I know i'm gonna get shit on pretty good for even brining this up but holy geezes the warrior returning at WM would so blow my mind!
Picture the nwo gang beating the rock at the end of the hogan match when all of a sudden warriors music fires up and 70,000 people shit their pants at once. Warrior makes the big save celebrates with the rock and dissapears *poof!*
Actually, while on the toilet earlier and in clear foke, my bathroom began to fill with smoke and destructicity. Much to my suprisations, the Ultimate Warrior appeared in the mirror and began to flex in a menacingful way. No doubt this means he is too busy to appear at wrestlemania. Sadly, only I saw him as my dog continued to lick himself in a most uninterested way throughout. Much like the attitude expressed by the WCW "crowds".
Personally - if we're going to have a run in during the finish of Wrestlemania, I'd have it be one of two guys:
(1) Bret Hart - for obvious reasons. He's not the biggest name who's a "free agent" (and don't tell me he's binded to the WWA, if the sides agreed, he'd be in the WWF) but his history with the WWF is enough to make him ruining a main event a big enough surprise. 10 years ago they lived with a screwjob at Wrestlemania 8 - and if the name was right, they could tolerate it again at Wrestlemania X8.
(2) Bill Goldberg - because if you're going to have a killing machine on your roster, it may as well be the best one. I can understand why Stinger likes the idea of seeing Warrior around if he grew up with Warrior as "the man" in wrestling. I didn't really grow up with Goldberg - but nobody has left a bigger imprint on wrestling and looked more like an unstoppable force than him. WCW frigged it up - but I'd like to think (though I'm losing faith daily) that Vince couldn't ruin Goldberg, by making him a whipping boy. A run in by him at Wrestlemania again would have my jaw drop and would be worth the price of admission.
Maybe the Warrior could cut one of those thought provoking promos he used to cut. Like the one here: http://slashwrestling.com/nitro/980817.html
SPEAK TO ME WARRIORS!
Honestly I was the biggest Warrior mark when I was a kid and then when he came back in 1998 he ruined it all. Its one of those things that when you are a kid you think is so great but when you get older you realize how stupid it is. Kind of like the Shirttails or the Atari based Saturday morning cartoons bar Pac Man (cause it was pretty cool).
If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
Didn't somebody transcribe a whole bunch of Warrior speeches? I seem to remember reading them and actually feeling sorry that I hadn't been able to hear them live or on TV, just to get the full effect....
Rah! I'm a Monstah!
I always make it my business to know what I'm doing!
If it is Benoit vs. Kane....then it can still be a good match. Angle carried Kane to a beauty on SmackDown in I think late 2001. Benoit can do it, and he can get credibility for beating a monster. Just like HBK w/ Vader in '96.
