And by God, he seems almost... normal! He's promoting the next Legends of Wrestling game - and sure, it's revisionist history, but he really doesn't come off as insane as he normally does. Even says he'll never wrestle for Vince again. Ever. And y'know, I believe him.
But I do concur that Warrior actually comes out semi-coherent this time around. But it might very well be the work of some clever copy-editing/translating.
Edge: So Triple H wants me to come to Raw and fight him for the big gold belt. I've TOTALLY passed you on the card. Jericho: Yeah, but while Triple H is burying you, I get to make out with Trish in front of millions. You tell ME who the winner is here, junior!
"An outrageously ripped body builder and former chiropractic student who broke into the business with the name The Dingo Warrior, helped transform the then WWF from a side show to one of the greatest shows on earth as he dropped Dingo for Ultimate, and became a living, breathing, clotheslining, super hero the likes of whom, the squared circle had never seen."
Pure. Fucking. Gold.
You think WWE now is bad? Some of us had to live through 1993-1996!
Originally posted by This Is Just WrongI like how he said he still could wrestle (5 or 6 years left is what he said)
Have you seen a pic of this guy recently...not pretty
Kind of looks like the lead singer of Nickleback
You mean, like this?
Not too pleasent...but wouldn't have been a gas to have seen him wear an Ultimate Warrior print tie?
SD2: April, Year 3; what's the point to the Career mode, anyhow? FF7: Disc 1; 4h into game; en route to the next reactor FF8: Disc 2; 15h into game; Squall, Rinoa, Irvine vs. Master NORG. FF9: Disc 1; 6h into game; Hunting down Dagger after she drugged me!
When I was a kid, I never really liked the Ultimate Warriar. But, looking back, he definatly made an impression on professional wrestling during his time and had very memorable moments. When he came to WCW Nitro in 1998, it made me feel like a kid again when he confronted Hulk Hogan and spoke of their history. Warriar even pulled a shoot on Ed Leslie by asking Hogan w/ The Disciple behind him, "who's that supposed to be, your barber?".The big Wrestlemania 6 rematch occured at Halloween Havoc 98, and was a complete failure. In retrospect, I think many fans would enjoy seeing Warriar one more time. Even though I hate to admit it, he is a "mark's legend" if anything. I think in some sick way, all of us would like to see him in present day WWE, and how he would fare in fueds with Goldberg, Brock Lesner and even Chris Benoit.
I can't explain it. He was alright as the Commissioner in the last days of WCW, but that is about as far as I'd go. In 1998, a lot of people were making some noise about his supposed stellar mic skills, but I never really dug them.
