mania (?) were the two strongest forces in the universe and Sean Mooney didn't deserve to breathe the same air as them and Warrior would carry the torch once Hogan crumbled at his feet.

Just insane shit. God, I can't wait for that 2-disc Ultimate Warrior DVD!

Outside of Eric the Redd's bone, there was nothing kookier than these promos. And honestly, I'd kill to hear something like that today.

Also notable on Mania 6, is Big Boss Man referring to Slick as a pimp. I mean, honestly, he didn't imply it, he came right out and said pimp. No one answered my "what's a pimp" query until I was fourteen.

I think that promo is awesome, and hilarious- but most importanly its entertaining, even if in a "wow , this guy is a freakin lunatic" sort of way.

Then again, I would think its awesome... considering...

    God, I remember that promo. It didn't sound quite as insane at the time, but Hogan frequently spoke in apocalyptic terms about his matches. His every move was earthquake or hurricane-inducing.

    This all reached a climax in the buildup to Mania VI, which I think delivered some of the all-time weirdest promos. He and the Ultimate Warrior cut truly brain-melting stuff. Warrior would go on and on in those pretaped promos during a Big Bully Busick match about the sun being alligned with the seventh ring of Saturn and on that day Mars would break open with a beam of red light, pouring strength into the Warrior's body and transforming Toronto into a sea of flames that he and Hogan would do battle over.

    And in response, Hogan also upped the crazy factor. On my Wrestlemania VI tape, in the pre-match promo he's going on about how when he's got the Warrior down, to breath his last breath into Hogan, so Hogan can save all the little Warriors.

    It seems crazy now, and rightfully so, but remember this was the late 80s. All of our wrestlers/rock stars were fucking lunatics.

This has some of Warrior's promo's, including the WMVI gem.


    WWF WrestleMania VI: Warrior vs Hulk Hogan (1990)

    "You are nothing but a normal, you don't deserve to breathe the same air that I and Hulk Hogan do. Hulk Hogan, I must ask you now as you asked me, do you Hulk Hogan want your ideas, your beliefs to live forever? For Hulk Hogan in this normal world, physically none of us can live forever. But the places you have taken the Hulkamaniacs, the ideas and beliefs that you have given them can live through me Hulk Hogan. That is why I breathe, that is why the Warriors have come. Hulk Hogan there are ones that question where you are taking them. Do you no longer want to walk or step into that darkness? Hulk Hogan that darkness I speak of is nothing of fear. It is about the beliefs...of excepting any and all challenges at the cost of losing everything Hulk Hogan. You have lived Hulk Hogan for the last 5 Wrestlemania's for this one belief. Now Hulk Hogan, I come to take what you believe in, further then you ever could. I come Hulk Hogan, not to destroy the Hulkamaniacs and Hulkamania. I come Hulk Hogan to bring the Warriors and Hulkamaniacs together as one as we Hulk Hogan except all the challenges with all the strength of the Warriors and Hulkamaniacs together. Hulk Hogan the colors of the Hulkamaniacs are coming through the pores of my skin...and Hulk Hogan when we meet Hulk Hogan, I will look at you and you will realize then that I have come to do no one no harm, but only Hulk Hogan to take what we both believe in to places it shall never have been."

Did Brock Lesnar study Warrior promos? Seeing that transcript makes me wonder if that's where he picked up his disdain of pronouns.

Gotta love how the top of that page talks about how Ultimate Warrior was allegedly a "skilled orator". Heehee.

Not to pimp myself here (the link in my sig does it just fine), but I thought I'd bring this thread sort of full circle and provide a link to the piece for which I wanted the Hogan "insane" promo. After all, wanting a transcript of someone being basically insane isn't the most common of requests. The Hogan promo is the 6th paragraph from the bottom on this page. But things might make sense if you scroll up to the Hogan picture and start that section from the top. Anyway, many thanks again to hhhgamewmx7, and I'm glad to see that many other people seemed to enjoy this weird topic.

I think my favorite part of Hogan's insane promo is that he tells all the Hulkamaniacs to get on his back, and then he'll *do the backstroke* to get them to safety. If they're on his back, and he does the backstroke, they all *drown*. Think about it!

Know what's funny? If this same speech were delivered by a heel character whose whole gimmick was that he was dangerously insane, it'd be freaking GOLD. Like, I imagine the Waylon Mercy character giving this speech, and man...creepy.

It really doesn't do it justice in print since Warrior prounounced his name as HOOOOO KOGAN every time he said it during that promo.

Personally, I won't buy any video that blurs out the old WWF scratch logo and removes all references to the name of the company. I don't care anymore that they changed the company name, but nothing pisses me off more than altered archive footage.
